I watched the total solar eclipse from Rocheport, Missouri. Strange things happened during the total solar eclipse. It was supposed to be sunny with clear sky, but thick grey clouds rolled over right at the peak moment. My camera was responding to the infrared remote until that moment; it made a groaning sound and stopped working. During this time, the clouds would thin out because of the wind and I had glimpses of the total eclipse. After the totality was over, clouds cleared and my camera began to respond to the remote. Weird, but interesting.
