My son's school got a grant to get eclipse glasses for all the kids and it's gonna end up being too cloudy. Disappointing.

Yeah that sucks, but the good news is the next one is in April, 2024.

I can't help but be wary that this horsefeathers ass repainted 3D glasses-looking POS is going to completely fail when I look up at the eclipse.

I'm down in Carbondale. Mixof sun and clouds. Can see the moon slowly creep in front of sun, but really not much different than what's on tv. Fewer people here than I thought. The nearly three minutes of night should be pretty cool I hope.

Its gotten noticeably darker in the loop over the last 5-7 minutes, but not sure if thats just the clouds. I went down and borrowed someone's glasses, took a peak and I feel like I've had my eclipse experience.

Yep, I looked at it for about 3 seconds with a pair of glasses a student handed me, and my eyes have felt effed up for the past hour. I'm probably permanently blind

I was definitely seeing a big spot for a while afterwards. Pretty cool, though, even though we only got about 85% coverage here.

Clouds went away, amazingly, right at total eclipse. Pretty cool couple of minutes. Not compltete darkness like at night,though, because 360 degrees of horizon had light. Still neat to see.

It was pretty cool. I'm on the north side of STL and we got about 98-99% totality. The coolest thing was all the nature that got completely screwed up by it. Bugs and birds started going crazy making those dusk time sounds as it neared the peak was pretty interesting to hear.

I wasn't seeing spots, but my eyes have been very fatigued for the past 4 hours. After I looked at the eclipse, I asked the students where they got the glasses. They told me "Walmart". FML, should've asked that first.
