    Ours was bold and impressive, as our High Desert atmosphere was relatively clear.

    There's no doubt that the Earth is round, judging from our shadow on the Moon between First Contact and Totality.

    I went out at about 3/4 totality. Moon was a hazy brown.

    Moving this over from the duplicate thread...

    I missed it, and it was crystal clear here too. The first I heard about it was on TV after it was over. :( I did look outside after I heard the news and it was unbelievably light. You could see details of the whole yard at midnight.

    It was great here, but very cold to be standing outside. The sky stayed crystal clear until after the eclipse, then started to cloud over.

    It was about 18-20 ° here but since I probably won't be here for the one in 2029, I braved the cold to take some pictures.

    This was about 11:40.

    Then at about 12:00.

    I was surprised to see that it really was red.

    This one has a reflection. Must be some water up there somewhere. ;):D

    Joking --- I wish they would plan these things in the daytime so I do not have to stay up all night. It was beautiful here in the Dominican Republic I enjoyed it but not the sleep lost
