Cedar City Annular Eclipse Before Maximum

Cedar City Annular Eclipse Before Maximum

I arrived at Cedar Middle School not far from where I was staying packing my Pronto refractor which has been with me most of my time in astronomy. At 6pm many eclipse gazers had already started gathering with their eclipse glasses in hand. I positioned myself on the sidewalk where I had a clear view of the horizon line and waited for the moment! During the eclipse I shared views through the Pronto with a couple from Salt Lake City, Susan and Eric who I had met the day before. The occasional bright-eyed kid showed up too. I traded time between afocally imaging the eclipse and viewing through the refractor.
