A Very Nice Shot by Andy Allen seen from the rose garden lawn
at the Santa Barbara Mission. He took pictures every ten minutes though a solar
filter, and then a couple unfiltered pictures just after sunset.
The camera was stationary (on a tripod) with the same lens the whole time, so
although it's a composite image, the scale and positions of everything are real.

August 21, 2017 will be spectacularly Total Solar
Eclipse visible across
to millions of people across the United States. This will
be an impressive total eclipse, lasting over 2½ minutes
at maximum and visible over a path up to 115 km wide.
The path starts in the Pacific well north of Hawaii
at 16:48:33 UT, and then crosses to make landfall in the
U.S. in the northern half of Oregon. It then crosses
Idaho, Wyoming, and Nebraska, and clips the north-east
corner of Kansas before passing right over Missouri. It
cuts over the southern tip of Illinois and the western
end of Kentucky, then crosses Tennessee and the western
tip of North Carolina; the extreme north-east corner of
Georgia will also be in the path of totality.
Finally, the total eclipse crosses South Carolina and
passes into the Atlantic, where it runs south-east into
the tropics and finally ends over open ocean at 20:02:30
The partial eclipse will be visible over the whole of
North America, Central America, and the northern part of
South America, between 15:46:48 UT and 21:04:20 UT. It
will also just be visible in Britain and extreme western
Europe at sunset.
