Total Solar Eclipse (2017)



The total solar eclipse from Madras, Oregon on August 21, 2017. As the moon passed in front of the sun turning day to night and revealing the sun’s corona, apparently all I could think to say was ‘Oh my goodness!’

Everyone says not to photograph your first solar eclipse and I think they might be right. I was focused on getting the exposure right for Bailey’s beads and the diamond ring, plus making sure to get the corona and solar flares. This was a bit stressful but I’m delighted with the results.

This video originally included more info but since I’m uploading from Madras where the internet is sluggish, I cut out three minutes so the upload would happen before I had to leave for my flight.

Special thanks also to Dr. Teagan Wall for sharing this experience with me and Raquel Nuno for inspiring me to come to Oregon.

  1. I took the family camping at Ochoco Lake (SW of Madras), to watch the eclipse. I remember how much traffic there was afterwards (hours of bumper to bumper), and from a man who absolutely hates traffic, taking the family to watch something that lasted only 3 minutes was “totally” worth it. The awe and magical experience shared with the group around us was amazing. I remember not expecting the sudden decrease in temperature as the total eclipse approached. But I was really amazed by this black hole in the sky with wispy hair like filaments of light emerging out all around the edge of the dark disk. It was one of the most memorable moments in my life and watching the video brought me back to that place. I’m looking forward to 2024.
