Our hotel was within 1000 yards on the center of the eclipse so we watched it from the back parking lot. As I did not have the needed filter to photograph the sun directly I wanted a location that had trees that would allow pin points of light to come through the leaves. The pinpoints of light will then focus the sun on anything behind such as a friends car. The middle photo shows the eclipse before it was centered and the bottom photo with the moon centered on the sun. This was anular eclipse as the moon was too far from earth to cover the sun as in a total eclipse. This anular eclipse covered 96% of the sun.
