I missed this thread because I went to see it and had no signal the whole time! I drove up to Wyoming. It was amazing. It was incredible how quickly it went from light to dark in just the span of a few moments, and the moon with the corona behind it was unreal. We saw stars and planets come out, and the felt the temperature dropping as totality approached! I wish it weren't so short. There's so much that goes on during an eclipse and so little time to process it all.

That's so cool - especially the bit about temperature!
