Thanks Molly.

I do remember previous eclipses... not sure if they were "Total Eclipses"?

It occurs to me that if you dont bother looking at the Sun, then the effect is that "It gets Dark"?

We have that most days.. we call it "Night Time" :cool

LOLOL! :84

We had a "partial" about 30 minutes ago. Temperature dropped two degrees. :roll

Have to wait 4 years for a total eclipse here.
