Pic Today 8/5/17





ONCE IN A LIFETIME EVENT

Monday, August 21

Take the day off.
Where will you be? 

They say this one's 
going to be spectacular.

If you're lucky enough 
to be in the path.
You're in for a treat.

See above map for the U.S.
You'll notice Cuba, Missouri,
is one of the featured cities.

I'll be on the gravel bar, in the middle
of the Meramec River.

(Photo is typical corona display
when the moon gets exactly between
the Sun and the Earth.)

Time stops.  You can see stars
in the sky!   Animals hide.
Birds are silent.

Be there!

  3. Precioso, magestuosa sera eza luna negra, pues es la que toca cuando un año tiene 13 nuevas. Y hasta perderemos 48.2 gramos... es increible todo lo que nos rodea y pasa sin darnos cuenta a veces.

    Un abrazo de luz ☆
