The Great American Eclipse of 2017
So the real reason I upgraded my camera was to document this crazy great celestial convergence. I got the phot Gear I needed. I booked a flight to the closest major airport that would be under the total eclipse. And in one day was there and back again through Nashville. And boy what an awe struck moment, to see the sun disappear and hundreds of people around be stare up and see nature breaking its own rules.
Ups: Overwhelming beauty
Downs: So much air congestion as to shut down an entire ATC system and cause a almost four delay to getting home.
