Solar eclipse draws spectators to Baldy

From right, Beatrix Dalton, 20, and her brother Lucis Dalton, 16, of Connecticut, lay out a white sheet in hopes of seeing shadow bands during a total solar eclipse over Bald Mountain Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, in Sun Valley, Idaho. Their mother, Heidi Hammel, vice president of The Planetary Society and AURA, said “We came from all over the world — 150 of us — to enjoy totality,” said Hammel, whose organization is the largest public advocacy group for space and exploration. “We wanted to celebrate the sun, we wanted to celebrate us, we wanted to celebrate science and we wanted to celebrate astronomy. And what a day we have had!”
