So, I went with my family to an area that was able to view 100% totality today, and we met a stranger with a telescope, and a camera. He shared, and so I thought that I would as well. This is a shot taken sometime during the 2 minute period of totality when the viewer can actually observe the eclipse with the naked eye, and occurs when the sun has been completely shut out (100%).

Enjoy :)
