August 21, 2017: The sun and moon come into conjunction and create a total solar eclipse across the United States; the first time in 99 years.
Because of bad weather, we called off a long ago planned trip to Missouri to photograph this year’s eclipse. But, we weren’t going to miss this opportunity; scouting and finding locations in Houston to obtain the best images. The remarkable event didn’t disappoint as we were able to capture the eclipse as it traversed the Houston sky, catching a series of shots showing the progression of the moon crossing in front of the sun. Later, local NBC affiliate, KPRC, aired the stunning images during the 10 PM news broadcast. The exciting event has us looking forward to the next eclipse, due April 8, 2024. We’re already checking out locations and settings, getting ready for another display of lunar grandeur.
