Just so that you all know and are warned. After all of this hype, if it rains or is overcast, I WILL be laughing my head off!!!

I know that this is a rare occurrence, but to me it is no big deal if the moon's orbit takes it in front of the sun. I seems to me to hardly be the "life changing" event that some folks tout.

Just drove by the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space museum next to Dulles. Evidently, they have a few thousand pairs of eclipse glasses to give away today. There was a backup about a mile long to get into the place.

We're at 60%, marine layer is clearing now, supposed to be at it's max at about 10:20. It should at least dim down quite a bit for a few.

Should be decent here. Pouring rain this morning then the sun came out. Just kind of hazy now. We are almost directly in the path here in Omaha.

I made 5 pinhole projector boxes, 3 for my family and 2 for work. We'll get 72% here and it's nice and clear skies right now.
wish I got some glasses but I snoozed on ordering them.

About 3/4 covered here. Very clear shots here. Glad everyone that traveled up here is getting a good show.

Unfortunately, there was lots of smoke from nearby wildfires. However, this really only prevented us from seeing a lot of stars. We could see Venus during totality, but that was about it. Nonetheless, it was a really, really cool sight. Very surreal. The following picture does not do it justice (due to issues of dynamic range of my camera, I suspect).

We were in the 70% range of the path here in Dallas, I made a viewer box and the people here at work loved it.

Great video @Stressbaby
