Aug. 21 solar eclipse
As of Monday, August 21, 2017
Hood River News invites readers to submit photos along with a short description.
Pam Sanchez sent in the first Eclipse Experience message, copied from Snapchat, at 11:48 a.m.: “Me and my girls watched the eclipse from our back porch in Mosier.”
Judy Hanson of Mt. Hood at 1:16 p.m. provided eclipse viewing photos as well as several depicting the solar phenomenon.
Jeremy Davis: “Space and science nerds unite … viewing the solar eclipse with the kiddos in our Hood River cul-de-sac with some of our neighbors.”
Rountree Rouse: “We went to Spray this morning and I managed to get this shot. Handheld with my Nikon and 400VR lens. Luck.”
