I missed it, gosh darn it! (sorry for the strong language)

Stupid clouds obscured the sun near sunset. I know they were stupid, I heard them going "duh." Or maybe it was "rumble."

I glanced onto the sun a couple of times quickly and I could see the coverage but there would be no way to stare for any length of time. So it made the hole in the card board trick absolutely necessarily. But it totally losses something in the translation.

Stunning annular eclipse footage

Quote:
CNET cameraman Jared Kohler captures portions of the ring-of-fire phenomenon, the first annular eclipse in almost two decades, from outside his Moss Beach home in Northern California. The camera used to capture this footage is a Panasonic HDX900 professional broadcast camera shooting at 720 60p. The lens is a HD Fujinon TV zoom lens with 2x extender and the neutral density filter-wheel was set to ND 1/64. The iris controls were set to manual as the changes in cloud cover facilitated rapid f-stop adjustments.

Hey I think Jared just stole my excellent footage and stills shots and added some clouds for effects!
I used a small USPS priority mail box and used an xacto blade to put a hole in it and a white sheet of copy paper.
