I had a great first total eclipse experience. I've attached a sketch I made from memory after totality was over. I spent the whole 2 min 35 seconds we got studying.

Michael, Just beautiful! The corona looks so light and transparent. 
Is this black paper or an inverted sketch? I really like the technique.

It was drawn with a 2H pencil on white art paper in my sketch book, layered and then blended with a stump. I inverted it in GIMP.
