Here in Santa Barbara we observed approximately 50% totality at 11:11 a.m. (48-55% depending upon whom you ask.)

You can also see the large sunspot #3628 in my photo taken (above) with a Thousand Oaks Optical Solar Filter.

Nikon P1000. Using a filter but some times the camera does it’s own thing. I call these photo angels. No that is not a spot on my lens even though it looks like an ant.

I teach swimming at Los Banos for SBCC. A great place for viewing the eclipse!

Although we had only a partial solar eclipse, clear skies in Santa Barbara on April 8, 2024 made for a pleasant experience as recorded in my little partial video wherein 2+ hours is squeezed into about 1 minute.

The eclipse started shortly after 10:00am and completed at 12:30pm. Here are 5 attached stills in 25 minute intervals.
