Total Eclipse August 21, 2017

Yes! It happened just as predicted by science. Plus, we were lucky enough to have left ridiculously early to drive towards the totality of the solar eclipse path near Clemson, SC. So, we enjoyed a view of the eclipse, partially obstructed by some cloud cover. We joined a party held by Tile Council of North America (TCNA) [https://www.tcnatile.com] and the National Brick Research Center.

 

Here are a number of NASA (nasa.gov) photographs (and a representation) of the eclipse yesterday, plus a screen capture of the map of the eclipse path across South Carolina, near where we were.

If you missed it or want to relive it, try NASA’s eclipse 2017 page or eclipse 2017 photo gallery.

Eclipse Background from Wikipedia

The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, dubbed “The Great American Eclipse” by the media,[1] was a total solar eclipse visible within a band that spanned the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts. As a partial solar eclipse, it was visible on land from Nunavut in northern Canada to as far south as northern South America. In northwestern Europe and Africa, it was partially visible in the late evening. In Asia, it was visible only at the eastern extremity, the Chukchi Peninsula.
