The Dragon Eats the Sun

The Dragon Eats the Sun
Some members of Mars Science Lab's camera team from Malin Space Science Systems took a break from rover operations training at Jet Propulsion lab to view the solar eclipse from Santa Monica Beach. The dragon boat ride was arcing up trying to take a bite out of the sun as it set over the Pacific. When clouds blew in front of the sun, people were able to see the eclipse without solar filters.
