total eclipse of the sun

I hiked up to the Griffith Park Observatory yesterday to witness the solar eclipse via live video from an island near Shanghai. I arrived after the total eclipse had happened, so while there is still a live feed here, clouds - or something - had obscured the view. Note the blank screen beyond the planets in the Gunther Depths of Space.
