    Harbor Freight here locally had a run on the e14 welding masks ( I think it was e14? ) and literally ran out by thursday of last week.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Wife and kids went to the local science museum - they had a NASA presenter, and boxes of free glasses.

    Yeah, my hood is a Harbor Freight (https://www.harborfreight.com/weldin...ign-63122.html). It's way decent for the money, I think I dropped $30 on it, on sale. YMMV if you weld for a living, but for quick home fixes, it does the trick. Got their cheap wire welder, too, it says it has a duty cycle 20%, but I've gone way longer. Biggest use to date was replacing/reinforcing about 4 feet of my boat trailer - that was (8) 4-foot beads 11-gauge Ls to the cheap galv 16-gauge original, which was mostly rusted out. Did the whole thing in about 2 hours. Made-in-China FTW.

    We had between 90 and 95% eclipse here. I watched it through my Lunt Ha solar telescope. Quite a few nice solar prominences were visible along the edge of the disk.

    Tomorrow, the damage assessment begins. Eyes across America.

    I couldn't help but notice during the press coverage today how at least half the people just couldn't resist taking off the glasses or just not using any.

    That's before we factor in all the people duped into buying fake glasses.

    Trump looked at least three times before donning glasses. Blind AND stupid, with Barron also out and about with no protection...Melania wore hers with style from the very beginning.

    What an omen that was.

    I know, obviously fake news...
    Is that from your phone? It got a little dark here, but that was it. I watched totality on CNN.com. It was totally fake.

    I was reading about how the optics on some viewing equipment negate eye protections e.g. glasses or wielding shades. In general it's not recommended to view eclipses through traditional cameras, telescopes, etc even when using those.

    I don't think there's much of a risk viewing an eclipse from the screen of a digital camera, since it's just a representation.

    That was through proper eclipse-viewing filter, hence, the darkness.
