A big Oklahoma thanks to Jessica Eitzen of Woodward for submitting a photo of yesterday’s solar eclipse. Millions of people from Asia to the western U.S. watched the eclipse that was dubbed ‘the ring of fire’. The sun went down before the moon centered on it in Oklahoma so we didn’t get the ring, but Jessica still captured an awesome natural phenomenon. She said she didn’t realize we would be able to see it in Oklahoma, but came out of WalMart and there it was. Fortunately she had her camera with her and started shooting. You can see more beautiful photos of the eclipse on Jessica’s flickr stream at http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdawn82/7239028844/ . Click on photo to enlarge.
If you see an unusual, particularly beautiful, or interesting glimpse of Oklahoma nature, please share it with us here on the Oklahoma Nature Blog.
