Partial solar eclipse timelapse in MN

The clouds made it difficult, but FOX 9's cameras were able to catch a glimpse of Saturday's 'ring of fire' solar eclipse. In Minnesota, we only got to see a partial eclipse -- and that was mostly obstructed by clouds. Even then it was a Goldilocks experiment: When the clouds were too thin, the sun washed out the picture. And, of course, when the clouds were too thick, you couldn't see the sun. Thanks to FOX 9 engineer Ricky Dressler, who was working the camera for the eclipse.
