    We live in the path of the Totality for today's eclipse, and it was amazing--and I mean AMAZING--to see the Totality with its corona. The world dark and suddenly 10 degrees cooler, and the dogs silent--for once . Like the one I saw in 1979, it's something I'll never forget. That big black ball in the sky, with its crown of light, and the "diamond" both coming and going. It was huge. It was Awe-Inspiring. It was the memory of a lifetime. And I got a photo of it . Not a great photo, mind you. I was just using my cell phone. But still, it was better than nothing, right? So here ya are, in case you missed it in person!

    Not sure why the images are so small. I uploaded them with the largest side at 900 pixels. Sorry they look so small, here.

    When you click on your images, they are a little larger.

    To insert large pics, I "think" you need to post the url and insert that in the Image icon, 15 icons to the right in the icons above next to the "ladder" icon for videos.

    Now there's an explanation that's sure to confuse me! LOL! Anyway, when I uploaded the puppy pix, and you click on the thumbnails, the photos are the 900xWhatever size, and I uploaded both sets of photos the exact same way. Dog knows why one set is different from the other .

    Tried your way. No difference. Oh well! C'est la vie.
