Ring of Fire

Lake Tahoe was one of the lucky places to be to view the solar eclipse yesterday.

 A bunch of friends and I hiked up to the mountain ridge to view it high above the lake. Someone made a view finder out of beer boxes and duct tape. It totally worked. =)

We also had a pair of welding goggles we passed around. I tried taking a picture using the goggles as a filter, but it didn't capture the eclipse.

 Then I tried using my sunglasses as a filter. You can actually see 2 eclipses, one on either side of the actual eclipse (bright spot). One at 2 o'clock and an inverted one at 7 o'clock.

Here's a similar view with no filter.

It was a beautiful day and a fun evening of barbequing.
