It's august 21st 2017 the day of the total solar eclipse. I'm in Madras, Oregon
the skies are clear
My sky tracker. It's meant to move the camera with the sky so it
Compensates for the Earth's rotation that should help me keep the sun in shot as the eclipse is taking place
We have first contact this is C1. You just see the moon entering on the top right side
We are 17 minutes out from totality and I think the light is starting to change. I think it's getting noticeably dimmer
There's a bit of like a cold wind coming in from this side. Can you guys feel it?
It's getting kind of cool, and it's getting darker. I'm really excited
Now that the sun is about 90 percent covered. I'm seeing much sharper shadows.
Normally shadows, They're a little bit fuzzy because the light from the sun is coming from a whole bunch of locations.
But now because it's coming from basically one little sliver of the sun the shadows are all getting very.
very sharp, oh.
my God, oh.
my God, ah.
Look around the treasure. This is insane right now. Oh.
This is just unbelievable,
What is happening? This is absolutely insane like it's like- the breeze.
Oh my God, this is totally creepy. Oh!
My goodness, this is weird. Oh!
There's like sunset - sunrise every direction people are going nuts!
This I did not expect. I don't know what I expected, but... Oh my God!
This, just looks so wrong.
You can see these prominences the solar Corona coming out at the top left and right at the bottom I
I can see Venus directly above me.
What is this?
What? I just don't even know?!
We are inside Totality.
I just, I am kinda speechless.
Hey, it is. Just unreal right now
It's totally nuts
*Background* It's like a hole in the sky!
*Loud cheering* (as diamond ring effect appears)
Our excitement is that the sun is back.
Gonna pop the solar filter back on.
