Great American Eclipse Diamond Ring

We traveled by train across the country from NJ to St. Louis, MO. to see the Great American Eclipse. While there, we used the weather as our guide and headed South to Farmington, MO, where the totality lasted around 2 minutes, 40 seconds. At the end of the totality, we captured this photo with the diamond ring and a few clear solar flares!
