We are fortunate to live in Fair Oaks, California in the path of the viewing area for the annular eclipse that occurred Sunday.
I didn't have any special filtered glasses to view it directly, so I made a simple pinhole calendar, which I remembered doing the last time there was a solar eclipse.
I projected the sun's image on a piece of paper, and it was great, but I think one thing I might have done different would be to use a colored paper instead of a white paper so that it would be easier to show the contrast.
After I took a few quick snaps of the paper with the sun's image on it as the moon was moving across it, I was hurrying back into the house because dinner was cooking, when I noticed these funny patterns on the pool deck. I snapped a few between bites of dinner, and you can see that at this point, it was just a slight crescent.
It was hard to see the ring of fire without looking directly at the sun (which I wasn't about to do without protection), but it was a lot of fun!
