Eclipse photo. I caught some solar flares. I through they were chromatic abortions at first due to the small sensor and long zoom of my camera.

The best part is that I got to watch the eclipse with my Grandmother.

@QOTO Is this instance blocking I don't care one way or another, but I've noticed some people asking. Thanks.

No need to paraphrase. First paragraph says it all:

"Claims that artificial intelligence will help solve the climate crisis are misguided, with the technology instead likely cause rising energy use and turbocharge the spread of climate disinformation, a coalition of environmental groups has warned."

Apple: “Sure thing”

China: “…and podcast apps”
