The Great American Eclipse

The main topic of discussion these days is the solar eclipse, probably because we are in that blue stripe on the weather map that indicates the area of total blackout. We have been aware of this since at least the beginning of the year and attending public lectures about what an eclipse is, i.e. the moon passing between the earth and the sun so that it blocks out the light, partially for most, completely for a lucky few on the path between Oregon and South Carolina.

      We were so hot and sweaty from sitting outside in the sun that we took showers and ate out. We saw most of the eclipse, but at the last second before totality, a cloud floated in front of the sun. It was still dark and cool, but we missed seeing the corona during the full eclipse.
