Did any of you guys get to see the solar eclipse? It was around 73-80% totality here, but wasn't really noticeable without special glasses. It did look amazing with the glasses. |3

I hope for the sake of your retinas that you didn't try looking at the solar eclipse before putting the special glasses on. :v

 

I missed out on the solar eclipse though. Slept in too late and missed the free eclipse glasses that were being given away, and I certainly wasn't going to waste money buying some. Had like 95%+ totality here though. Would have had 100% if I lived further south in my state.

Definitely not. XD;; My brother and I watched it at a pier with a couple friends. A leaving family gave one of our friends a pair of glasses, so we were really fortunate. 

 

Sorry to hear that. I'm sure there are plenty of good photos and videos.

Not as interesting if it's not viewed in person. But it's supposed to happen again in April 2024. Plenty of time to prepare for.

We only had 75% coverage here, but I had some old glasses from the Venus transit in 2013 so we just used those!

I didn't know about it until someone (My mom's friend) was talking about going to see the eclipse. And I didn't have anyone to go with. So I missed it. Tried to look online to see if anyone recorded it (You know like the news team or something).

I'm sure you can find lots of videos on youtube. NASA had a livestreaming, as did others. There are definitely plenty of pictures too.
