I braved the 7 hours of traffic to head into the path of totality, and think it was absolutely worth it. It's an incredibly beautiful site to see first hand.

Looking forward to traveling in 2024 for the next total eclipse passing North America.

How dark was it Emac? I heard in the darkest areas the stars came out?

This was my third Eclipse, but I've never experienced anything much more than a slightly cloudy day. My first was here in Colorado in 1979. It was during a school day and they had a big science
project set-up. It had different ways of viewing the eclipse, like the hole in paper, some sort of double glass thingy, and of course glasses. It did not get very dark then either but at least we all got to
see it develop. I heard that some schools in Denver were keeping all the children inside??? That seems like a wasted opportunity to get little gears turning inside little minds. I would of kept my kid
out of school and let them experience it somehow. Might get the feller to wondering~

Never one to miss an opportunity, Woody.

Watching it go total, the sun disappeared from my glasses, and the peripheral view outside the glasses got noticeably darker. There were a couple stars out, but it was more like dusk than a deep black. The best part is taking off the dark glasses and seeing the corona glowing; it's certainly a "Wow" moment. The best pictures I've seen don't do it justice.

I remember doing that in school years ago too; I hope schools made good use of that teaching opportunity.
