Surprisingly, animals are smarter than humans. They know not to look into the bright lights

Good weather here in central Florida.  It was fun.  Big group on campus enjoying the event.  Only a bit over 80% partial here, but still noticeable dimming and cooling, and the view through the glasses was cool.

We had 99.1% here in my backyard, it was pretty cool to watch through the glasses. It didn't get full on dark but it did darken some, like it was dusk. It got surprisingly colder quickly as it progressed! Glad I had the glasses to watch all the way through.

Something as profound as an eclipse deserves an equally profound song.

We drove from Minnesota to western Nebraska. And we had 2 min 30 sec in totality in cloudless skies.

 

I waited for this for 38 years since I saw a partial eclipse from Salt Lake City as a kid.

 

I've read countless accounts of the experience. I'd seen the photos, seen the videos.

 

I spent the last two weeks obsessing over weather models and maps. The drive to the final location involved dodging clouds in southern Nebraska and considerable anxiety.

 

All that being said, when the moment of totality hit, I was not 0.001% prepared for what I saw.

 

It doesn't look like the photos.

 

I cried like a baby.

 

Get to the nest eclipse you can. See Totality. Do it as if your life depended on it.

 

Hello everyone.

The hordes never showed, and no massive traffic jams. I went a couple days early to my spot on the Deschutes River and was the 1st car there, got the best shadiest spot on the river(this is the desert, we're talkin'). The fishin' was slow, but did catch a beautiful 17" redsides, along with a few smaller trout. The campground eventually filled about half-way, while 15 mi. away thousands filled up an open field...oh, and totality was pretty damn special!!! Glad I took the time...
