Total Solar Eclipse 2017 — photo 7 of 17: My cousin Jeff (right) — who drove 1,000 miles from Fallbrook, California to view the total solar eclipse — and me Skyping in my backyard on an iPad 2 with my mom (his aunt) in California, shortly before the eclipse started on August 21, 2017 in Albany, Oregon. The matching hats were a surprise and complete coincidence! From the looks of it we could be brothers. Picture by my wife, Catherine. Camera used: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V.
