Solar eclipse

The clouds moved on,  and this is what we see inside the box.  Not a stellar picture, but balancing the box, aiming it correctly,  and manipulating the phone to take the picture was getting hilarious.  You can see the "bite " the moon is taking, though.  It is only a partial solar eclipse, but still not seen very often.  We're glad we took the time.

 

 

Solar Eclipse- sort of

We prepared two boxes: pinhole on one side, white paper on the other inside end.  (As in the picture)  Went outside and saw the beginning of the eclipse-  lower right side of the sun with  a bite being taken.  Then the clouds rolled in. The second picture is where the sun is - behind the clouds.  At least we saw the beginning!

Destruction Island


Destruction Island
from Kalaloch Campground
It almost looks like it's on fire, the sunset is so red this day.
The sunset silhouettes the island and shows the lighthouse at the south (left) end.
The rocks around the island, and between the island and the shore,
are what gave it its descriptive name.
