Last sunset before the eclipse

Post by MapleRidge »

Hi all...

Last day before the eclipse hete in Mazatlan and the cloud we had cleared out in time to catch the sunset over the ocean. Sandy snapped this one with her cell phone while I used the DSLR.

Good luck Brian! Clouds are supposed to clear out up here just as the eclipse starts…according to Astrospheric App! :?:

Hi Brian,

Excellent. No green flash?

I was a bit worried about your location but today the weather looks good over there for today. Maybe a bit of Cirrus ¿?

Good luck
