Great American Eclipse composite – 16″ x 24″ – Aluminum

Photographer: Kevin Boucher

This is an 16 x 24″ picture on aluminum with a float mount (shown in picture) for easy wall hanging.

On Monday August 21st 2017 a total eclipse of the Sun occurred within a 65 mile wide stretch of land starting in Oregon then crossing the whole contiguous United States and exiting over the Atlantic in South Carolina. The last time a total solar eclipse crossed the whole width of the contiguous United States occurred June 8th 1918. This amazing composite photograph was created of the partial and total phases of the eclipse with the background showing the Grand Tetons in Wyoming highlighted by the distant sunlight outside of the moons Penumbra from our shooting location in Driggs Idaho.
