Here's a time-lapse video of the 2017 solar eclipse from Target Field

It was a little cloudy, but we still captured a pretty sweet video.

It may have been cloudy, but we still got a pretty good video of the partial solar eclipse from Target Field. 

Here's a time-lapse video we took from about 11:30 a.m. until 1:20 p.m.:

The peak partial eclipse was at 1:06 p.m. in the Twin Cities, with the National Weather Service reporting crickets were chirping because they thought it was evening.

We used a DIY camera filter made out of a DVD to capture the eclipse.
