Lincoln City, OR eclipse
Did any of you see the solar eclipse today? How much of it was available in your area? Here in Philly it was an 80% eclipse. Originally I wasn't going to be able to see it because I had to take Joe to a doctor's appointment, but he changed it to another day.
The day started out with bright sun and then got cloudy.
Then the sun came out.
Then it clouded up again.
I didn't have any glasses and never got around to making a pinhole viewer, so I watched it live stream from our science museum, the Franklin Institute. It was amazing watching the sun be covered up by the moon and then reappearing.
You can tell the cameraman was using a filter because of how orange it is. I made a short video for you too.
I also grabbed a couple of pictures off of our news broadcast. They were much clearer.
Just ignore the date on the pictures. I accidentally set it to the wrong month. Duh.
Did you feel a difference during the eclipse? It didn't get pitch black here, but it got dark like a storm was about to come. It felt like a storm too. All the air was somehow charged. And I was in the house!
Now to try to get a few hours sleep before I have to get up to teach. This is going to be a busy day.
