These are some indirect pictures of the shadow of the moon and the sun reflected through the leaves.  This was about the time of the maximum extent of the eclipse here in  Cleveland.

Where am I traveling?

July 12, 2017

 

What a terrific project. I know intellectually that we are traveling all the way around the sun every year.  I am still stunned when I visualize the actual process – of being 93 million miles away from the sun on a trip that annually covers 584 million miles at a speed of about 67,000 miles per hour.
