Total Solar Eclipse 21 August 2017 St. Louis, Missouri, US – photos by Seth Nehrbass, Patent Attorney

 

These are some of the better photos I took on Monday, 21 August 2017, in St. Louis, Missouri (with a Sony DSC-HX300 camera with a 50 power optical zoom, using a home-made solar filter for all photos but the total eclipse).

Many thanks to Harry and Genie Mueller for providing room, board, transportation, and entertainment during our visit.
