Like so many other photographers, my lifelong dream has been to have a photo published in National Geographic. So far this is as close as I've come. My photo of the recent annular solar eclipse in northern California has been picked up by the National Geographic website. You can see it here:

Very cool Randall. Did you plan this location and composition knowing the track of the eclipse ahead of time?

Yes, I got all the detailed information from NASA's Eclipse website, and mapped it out carefully. The difficult part was finding a specific location where everything lined up and was not obscured by the tall pines that cover that area. After hours of hunting I found a meadow about a half mile off the main road.
