It was pretty cool to see it live!

I got to see it about 10 minutes before 3:37, when the max 80% coverage for this area was supposed to occur.

The clouds were covering it at 3:37.

Then I got to see it about 10 minutes after that.

It didn't get as dark outside as I thought it would, though.

Not my first. But still as cool as before.

Birds got really quiet here. Didn't expect that with partial. Got some eery photos. Both smart device cameras still functioning. I can see to type this. So it's all good.

I'm really glad I stumbled on the NASA stream. Very well done. Even captured video of the space station passing in front of the eclipse, and had an interviews with space station crew, and other assorted sciency types. It was like watching Game Day, only with nerds.

Watched 93% here. Got a little dark but still plenty of light out. The crickets started to chirp and the birds went quiet. I was surprised that I noticed the air in the breeze seemed to cool down a little bit by the time we got to 93%. The cell phone camera still works. Took some direct picture but all I can see is the sun. Some folks took pictures through the eclipse glasses which came out.

One final word from me on this. A public service announcement from The Guardian.

How to Tell if You Damaged Your Eyes During the Eclipse

Cheers!

Ha ha, I can't read that page and I didn't even look at the sun without the glasses, only their other pages. But I did just now see that picture of Trump staring at the sun flash by on the TV.

Well this was the best I could get. I tried a bunch of different methods, tough shooting!

I didn't have glasses, or look at the sun without them, I just stood outside with my back to the sun. I leave in a pretty green area and the 'lighting' of things looked pretty neat. The biggest thing I noticed is how it wasn't nearly as hot standing in the sun. Cooled down significantly even though there wasn't a breeze where I was.
