This year has been an unusually active one for our planet. This image was taken by a friend of a friend, who used a lens filter in her I Phone to take this spectacular shot of the solar eclipse this summer. As the total eclipse passed over us and the atmosphere cooled, birds reportedly got very quiet and huddled in trees near house porch light where possible (in Beaverton, Oregon).
