It’s 12 noon on Monday here in the Pacific Northwest, and the solar eclipse has just ended. It started at the Oregon coast, and the moon shadow traveled at about 1,400 mph across the continent. Here is a collage of (mostly) my own pictures of what we saw and experienced here in Seattle (92% of the sun obscured). We had blue skies; eclipse watchers in South Carolina had cloud cover, though. My takeaway: the sun is a mighty, mighty source of heat and light, radiating a lot of light even at 92% obscured. The ambient temperature did feel as if it went down by 5 to 10 degrees due to the obscured sun, though.
