    2017 Eclipse

    Wondering how many ppl got to see it. Pretty spectacular. As it got dark the birds got quiet and the normal night sounds started like owls hooting, etc. Totality only lasted about minute and a half and when it started to get light again the night sounds faded to birds chirping again like it was morning.

    I need just one more rc, then Im done,

    Since i live in Texas, i only got to see a partial eclipse... like 75%. it was definitely weird to watch the sun just start to disappear, but i would've really liked to have seen the total eclipse. Cool pics btw!

    Didn't know if you could do this type of thread, so here's the best from Twitter, re-sized down and framed by me:

    Nice pics everyone.

    Unfortunately I'm outside the totality range, so I didn't get to see the whole thing.

    I live in southern California and didn't get the eclipse in "totality" (sounds more like a finishing move in Mortal Combat!).

    GOD: How do I get 300,000,000 fools to look at the sun all at once?

    Lol. That's gold. In Michigan we got about 75 percent totality. My mom was terrified that Somone would burn there retinas out so she wouldn't let anyone out of the house. My daily bashing was interrupted.

    Not science nut by any means. But it was really awesome and really eery at the same time. Was right in the path here in southeast Missouri. Tons of people flooded the area for a two minute event.
    Had a woman that came from portugal. Yes Portugal. That was an astronomer and had been planning the trip for 4 years to come and see it.

    I'm in southern Ontario so we only got like 71% I think it was. Man I wished I was in the path of totality. At least it'll be near us on the 8th of April of 2024. But I cringe so much when people are like "don't stare at it" or "stay inside". Like isn't obvious that the suns ultra violet rays are still BEAMING down at the Earth? Like, it's so bright I still can't even look at it during the eclipse...

    Thats golden too! My daughter(15yr old) called me balling saying she accidentally looked at sun and has a white spot and asked if shed go blind now.

    Ima bad dad, I told her to take a mental snap shot of everything she wants to remember, lmbo! (Background info: she was with mom, uncle, aunt and grandparents and they kept telling her shes fine, I knew that prior to her calling me and had to have fun with since she was being silly and wouldnt listen to anyone.)
