Figured better late than never to post my pictures/video/writeup of the solar eclipse as seen in Tryon, Nebraska - full writeup there with more pictures and words.

We camped overnight at on 40 acres of farmland 10 miles South of Tryon which has a population of 156. So we were kind of in the middle of nowhere in gorgeous country with super friendly family that hosted another dozen or so campers.






Wife and I drove into Tryon the afternoon/evening before






The town did a GREAT job rolling out the red carpet for the visitors - even had a FREE Uber Service! ;-)






The weather forecast has worsened on Sunday with fog predicted overnight. So while we saw a lot of stars before going to bed, here's what we woke up to in the morning. I was using my flashlight as a "Jedi-Light-Saber" to cut up the fog ... and it did clear as forecast by 10'ish.






Stupid Geek tricks include a Monocular and colander












Here's my shot of the eclipsed sun ... which was white to the visible eye (and at daylight color temperature of 5500K - what a surprise!), but I decided to put it on "fire" and boosted the color temperature in lightroom when I processed the RAW file.






I also got a nifty video shot at constant exposure showing before/during/after totality



Pics/video are cool ... but it was 100X in real-life ... neat experience. Highly recommended if you haven't seen one - US folks should start planning for 2024! ;-)

I was in Nashville for this. Once ina lifetime ( my be two or three) experience. I did a timelapse of the sequence and need to find time to edit 2000 pics.
Thanks for sharing this . Video is great.
