    Right here it will be 99% but apparently it will be even better in outlying areas, and so people are expected to swarm in and swarm out as well.

    If it's cloudy and rainy, the whole thing won't be very exciting.

    Maybe they should just cancel it?

    Thumbs up

    My avatar is an eclipse shining through a tree, and projecting on the side of a house. It produces an image from anywhere in the tree leaves that let the sun shine through. It works exactly like a viewing box. but you see the image projected multiple times.

    It would require so many variables to be just right! I wanted to post a larger image of my avatar, but don't know how. Duh! I did try!

    Howie, I'm not sure what I'm looking at here.

    Your Profile image may be the eclipse?

    No the profile image is a moon photo. I can't explain the other image better than I did. Just imagine you are sitting under a tree, looking at the side of your house, during an eclipse. It's hard to explain, but a larger image would show it.

    Aha! I see it now! I looked at the image with the "Zoom" feature set to +300 and was able to see that it is as you say. Interesting!

    I remember the total eclipse of 1979, I was 10 and in grade school. I used a viewing box to watch it with my classmates, out on the school playground. I guess I'll watch the replays on TV tomorrow, since I'll be busy doing back to school things with my teenager.

    It's going to be hot here tomorrow (89') but I'm hoping to get outside to the parking lot where I can see the morning sun briefly, with my eclipse viewing glasses in hand, and get a look at this event. It will be 99.5% total here.
