Partial Solar Eclipse from Mikisew Provincial Park, Ontario Canada

Several dozen (36 counted for sure, maybe as  many as 48 - unlikely to have been 60) campers joined Vicki and me "on the beach" to observe the prelude to the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse

This is what SOHO, the solar space observatory

saw this morning.
And this afternoon I photographed this - in  front of witnesses!

That I think is "pretty cool" even if I have to say so myself - blog!

And for something even cooler - from the ISS and photographed by Expedition 52 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin:

It must be true!
