Did you see it?

We observed the partial solar eclipse this evening around 6:30pm from Muir Beach, California. 

All you can see through the eclipse glasses is the sun.  Without these you can cause significant permanent damage to the eye when looking at the sun.

This picture was taken of the eclipse as it was waning through one of the glasses lenses.
We enjoyed the cool shapes of the pinhole images.  Usually, its just the "regular old" circle shape of the sun.  Today with the partial eclipse, the images were crescent shaped.

 That is Eli's shadow with a bunch of pinhole images around his fingers and through the webbing of the lawn furniture he was standing next to.
