I did NOT bother to get a special eclipse filter. I was not that motivated. I was going to leave that to the professionals.


Filter That I Used — Nature’s Own.

Reflection of the Sun in water I poured into a wheelbarrow.

I waited for the water to settle and then used an EV between -1 and -2.


Reflections of the Eclipse.

This was when the water was rippling.


It was cool. We only got to see a partial, but even that was memorable. First for the kids.

I did see the Solar Eclipse of May 10, 1994 over New Hampshire.

I had got 5 eclipse glasses from Amazon and that worked out.

Tomorrow’s Eclipse Over New Hampshire: We Will Have SOME Clouds.

by Anura Guruge

Forecast from wunderground.com.


It will start at 1:27pm and end at 3:57pm.

So a 2.5 hour show with maximum coverage, i.e., 62%, at 2:45pm.

So we might still be OK. A few clouds shouldn’t be a huge damper.

So, if tomorrow, Monday, August 21, 2017 you start wondering as to when you might have seen another Solar Eclipse, over NEW ENGLAND, it would have been on Tuesday, May 10, 1994.

I remember it. I watched it from New Ipswich, New Hampshire. It was NOT a total solar eclipse.

We in New England did NOT see the May 20, 2012 solar eclipse. So, if you hear folks going on about the 2012 eclipse don’t feel bad. It never reached New England.

Again remember what you will be watching is the MOON passing across the face of the Sun. Not some shadow. Got that?

New Hampshire 2017 Foliage Has Kicked In — Saturday, August 19.

The top picture was from Saturday, August 19, 2017. It got my eye during my morning run up/down Prospect Mountain (Alton) and I went out, late in the evening, to take a picture — along with what proved to be an amazing, fiery sunset.

The three leaves are from today, Sunday, August 20, 2017. I did the same run. Couldn’t believe that I was running into fallen red leaves on the ground already. I picked a few up on the way down. I had no trouble finding them.

I initially thought that this was exceptionally early. I then checked my posts from last year. I have pictures from August 24, 2016 and even one from July 31, 2016.

I will keep you posted given that this is really the HOME of New Hampshire foliage.
