My wife called from her friend's house to tell me and my daughter to get outside and view the eclipse. I'm glad she did. While not the rarest of occurrences, it's cool none the less. We caught it at the perfect time. There was the shadow of the Earth, a crescent, and a bright spot at about 1:00 . . . it was beautiful. I remember past eclipses being disappointing because of cloud cover. The only thing tonight is that it was COLD! I would have tried to video tape it, but no way. Too cold.
Thanks for the phone call honey!
