I'm not that excited for it. I can't see it from here anyways, so I'm just watching a stream.

We're nearly half way up to 97%, and the animals are starting to act weird. The sky has noticeably changed.

Yep. My bird is chirping like crazy. My cat, that is normally fairly nocturnal, is oddly alert. Nocturnal creatures in the area (coyotes and bobcats) will be coming out soon. Glad that I'm not in a wooded area. But most of the time they won't bother you.

Not directly but the Eclipse does tend to confuse animals, whole darkness in the middle of the day and what not. At least that's what I was taught, though I am inclined to believe.

I didn't know that though! Thanks!

Sure. Glad I could lend a bit of light. (pun intended)

Just started out the other side. I really wish I could've seen totality. But yeah. It was epic.

Saw it at 93% over here. (later saw totality on a live stream)

totality path was only 4 hours away but oh well. This was pretty cool and trippy. Shadows acted weird and it got noticably darker outside.

I also don't know about anyone else, but we saw Venus in the sky as well. Not near the sun but rather if you looked up 90 degrees straight up from here. That was VERY cool. (and then a satellite or something in orbit passed next to venus and we could see!)

I wish I could've seen it in totality but I think I will one day see it in totality. I also was nice and let other people use my glasses I had. (and I've saved my glasses in a nice box for the next eclipses that'll happen over the years! :D)
