Wasn’t as magical overall as I’d hoped. Even more so being at work with the rest of the worker bees.
And then the clouds totally took over at 1:18pm.

The experience can be addictive, Baron says. A total solar eclipse lasts only a few minutes — just a couple minutes on August 21st, depending where you are — but those few minutes can give you a “feeling of incredible connection to the universe,” he says. During a total solar eclipse, the day turns into night, and all of a sudden you can see the planets appear in the sky. You can also see the Sun’s wispy outer atmosphere, called the corona, the jets of light and rays shot into the surrounding universe. “It’s just the most breathtakingly beautiful, I daresay, glorious sight in the heavens,” Baron says.
So for me here in Central Time on August 21st I need to be out watching around 1:10pm. At 1:18pm it’ll be 87% which is the highest peak in our area.
The next one won’t be until 2024 so don’t miss out.
