St Louis looked forward to the once-in-a-lifetime sunset eclipse. Placing the Gateway Arch and the Sun in the same frame involved finding an elevated position along a very narrow azimuth seven miles away in order for my telephoto lens to render both the same size. Despite the planning, clouds obscured the rare spectacle except for this brief 30-second window.
