Total eclipse, 21 August 2017

Taken on the line of "total eclipse" in southwestern North Carolina. Luckily, the day was clear (weather forecast said over 60% chance of cloudy rain) on 21 August 2017. Took many, liked this overexposure showing the edge of the moon reddened by the sun's light, with Jupiter to the left. First time I've shot an eclipse -- very moving sight and feeling.
