From Geneva Nebraska, clouds were present all day. However, several minutes before totality, a clear blue patch of sky moved overhead and allowed an unobstructed view of the showcased event. Then, as the sun began emerging from behind the moon, and the clouds drifted back in, the TV85 / 6D combo caught this stunning shot.
