    Can't be too great, most of us won't even get a glimpse except in news reports later that evening. :crying:

    Carolyn, it doesn't happen until August 21st. So you haven't missed anything.

    We will be able to see a partial solar eclipse, and my husband is excited about it. We have solar glasses coming to protect our eyes while watching the eclipse, and he has a special filter for the camera so he can photograph the event.
    If we get photos of the partial eclipse I'll post. If not, I'll post a picture of a very disappointed husband.

    Back in March tried to make reservations at a park to go view it in August. All were fully booked for the occasion within a 400 mile radius. Figure we will just drive down for the day and drive back. Some people are very good at planning to have filled up every state, federal, etc. camp ground. Unfortunately some campgrounds upped the charges for staying after the fact. Saw the last one and it was pretty amazing.

    Our town is right on the edge of the total eclipse so we will just watch it from our back yard. We had a total eclipse in the early 80's when we lived in northeastern Washington. The most memorable thing we remember about it is watching our free range chickens all go into the hen house and settle down for the 'night' then the sun came back out and they all walked back out looking around like 'What happened'! :rofl: :smt044
