Been stepping out checking the progress. Also cloudy now. So can't see anything now that it is totaled.

Crisp and clear here. The view is excellent.

It wasn't total here but I got to show my 2 oldest granddaughters something they'd never seen before--nice teaching moment.

Well, I took pictures but they didn't come out well at all, I guess when they suggest you steady the camera you should actually steady the camera!  Wink  I was happy to even be able to see it, they had predicted clouds, all we had were occasional high thins.

We watched the eclipse, but the real "star" of the show for us was Saturn!!  I don't think I've ever seen the rings before, and through our cheapo telescope they were easy to see. 

It was a bit too frigid outside to really enjoy it, though....

Looked beautiful from where I live.  Got nice and red, then disappeared almost instantly!
One of the nice things about having a laptop is I just set myself up outside with a warm jacket and talked to people on chat while watching the eclipse.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Ooooh, that was a beautiful night, we watched the eclipse, the night was cool, but not overly cold.  I also watched it as it came out of the shadow of the earth, that was just as beautiful.  I took some pictures with my camera on "twilight", turned out kind of OK, I think that you can kind of see a sliver of the moon or something.  It was a lovely sight to see that beautiful red glow of the moon when the moon was shadowed, loved it.....have a beautiful and wonderfully awesome day, Cindi
