Chased the sun most of the day but there were enough breaks in the clouds to capture the solar eclipse and the massive
sunspot AR2192. You could view the eclipse through the clouds. These images were taken with a Meade AR6 refractor,
a Nikon D3000 DSLR, a Thousand Oaks Glass (type2) solar filter.

My husband works at Vigor on Harbor Island. This double rainbow was directly over downtown Seattle, but these buildings were in the way. Still makes a pretty cool picture.
