I was in Richmond, the central location for the May 30, 1984 annular eclipse, but it was raining, so it only got dark.

That has to be the best video I have seen showing how quick it got dark. Didn't get that in Denver, we were only 92%. Still darn bright. Great job.

Super cool videos, thanks for sharing! In central Illinois, it seemed like a cloud passed over, wasn't too dark. I guess I expected more darkness at 93%.

Was at Kentucky Lake for this one. The Totality was very cool. If you haven't experienced Totality, you should.

We did. Went to Guernsey State Park in Wyoming for 99.9%. It was impressive. I picked up a new telephoto lens and got some amazing pics. But photobucket's new policy has me looking for a new host.

Also first trip to try out my new LED interior lights, they worked great. Barely used any juice for the 3 day off the grid trip.

We ( 6 rigs total) went to SE Nebraska. No cell service so we had no idea were to go for a clear view of the sky we tried to watch thru the clouds :-(

The whole crew is planning for 2024.
