All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
And all that you love
And all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save
And all that you give
And all that you deal
And all that you buy
Beg, borrow or steal
And all you create
And all you destroy
And all that you do
And all that you say
And all that you eat
And everyone you meet
And all that you slight
And everyone you fight
And all that is now
And all that is gone
And all that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon

There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark.

I am not living in the lucky area for this year. :(
Few years ago there was a solar eclips in Belgium. I took some pictures with my telescope with a solar filter. This a real photo and not photoshopped. :D

I wont. :yabbem:
For TJ :

It sucks that I wont be able to see much of anything. I'm just going to wait for the 2017 eclipse.

I live about 30mins from Denver, this should be epic.

Anybody wanna sell me 3 pairs of those glasses for my family? I can't see to find anywhere that doesn't do bulk, and I don't trust a company to get them to process them and get them to my door before the 20th.

Try asking a printing or camera shop that still use lith film and you can make your own glasses. :yh:

MUCH better is to go to a welding shop or something like Harbor Freight

Get some welder's glass

You could also simply make a pinhole "camera"

Peace,
