It's weird, I was humming/singing total eclipse of the heart (shhh, it's my car, I can sing what I want ) on the way home last night and I didn't even realize there was an eclipse...it just kinda popped into my head...
We had a perfectly clear sky here, So I broke Out the telescopes and took a look.
Also, this qualifies as "Hardcore Astronomer" because it was negative 14 frikkin degrees out, wind chill down to negative 30. And there were about two feet of snow and ice on the ground that I had to clear away to set up the telescopes.
I actually saw it too, but not at its peak, about at the picture Kams had of it, is kind of what it looked like for me. It was interesting, but I want to see a sun Eclipse one day, that would just be erie.
