    Default Eclipse viewing

    I painted an old CD to observe the eclipse. It's a little overcast here but I think we'll get a peek.

    Rain and overcast here. I did get a couple of good glimpses right when it started.

    About 1/4 here. Still too bright to get a pic through a welding hood.
    Maybe in a bit....

    Aloha!

    Nothing in Hawaii, but I'm traveling on the mainland and in the 80 percent path. It got a bit "duskish" at peak time, but with 20 percent still showing and some cloud cover, it was like very heavy cloud cover more than an eclipse. Still, pretty neat.

    Cloudy in Caledonia. 85% but the pinhole did show the moon moving across the sun.
