For anybody who didn't fly, drive, or walk to get into the path of totality, you MUST do so in 2024. I promise that you will never see anything so amazing as what the sun looks like in full eclipse. It was breathtaking. I can't describe how it looked, and I can't even come close to describing how it felt. Pictures and video do no justice. You. Must. Go. Sell a pin or two or three. Just do what you need to get the time, the money, and the means to go.
Here's a composite of pics I took yesterday in Swan Valley, Idaho.
Quoted from blondetall:
I'm taking off half a day tomorrow so I can watch it from home. We're in the 99.78% and I have a clear shot from my front yard. We thought about going to Rock City for the views, but with construction in the area they've funneled everyone onto one very narrow road up/down the mountain, and I have a feeling we'd be stuck forever for traffic and probable car wrecks. Our zoo is also opening up their large field for people to view it there and watch the animals react to the eclipse, so we might end up there if traffic isn't crazy in that direction.
OMG, please tell me you didn't watch it so close to the totality path and not go.
