    I know you're an astrologer and you teach all of that stuff at the university, so you are way ahead of me.:D

    I took these in 2017 using solar film over a telephoto lens on my cell phone. I was in the driveway and besides it being hotter than blazes, it was really hard to hold the phone still enough to get some shots of it. this was as total as it got here in Virginia. I will have to get some more of the film for my spotter scope just to see if I can see sunspots in white light.

    Also, what zodiac sign should the sun be in to get the best view?;):)
