Told my husband yesterday to forget about the glasses because he wouldn't be able to see it anyway. I guess Lowes was selling them, not sure if they were already sold out, but he decided to give up finding a pair.

Partial from Vegas anyway

To see the real thing you needed planning and to travel

Won't happen again across the US like this for quite some time

Otherwise, total solar eclipses happen approximately every 18 months on average

but given the Earth is mostly uninhabited/sea, that's where they'll be

I am in the East Coast. Totally forgot about and ended buying glasses last minute on kijiji. I paid 10 x what they cost, but was totally glad I was able to snap them up just in time and made sure to offer as many people as I ran in to a chance to take a look at the eclipse with them. Cool experience. We did not get as much of it as other places... but never the less it was really cool to see !

Just got back to the hotel in boise. Spent the day at a small town park in Ontario Oregon. First total. Like the poster before said, total eclipse was worth the planning and travel. It completely transforms at the moment of total into something completely different than what you where looking at a sec earlier. Looking bare naked eye during total eclipse 2 minutes. Very spiritual to see the awe of the corona, then the instant the sun peeks out its the whitest light you'll ever see.

We had perfect cloudless skies.

It is sort of ironic that the people living in a desert in one of the sunniest places on the planet don't see the eclipse because of clouds and rain! Oh well!!
