Well, I got photos but yours are much better than mine.
Was planning to travel to Walnut Ridge AR but weather looked a bit dodgy so switched to Paducah KY but it was looking a little cloudy so we stayed home and, between the rain clouds, was able to watch the whole event -- well, 89% anyway. Really cool!!
Can't wait for the next one. Think I'll be like 109 then. :D

I took nearly 50 pics and only could salvage a few.
But I did get full eclipse, a "Diamond ring" shot and captured the Baily's Beads effect.
The upper clouds were thin and blurred the pics.
The salvageable pics were fleeting glimpses through lower more dense clouds.
1st total eclipse for me and it was way darker than I imagined.
Only a glowing ring with an odd red spot in the quite dark sky.

Pretty surrealistic!

That's exactly how I did it when one went across Oregon about 6-7 years back!

So the world didn't end, then? No dogs and cats fornicating? No (more) aliens? Joe Dirt didn't explode? Right, I'm off the the "Things that irritate you" thread...... :P

My dog and cat fornicated. It was a bit confusing. My wife and I had quite a discussion over what "style" it was...🤔

I am not sure how much my wife paid for this tug toy for one of the dog's Christmas stockings, but the fact that it makes each of us laugh every time we see it 3+ months later, makes it easily one of the best investments we have ever made! :D It is always moving, so surprises us every time!
