Solar Eclipse 2017
|The eclipse glasses I got: the ones on the left for my husband and the ones on the right for me.|
I live in Nebraska, so we were already in the path of totality. It was predicted that we would get about 98% totality where we were right around 1:02 p.m., which was good enough for me. I went out to lunch during my lunch break with my husband, and arrived back at my job at about 12:25. I put on my eclipse glasses (see first photo) and could see the Moon about 1/3 of the way across the Sun. I took this picture, at that time, with my phone through the eclipse glasses.
