That eclipse was absolutely the most incredible thing I've seen. I hope some of you looked at if for a few seconds without your glasses at totality. It was cool that the cicadas started singing, I saw a couple bats, and a hawk was circling while it was dark.

+1 Quite an unforgettable sight for sure. Venus became visible and even the weird ambiance for the couple minutes before and after totality were so cool. 10/10 would watch again. Pictures just don't do it justice, unfortunately.

It was freaky to see a black spot where the sun should've been! The corona was super clear and visible during the totality, crazy to see it with the naked eye.

Absolutely!

I keep having to explain to people the difference between a normal partial eclipse that we've all seen before and the totality. So many confused people out there who don't know. People are dumb.

I was fortunate to have seen it as well and the whole thing was awesome. I just wish I hadn't been surrounded by dumb coworkers the whole time but at least my wife joined us so I had some nice company.

And yeah I didn't even bother with pictures. I knew it would only last a minute or so and I didn't want to be distracted by screens and buttons and shit. No regrets.

I was able to look at the corona through binoculars, it was really cool.

I also saw "shadow bands" on a white pickup truck hood. Had no idea those were "a thing" and had to Google them when I got home.
