All Ready.....

....For the Big Event Monday!

Just a bit of humor as I 'drone' on about the upcoming eclipse... My neighbor stopped by today with a couple pairs of eclipse glasses - and yes, she got the good ones (ISO 12312-12 NASA - Approved)! After both of us just having cataract surgery, we're not taking any chances.

I'm hoping to have both the Inspire and the Mavic in the air to try and catch the shadow sweeping across the landscape. The drones will not be looking at the eclipse itself as it will be too high in the sky for their cameras to tilt up to see. My house sits about 3 blocks into the path of totality, so I'll have about 22 seconds to try and get a shot of the corona. I could drive a little bit north, but I don't relish the thought of fighting the traffic. They're expecting the population of St. Joseph, Mo. (which is about an hour north of me) to double over this weekend.
