Did You See It?

Greetings loyal readers. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your humble doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

As many may know yesterday there was a solar eclipse in the United States. Since we live in New York State, we only saw a partial eclipse. It started to cloud up right when the eclipse started. But ghostwriter was very happy about that. You see, if you take a picture of the sun in the clear sky, it looks like this: 

The eclipse was already starting in that picture, and it just looked like a big ball of light. But after it started to cloud over, it looked like this:

See the sun in the lower left?

It looks like the crescent  moon.

You know what? The reason the sun looks like that is because the moon is passing in front of it. 

So I took the time to howl out a moon-phone message to my dearest Princess Leah and ask her if she would join me at the Blogville Barn Dance on September 22, hosted by our Mayor Arty. 

It's going to be super fun! 

Next, I have a special memorial picture made by Mr. Jack Freckles, Pipo, and their petcretary in honor of our dear departed friend Aiko, whom I spoke about in my last post.

 This has become a cherished tradition among the Blogville community.
Please visit MJF and his family at: MeezersMewsFrecklesWoofs

That's all for today.

I'll see you on Flower Friday!


  1. You have some pawsome pics of the eclipse! That reminds me that I need to ask my sweetie Emma about the barn dance.

  2. Those are cool pictures your mom took of the eclipse. We used a pin hole viewer and saw the same shape on the paper it was projected on. We can't wait for the next one in 2024 and hope we are still around for it.

  3. Wow!!! Those are some pawsome pictures of the eclipse, it was cloudy here, but i did get a bit darker outside!

    We can't wait to see you and the Princess at the dance!

  4. Petcretary thanks you for reaching out to Aiko's furmily.
    And you sure got some swell pictures of the eclipse!
    Not here...though petcretary use a pinhole camera she did manage to see that same kind of shape inside the box. She wished she had a smart phone so she could take pictures like yours...ad we too had those clouds. Maybe the same ones, BOL!!!

  5. Our peeps saw the eclipse! It was clear skies here and we were very close to totality
    Can't wait to see you and Princess Leah at the dance

  6. I would have loved to see the eclipse, but alas, no such thing here in Norway this time around. The photos your two-legger took were great though, the clouds really helped!

  8. No, dad hid us in the closet in case the eclipse came wif aliens....no comment please. mags

  9. WE watched in cross the US of A via the telly. It got really dark here in the house at about
    2:45 even though the sky was blue. Amazing....truly amazing.
    I know your Princess will be most honored to go to the barn dance with your. I bet the howl traveled extra fast on the day of the eclipse

  10. We watched the eclipse on TV, because it was so foggy and cloudy at our house that mommy couldn't even tell where the sun was supposed to be! It did get darker outside, though! Those are furrific photos, Chester!
