The 2017 Solar Eclipse From Newark, Ohio

Newark, Ohio Solar Eclipse

It started with some cloud cover that soon cleared.

And a clear shot came to view.

I shot this photo using  a Canon T5i , 55-250mm Canon lens, and a #10 Welding Glass.

What Was The Solar Eclipse Like?

This isn’t a post for reader today. It’s a post for many years down the road when I’m contemplating viewing the next solar eclipse.

The eclipse was interesting. That’s about it really. It’s alarming to know that we’re on a big rock spinning through space. It’s alarming to know that there is a degree of precision in the celestial objects that allows for an eclipse to happen – predictably.

When I see something like this, it makes me very aware that there is a creator. The precision of the size of the sun and moon in distance and size is perfect. The timing is perfect. We can tell exactly where and when the next one will be 7 years from now. It’s watch-like precision, only on a galactic scale. A large group of people would have us ignore that and tell us that these wonders all just happened by chance.

It was interesting to see chemtrails spreading in this pattern with a moon shining in the daylight. It makes you wonder many things. Why does the cloud spread with a pattern of a sound wave spreading style?

I give up calling them “contrails”. The conspiracy theorists are right. They are not just condensation, they are a mix of chemicals. I don’t know what the chemicals are or their toxicity level, but it’s not just water vapor.

I’ll always ask why when I see something like this. I’m not afraid to admit the things I don’t know. I am afraid to just accept the answers given without looking further into the subject. I can also appreciate the beauty of things I don’t understand.  I hope others do too.
