August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse Viewing

August 21, 2017 Solar eclipse viewing was one of the most anticipated events this year in United States history. The Science World was in a buzz, and the media promised a good wealth of coverage. A lot of people have traveled far and wide, to experience this natural phenomenon and view it at the utmost opportune site and time.  Although this happened two weeks ago, who can forget a once in a lifetime event such as this one?

While watching a special report on Television, I remember using a medical X-Ray film viewing the solar eclipse back in March 18th 1988 in the Philippines. Fortunately, I had some medical X-Ray films tucked away in my home office so I hurriedly took two (2) slides of X-Ray films and taped it together on to my cellular phone’s camera lens. The following shots were produced as I view it through the viewing screen of my cell phone.

After these photos were taken, I thought why not see what it looks like with just one (1) X-Ray film?

Well, that didn’t look too good so why not shoot a video, and take this experiment on to the next level, while the newscasters are commenting in the background?

Hope this compilation of photos and video footage (although short) of the partial Solar Eclipse here in Reno, Nevada has been useful and enjoyable for your viewing.
