“Let There Be Dark”

Tonight I went to an hour-long workshop on the upcoming total solar eclipse. Participants were shown (and helped with) how to make a simple solar filter for a camera lens. Mine will go on the 55–250mm zoom. I wish I had a better zoom lens, but that's the one I have right now.

This is Bob Baer of SIU's Department of Physics and solar eclipse chaser. He has co-chaired the university committee preparing the public and scientific activities for this year's total solar eclipse. » http://eclipse.siu.edu/
Not the most flattering shot — I'm sorry, Bob! — but I liked his t-shirt.

Incidentally, the path of solar eclipse totality will cross over Carbondale again April 2024.
