    If you want a REAL treat... go check out the video Matt Parker released on his Stand Up Maths channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9FZgaPdIuY
    The night before this eclipse we had dinner together and he explained all about the cycles that determine when eclipses happen! He delivers all this information in one take DURING the eclipse! Impressive.

      Aw shucks! Too bad the mountain got in the way. I have been watching you since your dragons breath shotgun video back in the day. I finally subscribed, since I started a little channel of my own. I think it’s just great that you and your wife could get away. I need to do that myself. More power to ya. God bless from the Colville Indian Reservation,

      I love that the mountain edge was sharper than the moon edge. An awesome shot!

                  When my wife and I took our kids and grandkids to Tennessee to see the eclipse a couple years ago, it ended up being one of the great bonding moments of our lives. She and one of our granddaughters were just crying during the full eclipse. Amazing moment. The kids all talk about it even today.

                        Back some years ago (back in the 90s when I was a teen) I had the incredible luck to see a solar eclipse in my parents garden in Germany. That was a impressive sight. Flashed me totally. Every store sold glasses to see the eclipse safely. every one was totally hiped. I wish I can see one again in my lifetime.

                        Thank you very much. Your vid touched me very deep <3

                        Btw: the beard suites you very fine!

                            I realise its been a few months since upload, but I'm just curious what tracker were you using and how did you find its use? (Asking cause I'm looking for one too, mainly for tracking the sun and moon using cameras and not telescopes, so similar use case)

                                          I was robbed in North Charleston 2017. It was the craziest supernatural storm me, my friends, and my family ever saw. The storm happened at the moment the eclipse did and all we could see was rain and lighthing/thunder. The red horizon made the storm look very weird. There are videos on YouTube showing that storm. Don't ask me to find them for you.

                                                    This gave me chills. I love it. I can't wait to see the eclipse through Texas in a few years. I went to Tennessee to dog/cat sit for my mom during the last eclipse and was blown away by it. She was having heart surgery while the eclipse was happening and missed it. So now I want her to come to Texas to see the next one.

                                                    There is nothing like it.

                                                              I was listening to an otherwise intelligent podcaster who was acting as if a Solar Eclipse was No Big Deal. It's no big deal until you've experienced it and then you know how weird, wild, and wonderful it truly is. We got one in South Carolina in 2018. I completely understood the concept of the pinhole view box, but when I went to check on Mom on a bench in the shade, every sunbeam shining between the thousands of leaves on the tree cast its own pinhole Eclipse image on the ground.
                                                              Then I started wondering, Where else in our Solar system could you witness a similar celestial event?
                                                              If you were on the moon, the Earth would Completely block the sun for hours, but you would not see the corona of the sun.
