Any ardent solar eclipse watchers here? I'm in the 80% (plus or minus) totality zone.

I'm not set up to watch directly, however, the wife-unit is going to make a pin-hole projector so she and my younger son can do that thing.

Sorry for lack of sourcing...

Got to go outside and watch the 91% of totality via proper glasses.

Awesome...

Still no source, you fucking NAZI?

I'm going to go downvote every post of yours I can find on this site.

Getting 90% around here. As close to total as we are going to get in about 38 minutes or so. Strangely enough we are going to get the next one here in 2024 as well. The two paths converge right near us. It must be a sign of Cincinnati's lack of Godliness.

I just watched for about 5 minutes - welding hood (13 shade automagic one) with my oakleys for added relief. Or, you can just grab a livestream off youtube - there are several in progress.

@BFM - I'll be in path for total 2024, and near pretty close in 2023, too.

Pics or it didn't happen, right?

I know, obviously fake news...

Well ... that was the sun.



According to the light sensor on my phone we were at 1600 flux during the peak... whatever the hell that means. I mean I know bright midday sun is 35000+ flux thingies. Also the color is this awesome yellow orange everywhere.

This is a good start. Now, I just need proof that you actually took that picture.

A signed affidavit that is properly notarized will suffice.

The eclipse was a total letdown for me. Not a single Lizard Man to be seen.....

The whole event has been co-opted by naziwhitesupremecistKKKfreespeachers .

You should have boycotted...

I tried to boycott, but got called out for my cisgender heteronormative ways.

I should have PERSONcotted the eclipse.

Cincinnatti has fulfilled my hopes and dreams!

Gosh, I NEVER thought I'd say THAT in my life....

Drove past some office workers with pin holes in paper. A couple of the ladies were looking at the sun through the holes. This was about ten minutes before max coverage. Hoping someone set them straight.

Welding helmet for the win.
