The moment of total eclipse as seen in Idaho and captured by photographer Alex Strohl. Accrding to the photographer, he spent a good chunk of the morning sitting in a meadow, waiting for it to happen. The two minutes where it got completely dark were surreal to say the least. The birds quieted, the sky over the valley below was sunset orange.
