    I think I will make my own total eclipse… that’s better than the partwise they promised for today ;O)

      Molly has reservations made for eclipse time: she’s reserving time for a short walk outside when the sun blinks and it’s supposed to actually be a few degrees cooler! Things here are looking down for out HAHA
      Thanks for rolling a comment this way

      The thing about the kit is that you can use it and amaze your friends: despite your location, you experienced the eclipse yourself HA HA
      Have a sparkling day and thanks for gazing along

    I think I have one of those. Oh wait! My trash is in it!

    Just funny. There have been plenty of times recently I’ve felt like putting a bag over my head, but I’d never considered its usefulness as an eclipse simulator. I hope people that traveled distances to see the totality get their wish, but I’m not as excited as some. After all — we get our big chance in only six years. So much for the breathless “It’s a once in a lifetime event” commentary.

      Seriously. The media is getting to be like an Energizer Bunny jumping from one hyped up beyond reason event/situation to the next. If this gets people/introduces observers to the wonders of science and the natural world, good. But the anchors’ breathlessness is a bit silly….unless the goats actually do disappear….now that would be news to gnu. Thanks for bagging up a comment to leave

    I’ll have to order early for the 2024 eclipse – I don’t want to get hoodwinked like all these people who are going to wait until the last minute.

    There were some eclipse parties around here for the 60% coverage but it seemed not to be worth the effort and I did not have glasses. I did go outside a little after noon and it seemed to be a bit cooler and the light was a little different. Wiccan, our black cat, slept through it all. Perhaps I will plan ahead for 2024 (if I am around) when the elipse will come over Texas. You might have made some money with your black-out bags! I will just raise a glass of wine this evening as the sun goes down and the world and not ended. Cheers!

      Ditto here. The light outside was different – like solar film on windows. The dog just yawned on the couch. Somehow the pictures of the total eclipse crowds eerily reminded me of Stonehenge-type gatherings. Might be worth locating a boat for the next time across…water and eclipse might be a real experience. Thanks for gazing along

    I always wonder how many idiots will stare at the eclipse without any protection for their eyes whatsoever, and finish up blind as bats. There’s always some that think they can beat the odds,

    As a child I can recall, whilst at school, watching an eclipse, using smoked mirrors, held at an angle so that any rays were not directed towards the eyes, that’s going back some 70 years or so

      There was some way about smoked glass/mirrors – I remember watching my mom smoke something when I was very little. The coolest watching tool I saw yesterday was made by some mom with 3 small children: she took a paper plate, cut small eye holes and holes for glasses’ ear pieces, put the official eclipse sun shades over the eye holes, shoved the glasses’ “arms” through the paper plate and tapes it all flat and securely. Then cut a pie shaped section just large enough for kid sized nose and mouth. The kids held the paper plate up to their faces and were completely covered. (and had obviously been taught to look down before smashing plate against face or taking it off) Well done. Hmmm maybe for the next time, a new product to sell? HAHA
      Thanks for adding a shady comment 🙂
