It's red from the filter that telescope was using, we could see solar flares with that one it was amazing :D Without any filters you would hurt your eyes unless your in the area that has a 100% eclipse.

The last photo is the shadows, usually the shadows are a bunch of circles because of the sun, but because of the moon covering the sun it became a bunch of presents. So basically the shadows are creating a thousand pin hole cameras and the eclipse is being projected.


Here's what it looked like without a filter

Amazing pics!!! Thanks so much for sharing.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I went outside and the light was darker than usual for that time of day. My daughter's BF took a pic, my camera couldn't handle anything like that.
