I have to work that day.
Since it sounds like it will be the morning time when its semi near us...its a coin toss if we will be able to see the eclipse. It would only be partial anyway (for us)
And well..........there is always the fog. lol.

I will only get a partial eclipse, but I've seen total eclipses before, and it's eerie/cool!

I'm anxious about it all. To be on the safe side I will get a couple of pairs but I don't know if we'll go out to watch it.

Was listening to the radio yesterday and they put on this guy talking about the eclipse.
He as saying that Oregon will get the total effect. Its supposed to be totally dark, and you will be able to see the stars. Birds will start to coo like they do when its nighttime.
He did say the effect will only be totally dark for about 2 min. and then it will start to lighten up again.
This sounds so cool!

In my area, we will only get a partial. And it will be from about 9am to maybe 11am.
And yeah, they are predicting a good possibility of fog. So we may not notice anything down here.

He did say to pay attention to the shadows thru the trees. I forget or didnt understand exactly why or how
Also dont look directly at it. (the sun)


oops looks like I lied about how long

I don't think we'll see any of it at all I have a good friend who's flying to Nashville to see it.

I learned about it in astronomy last year, All of my professors are actually taking the day off and encouraging students to take a road trip! I think I'll just drive up for the view and not plan on partying with all of the other science nerds! lol Even if our view isn't too well, living to see the slightest bit of it is awesome. I hiked a mountain to see the Endeavour space shuttle take it's last flight in 2011 (I think). I still can't stop talking about it lol.

Ah, the Perseids are my favorite! Every year I lie out in the horse pastures watching. Even year they wander over to the strange lump on the grass, sniff, and go about the business of grazing. Hi/bye and back to the stars.

I love this event. I was just out and even though it's early here, I saw five with incredible tails. I'll probably go out again in a few hours. We've got a big lighting storm off to the east, as well, so it's sort of an electrical competition.
