My uncle, Terry, took the best picture I’ve seen of an eclipse. Just wow!!!

Ted Hesser is with Tommy Van Smith and Martina Tibell at Smith Rock State Park, Oregon.

Best view in the house… it took 4 days of planning and hard work to capture this shot. My girlfriend @martinatib and good friend @thistommysmith climbed the route twice, in scorching heat, to nail the positioning. But we nailed it!

It’s the big day! Did you photograph the total solar eclipse? Share your photos with us in the comments below! (Photo: Eric Adams)

Best photo so far… Not sure anyone can top this one 😊
UPDATE 8/24/17
For the record, this isn’t an actual photograph. It’s an artist rendition of a solar eclipse that a friend of mine mine had posted on her FB page this past Monday morning.


Mindblowing shot from NASA
