Washington D.C. – Supreme Court & Smithsonian Air/Space Pictures

This week I am spending a few days touring Washington D.C. I know it is not Disney but I thought some may be interested so here are some cell-phone pictures from my trip.  To see all of my posts visit my 2017 Washington D.C. Summary Page.  This post features my afternoon which started off at the Supreme Court, then circled the U.S. Capitol as I headed for the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum to conclude my sightseeing day.

A classic picture of the U.S. Supreme Court as I approached the building.

The ground floor had movie playing and a small theater that played an overview video then I headed upstairs.
The Great Hall on the first floor.

The Court Room was closed for annual renovation/cleaning. So we did not get to see it.

After the Supreme Court I walked around the U.S. Capitol Building.

The Eclipse was underway and nearing the peak as we walked around. I did not have any glasses or filters so no pictures of it.. instead several of the Capitol as I walked around.

The other side of the Capitol.
Looking toward the Washington Monument.

Next stop the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.  I had the absolute worse timing.. arriving right about the peak of the eclipse.  So the entrance area was mobbed.

Moved up to the second floor to get a better view of the crowd.
The Wright Brothers & The Invention of the Aerial Age
Apollo to the Moon

Military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)
