See the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse - Greetings from Wyoming!

August 21, 2017
A roadside pull out on the Wind River Reservation.
Clouds stream by, covering the sun... did we pick the wrong spot?
First Contact:
Kind of Cloudy
The temperature begins to drop
The morning birds become quieter.
The sky clears!

Darkness slides over the road and the nearby farm.

Crickets start to chirp - extreme shadows!

A few seconds before totality! 
Bailey's beads!
Diamond ring!

Second Contact:
Third Contact:
Diamond ring again!
  Darkness peels away and the sun hits you like a hammer.
A rooster crows restarting his day....
