On August 21, 2017 Madison County, Florida was treated to a solar eclipse that blocked about 86% of the light from the sun around 2:43 PM. Even though there were clouds moving through there was plenty of clear sky to safely observe the diminishing orb of light as the moon passed between the sun and earth. The photos show the constructed cereal box pinhole observation device that allowed safe viewing without solar glasses. Then the glasses arrived and were used as a solar filter for the camera to capture a more defined sun with the moon just past the point of highest light blocking. The photos were taken at a home on Moseley Hall Road in southwestern Madison County.
