Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The Eclipse of 2017

“The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts”.- Wikipedia

We are sporting the Celestron ISO Certified, 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Observing Kit that I purchased from Amazon in June.I wanted to make sure I got the glasses before they sold out. I did research to make sure the glasses were legit too. I am so glad I did because there was a big recall on a bunch of different glasses that would not protect your eyes properly.

We went early and left right around the time when the heat was starting to rise.

A few of these photos for taken when my family and I went for a day during Easter weekend to the beach. We hadn’t been to the beach in over two years so it was really nice to get back! The weather was perfect and better than we expected for on April day (usually it does nothing but rain here in Oregon during this month)!  Enjoy the pictures!  I plan on sharing more from our trip soon!
