Whether you were aware or not, our Moon tried to obsure the life-giving light of the sun for a few brief moments on Christmas Day 2000…but only with 50% success. Many people got a good glimpse with the help of eclipse glasses and other filters.
As for me, I was trying to squint and see…but to no avail, so I went back inside to eat more turkey and open presents. I knew it was happening, I just couldn’t see it. For the remainder of the day, I was seeing spots before my eyes.
Well, my friend Damon, who is an excellent photographer, got the opportunity to record the events of the heavenly dance from lovely, tropical Dayton, Ohio with his telescope and camera equipment, having MUCH success!
He just recently posted his photographs on his website HERE. Go have a look…they are simply breath-taking pictures with an amusing storyline! I thanked him for sharing these beautiful images with me, as I was extremely disappointed I wasn’t prepared to see the specticle with my own eyes.
