Don't look at the Sun!

I think there is a bit of an eclipse here. But as usual when there is an event like this the sky is full of black cloud.
Bring back Bond!

More like someone threw a dimmer switch-ever so slightly-here. A good friend of mine remembers the eclipse in 1979 and that it got dark all of a sudden(she was in grade school at the time)

It was more impressive on tv. It was closer to a cloudy day with thunderstorm building up. Pictures I got look like nothing much. Closer to the full eclipse it looked very cool.

My nephew wasn't allowed out to view it his class watched the NASA channel but I don't blame the school for not trusting 2nd and 3rd graders not to look directly at the eclipse.
