We traveled far from home to witness this eclipse, ending up in a field in Ucon, Idaho, with family and friends!

Conjunctions are always fun to see, and can be a great way to introduce friends and family to the wonders in the night sky.

This was a fun and magical event. My three daughters were young and they enjoyed watching the moon darken as the Earth's shadow overtook it.
