A Couple of My Eclipse Photos from Today
Today I went to Greenwood, SC, had a nice lunch at the Amish Oven Restaurant, then went to the City Park and set up to watch the first total eclipse to cross the entire Continental USA since 1918. The next total eclipse will be in 2024 but not in my area of SC. I try to never miss seeing the only opportunity I will ever have.
The (1st) Total Eclipse Photo was taken with my Sony DSC-HX400V, 20.4 MP Camera at a zoom of about 30x. I tried to zoom larger, but kept losing my target. The (2nd) Partial Eclipse was taken with my Mac iPhone 7 Mini, 12 mp looking through a telescope. I used my Wicked Laser Glasses to shield the lenses.
It is truly deplorable and beyond the immagination of most that Americans have let their once great Nation slip into the abyss of the doldrums, and for the top five stories on RT (Russia Today), the BBC and several other International Broadcasts to be about the tragedy and stupidity that occured yesterday in Charlottesville, Virginia. Black vs. White… Left vs Right… We all lose. The “once looked up to USA,” is now the “fire hydrant” for every mad-dog to take aim at. We are headed to WAR… if not from without, certainly from within. A man in Ukraine asked me today, “What the hell has happened to your country?” He continued, “I once dreamed of going there, but now I feel safer right here in Ukraine, even with fighting going on than I would in your country. Why did you Americans let that happen?” I hope we can avoid a war. War often does not determine “Who is right…just who is left.” May God help us, because we seem impotent to help ourselves.
