I never got past my indifference to the eclipse yesterday, and still managed to
be disappointed since it didn't even get that dark around here. I presume being
in the path of totality would have the effect I expected, but around here where
the moon only covered about 80% of the sun, it was essentially the same as if it
was cloudy. I eventually got what I was looking for when the sun set, and I
didn't even need any special glasses.
