    Eclipse

    The Solar Eclipse is about 50% at this moment here on the West Coast. Looking a lot like sunset right now. Not sure what the big deal is....thousands driving to view points to watch it.

    Did you see the solar eclipse? Did you see it in totality?

    Wow, in Olympia you should have had about a 95% eclipse at about 10:25 AM. Are you sure it was only 50% (perhaps you were looking too early)? My sister from Anacortes is camping in Idaho in an area where it should be 98%. Waiting to see her photos.

    Here in San Diego we had a 58% at about 10:30 AM, but it was still very cool viewed with the special glasses. The clouds cleared up from our usual morning overcast just in time. Went to an eclipse brunch and viewing which was a great way to do the viewing.

    Actually, that is not the case. There will be another in 2024. https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/future/

    I could have sworn I saw the end of the world approaching! Scary I tell you.

    We had some fairly ideal overcast/clouds for great viewing with no glasses. Pretty neat seeing the moon travel over. I think we were around 85% coverage around here.

    By the time I came online and posted it was more than 50%. Started to get a charlie horse in my neck so I gave my glasses to another. Kept waiting for it to go dark but it didn't get close. More like a couple weeks ago when the air was smokey from all the fires. Except it is a cloudless bluebird day. Surprised the temp dropped around 15 degrees for a half hour.

    Andy, you crack me up. I love it. I always get a laugh from your quips and zingers.

    Ha, I noticed the temperature drop also, lol. Pretty neat. I had a sheet of paper and binoculars to project the eclipse for when it was too bright, which worked, but the neatest was the clouds tempering the light for ideal viewing
