My dad and I drove up to Utah today (near Zion National Park) to try to get an optimal view of the solar eclipse. And boy did we have a good view!

I managed to snap the following pictures with my cell phone (by holding solar-filtered sunglasses up to the camera lense).

May 20, 2012 Eclipse (1) - Beginning
Beginning
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right.

May 20, 2012 Eclipse (2) - Half
Half
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

May 20, 2012 Eclipse (3) - Full
Full
One ring to rule them all, One ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

We also had my dad's 8" telescope set up with a solar filter on it as well, and got to see the eclipse and a few sunspots. Unfortunately, I didn't have the technical capability of getting photographs of those.

Sekiro may be FromSoft's first Souls-like with a truly exclusionary difficultySekiro may be FromSoft's first Souls-like with a truly exclusionary difficulty06/10/2019 I never got into Tenchu because the demos were too hard for younger me. Oh, boy, was this a tough game to play and review! Frequent readers should probably know that I'm a huge Souls-Borne fan -- to the point of writing strategies and lore analyses. Sekiro is a bit different, however. It's much further divorced from Dark Souls...

Emperor Edition brings Rome II out of "paid-for-beta", but doesn't solve Grand Campaign's scale problemsEmperor Edition brings Rome II out of "paid-for-beta", but doesn't solve Grand Campaign's scale problems08/07/2015 A couple years ago, I wrote an impressions post for Total War: Rome II with a tentative review score of 5 out of 10.
