The Moon in Motion

Were you able to experience the total solar eclipse in 2017? Astrophotographer Phil Hart recorded that eclipse for those who couldn't be there. He used 12 remote-control cameras stationed across a wide area, and spent two years stitching the footage together.
The video features footage from 7 out of 12 cameras I had running on the day. Six were onsite at South Menan Butte, Idaho. The other two cameras were at remote locations established in the days leading up to the eclipse: Table Mountain, Wyoming looking over the Tetons and another in the foothils of the Beaverhead Mountains (south of Blue Dome) looking over the Snake River Plains of Idaho.
