The Eclipse is almost here!

These are the photos of the moments leading up to the eclipse, thankfully I had my fancy camera all set up and there are a few cool things to see in the preview pictures!  The fun part was we got to watch the eclipse from a cemetery!

The sun is going away...
Clouds occasionally obscured things...
 But the sun is getting thinner and thinner.
 Thinner...
 Thinner...
 Just a sliver....
 Thinner...
 The sliver starts getting shorter...
 And shorter...  It should be noted that if you looked at the sun, although it was getting dimmer, it still felt like almost full sunshine, despite it being 99% obscured.
 You may notice that the ends of the suns arc are separated into little dots as the light streams through canyons on the moon edge.
 A few more dots, almost gone...
