You can see that Redding is right in the center of the best viewing of the Eclipse of 2012.
I was driving home from a visit with my mama and my sisters, when suddenly things started to get weird. I was getting cold. I NEVER get cold. I began to get darker and the shadows on the road were not as pronounced as they had been. A-HA!!
It was the eclipse! It had slipped my mind! I got these photos off of the internet. Hope nobody gets mad at me. I was driving and couldn't take any.
As I got closer to home I saw countless viewing parties!
I read in the Redding Searchlight that tons of people came here to get the best sightings. Good for our economy. I wonder if we can arrange one of these things every year!
