High Altitude Eclipse – Digital Illustration

It’s getting hard to contain my excitement for the Great American Solar Eclipse. The first total eclipse visible from coast to coast in over a century. I’ve been fascinated by some images showing the eclipse from a high altitude. I’ve seen several mocked up images, that don’t seem to correctly show the event. Above is my illustration based a few reference photos. I have also placed the planets that may also be visible during the brief moment of totality. Below is a time lapse video of the drawing. I may update this illustration after the eclipse on August 21.
