Amazing 360-degree video of total solar eclipse 2020 December 14

The following video was taken by an amateur astronomer in Argentina with a Ricoh Theta Z1 camera:

Use your mouse to scroll around 360 degrees, including up at the eclipsed sun in the sky and down to the tripod holding the camera.
Amazing! Fabulous detail, considering the camera!

Last one for us was worth the 300 mile drive. Arrived and was shocked to see a sky blanketed with thick puffy cumulus clouds. Then as the eclipse just began, the lack of solar energy deflated the clouds like magic. Poof! The sky was clear. After the eclipse, as we drove to our motel, the sun was at full power and moisture in the atmosphere again was heated to its former state of cloud cover. This was near the Smoky Mountains in summer.

Cool video. Brings back memories - this was taken with a Pentax Q + P/K adapter + 55-300mm DA kit zoom:

Worth the effort to go see one.
