Total Eclipse

Post by deathisgain on Mon Aug 21, 2017 11:49 am

So anyone here in the path of the total eclipse? We are sitting around 99%. North Georgia is going to be swamped with people where the totality is going to be. I'm staying put.

Everyone around here went up to Oregon to get the 100%.  It's so foggy right now that unless it burns away real quick [unlikely], nobody around here will get to see anything!  I think it'd be neat to see, but I also don't particularly care a whole ton haha.

I just went outside with some special glasses on and took a look. It's about 15% at the moment.

About 80% here so no total darkness. Overcast but will go outside and see anyway (without looking up). I remember another one, prob 1979 when we loved in Michigan. Couldn't see that one either because it was snowing but I remember being outside and then parents calling all the kids to come inside

It was absolutely amazing here in Tennessee!  While I had to work at school today, the school system bought glasses for everyone to use.  We all went outside at my school to watch.  It was great!  I got some cool shots with my cell phone camera even though it was supposedly going to ruin them.  It didn't.

About 95% here in southern Washington, just like Kerrick said everyone went about 100 miles south to get the 100% view

Supposedly traffic was back up for almost 5 and half hours, 2 days ago! Shocked

^Yeah apparently the going rate for a hotel room or Air BnB or whatever was $1,000 (!!!).  Ridiculous!  We were socked in with fog so you couldn't see a thing here.  The pictures folks posted on FB are pretty cool though!

We drove up to Oregon and saw the totality. Long drive but was totally worth it.

I saw the totality at 2:40 PM. It was far from a complete eclipse, but it was cool. I could tell the luminosity was lower than normal. I also lent my solar shades to a few coworkers who were finishing their shifts. I think they enjoyed it.
