in reply to During the recent solar eclipse, I:
Went to see it at my brother's in Oregon. All the web sites said you have to actually see it in totality: 99% is not enough. Boy were they right! It is the most spectacular sight I have ever seen, with such incredible contrast. The stars and planets were visible. But the ring... I saw the shadow cover first the mountain furthest, then a closer one. Then I heard the people a quarter mile away shouting. Sure enough, there it was. Very emotional sight. I wish it could have lasted longer. Can't wait to see the next one.
