    Eclipse - iPhone telescope photo


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Spanky7 woke his 11-year-old son up early on November 3 to go see the eclipse in Chesterfield, Virginia. 'He didn't want to get out of bed. But once he got dressed and was looking through the telescope, he thought it was really cool,' he said. They drove onto an access road in between a local grocery store and gym in order to get a clear few of the horizon to see the sunrise. There were other families outside as well, and they took turns looking through the telescope he set up with a solar filter.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer
