2017 Travel Highlight:

A Journey Into Totality

Alan travels to Missouri to witness a total solar eclipse from the center line and visits Hannibal, Missouri, once the boyhood home of literary legend, Mark Twain.


"Casting Shadows"

Two pictures combined as one: A picture Alan took through his telescope of the total solar eclipse has been blended with a picture he took of a statue dedicated to Mark Twain by the state of Missouri; taken during sunrise.
