Reader Betsy who hails from New Mexico sent in this incredible photo. Her text/commentary is below:
My sister-in-law, Kathleen, took this amazing photo from the deck of her husband’s office. She used her digital camera and a piece of car tinting material….as she states, “Just dumb luck” that it worked.
We, on the other hand, had just arrived home from a long weekend out of town. Although we could have viewed the eclipse from the sidewalk in front of our house, we were ill prepared to do so safely (no special glasses or time to make a box). We settled for watching the change of light/shadows while eating dinner on our sun porch. I then discovered we could watch the reflection of the changes in the very dirty westside window. This photo is of the moment it was total. Lucky I didn’t wash the windows last week as planned!
