Weather and Seasons - Solar Eclipse
In August 2017, I "watched" the Solar Eclipse by the lake at Rockville Hills Regional Park. I pointed my camera up, and then looked
into my display screen.
The morning fog had just about burned off before the eclipse started. I was amazed to see that as the eclipse progressed, the fog reversed direction and started flowing inland again.
A phenomenon I did not expect: lens flares in the shape of the eclipsed sun!
But I was able to track the progress of the eclipse by the changing size of the lens flares.
More and more clouds were coming in to obscure the sun!
But when the clouds were just a thin layer, it made taking a photo easier. This is the actual sun, not a lens flare.
Crazy pink lens flare!
By the time the eclipse was over and I was coming down the main trail, pretty much all of Suisun Valley was overcast.
