Much of the country was swept up in the 2017 Solar Eclipse earlier this week and Westglow was no exception! Everyone on property was prepared with eclipse glasses and our Graphic Designer even purchased a special lens for our camera. In fact, the entire of town of Blowing Rock was ready to make the most of this amazing event and our local Chamber of Commerce had a “Dark in the Park” event with Moon Pies, Sun Chips, and all thing eclipse related.
Unfortunately, clouds rolled in leading up to the peak moment of the eclipse and we were all a little worried we would miss the fantastic view. Thankfully our fears were alleviated when we realized our glasses were strong enough to see through thin clouds and our special lens captured several fantastic shots! In all, the day was incredibly memorable and we hope everyone caught a glimpse of that unforgettable event.
