Perfect Solar View

Hale Eclipse 1 Hale Eclipse 2 Hale Eclipse 3 Hale Eclipse 4 Hale Eclipse WaltersOn Sunday, Aug. 20 Walter Hale Sr. and Water Hale, Jr set up their camera to get pictures of the upcoming solar eclipse. The duo went to B&H Photo on the internet to get the right settings. Walter Jr. took the camera up to Gallatin, and spent the day taking more than 1,100 pictures. Meanwhile most Millington residents tried to view the Aug. 21 solar eclipse from their homes, schools or places of work had limited success.
This was the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979. Millington and West Tennessee was able to see a partial eclipse. The cloudy day did prevent most people in the Memphis area from seeing the eclipse at the peak around 1:20 p.m.
