65 Minutes from First Contact Corvallis Oregon

Student Legacy Park was the official site of the eclipse party at Oregon State University. Things were already buzzing by the time we arrived at 8am to secure a place on the astroturf field.

The field was covered with umbrafiles, the self proclaimed label for eclipse chasers. I could tell there were seasoned viewers and newbies alike.

At 8am I took this shot of the Sun before all the action took place. You can see the two sunspots that were present. AR2671 was there mid-week in Victoria and AR2672 was just coming around the limb this morning.
