If you are in one of the cities listed by NASA, is it like nighttime for those minutes, in some of those cities it's 1 hour or longer????

Like Buffalo NY, starts at 2:04 pm and ends at 4:32 pm

I'm gonna grab a lawn chair and couple of cold ones and watch it all go down from the comfort of my back yard!!


Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck.”

Watched the 2017 one from my backyard. Another in 1984. Extraordinary experience in person.

I have read that the temperature drops dramatically (obviously I guess) and birds start roosting as think it's the end of the day. I wonder what other phenomena occurs?

In these modern times... mass migrations of humans to points along the path of totality. Hotels and VRBOs, etc. hitting max. capacity. (Not what you were looking for, I know)

Crickets etc start "cricketing". During the 1984 eclipse I was at a house with a lot of big trees in the yard, the light shining through the tiny holes in the leaves covered the ground with millions of little cresents.

Looks like my house is on a direct line. The Totality only lasts 4 minutes. But, I'll take it biggrin

Thanks for the "heads up" post complete with links (I used them). thumbsup

No eclipse here. If you are in the eclipse area, please take some photos for us. Thank you.

Regarding Photos. I'll try.

Thing is, we live very near Lake Erie. Very moist and cloudy much of the time (today is perfect for March and/or an Eclipse -- 70+ degrees, clear sky, bright sun).

We'll see if we see more than an "early Sunset" darkening on Eclipse day. smile

In person, it is even more filamentous. The camcorder tends to blow it out. The totality period is only a couple of minutes out of those two hours. You won't even notice much until 15 minutes on either side. It just seems like their is a haze that you can't really see. About 20 seconds before totality, it's like somebody took a giant dimmer switch and turned down the world.


The older I get, the more I realize I don't need to be Han, Luke or Leia. I'm just happy to be rebel scum...

If things go as they did for the 2017 eclipse all the welding glasses etc are probably already sold out in the effected areas.
