Kris viewing the Solar Eclipse 8-21-2017
We viewed the eclipse at the base of the TVA fire tower at Grandview, TN (above Spring City). I was glad there was a concrete pad from an old building that I could set up my tripod on. We had to wear special eclipse glasses with strong filters to block the ultraviolet and sunlight to protect our eyes. I used a solar filter from my telescope to photograph the sun before totality.
