On August 21st, a solar eclipse will cross the country. Living in New Jersey, unfortunately there won’t be a total eclipse. Instead there will be a partial one, similar to the image above. I made that photograph in May 1994 using a telephoto lens. I should have had my telescope, but didn’t want to drag it to work, where I was at the time. The reflections were caused by UV filter which I forgot to remove.
So, wherever you are on August 21st, head outside, and with proper eye protection, look skyward and watch the eclipse.
