    Thought I hadn't seen much of the sun today.

    Oh, it's because of the clouds :(

    That is so cool, I've always wanted to see a total solar eclipse. Too late to eff off to China or something?

    I've only ever seen a total lunar eclipse... got lousy photos of it too.

    I remember the eclipse that passed over the southeast US back in the 80s...I was in 2nd grade so it was '82-'83 or thereabouts. We went outside around lunchtime and it was ominously dark and very cool.

    Witnessing a total solar eclipse is an awesome and humbling (some would say spiritual) experience.
    Last one I saw (years ago) gave me goose bumps all over. And when totality was reached the assembled crowds erupted in whoops and cheers.
    Highly recommended to witness with friends and like minded individuals. :cool:

    Please note that NASA TV, and their web site, will be showing this live, around the world.

    Check your local time zone for your exact timing.

    Already been and gone here…
    Looked like someone had taken a dainty bite out of a round of Parmesan cheese.
