I was working outside during the time when it was 75% , it was cloudy so I never really noticed " anything " , 75% I was expecting to experience something , it was a flop for me -----like Mac mentioned , the next one I too will be in the 100% path
it is mind boggling that the moon is 400 times smaller than the sun and it is exactly 400 times the distance from the sun , so it all works out
We managed to see a total eclipse here about 15 years ago, certainly something I'll remember forever. I remember all the birds tweeting away as it got darker!
Apparently we were supposed to be able to see the eclipse your talking of, nothing down south here as it was very cloudy, according to the news a few astrophotographers managed to grab a few shots up in Scotland.
I was in the totality coverage. It looked like the sun put on a pair of limo tint sunglasses for about 45 seconds or so. Here's what it looked like at 2:30 pm on a clear day with no clouds right at the peak. It was a very specific type of dark brown hue.
My wife and I flew to Denver and drove to Casper Wyoming. NO clouds, perfect day and an awesome total eclipse ( our 2nd one). The sun was dark for 2 MIN 30 secs.We used shade 14 welders glass to do our viewing. There were plemty of shaded telescopes on hand for close up views. Next one in USA - Austin Tx 2024.
