I'm sorry for turning off the sun for a few minutes today. (Oh, and you thought I couldn't do it!)

But the people here at iRV2 deserve all the sunshine they want. What a nice group of people you are!

This was about 20 minutes after the max eclipse in Ellijay, GA.
The speck in the upper right of the picture is a bird making a dive. If you zoom in close enough you can see the mosquito he's going after.

Save your glasses, 2024 the next one crosses over me. You can reserve your chair on my deck now for a small fee!

To be safe, I think you need to leave them on until August 13, 2045...
