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

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.

Of course, there's still a lot of other aspects of the game that I'd like to see improved. I was pleased that this year's Madden 17 implemented some items...
