The first 2 minutes of this video show the eclipse on Easter Island as it goes to totality. It remained fairly bright until just before totality; Also just before totality the diamond ring affect was very visible.

That means that the 100% area will be fairly close by.
NYC will have 77% coverage this time.

Why are they warning people not to stare at sun today. Every other day it can do just as much damage staring into it

Great site FD!! I do agree with what has been said.. a total eclipse is the best..watching on TV now.. amazing how quickly some states go ENTIRELY black with temps dropping 6 to 10 degrees.....very eerie... then in less then 2 minutes bright as day again..another stat they're mentioning..as the moon crosses the sun it is traveling somewhere between 2,900 and 3,400 M.P.H

good site Blizz.

Our temp dropped 5 degs and I don't think it got quite as dark as everyone expected. But it was like just as the sun is setting and the crickets started chirping. We were right in between Charlotte 98% and Rock Hill 99 but probably just a little closer to Rock Hill.

The reason why is because if its partially covered by the moon, you may be able to look at it much longer then usual because it wouldnt hurt as much, BUT physical damage could hurt you eyes from ultra-violet rays without you feeling it until much later....

I went down to Clemson, which was in totality. We lucked out with the cloud cover, but it was a close call with one cloud at about the 5 minute mark before totality. Fortunately that cloud went away. As Satellite Eyes pointed out, when it was about 98 to 99% there was still a decent amount of light but certainly a noticeable change from normal daylight. The light really started to fade about 10-15 minutes before totality. Just before totality and just after totality was one of the best parts, I thought. It was the diamond ring. The sun was completely covered and black except for a ring of light around 95% of its outer circle. The remaining 5% was a burst of sun that was the last remaining light before totality or after when it was ending. It looked like a giant diamond ring in the sky, awesome. Then it went dark. As Satellite mentioned, the crickets, cicadas, and all the night insects were chirping like the middle of the night. I would say it got dark like after sunset. It was dark over the totality area but off in the distance the sky still had light because that area was not in totality. It was like a 360 degree sunset. Quite an experience and I recommend anyone that can, make plans for 2024.

Was doing some outside work at my Mom's yesterday in Sussex County. It got noticeably dimmer and cooler for about an hour. We made one of those homemade viewers which do work well if you do it right, so we got to see a small image of 1/3 of the sun for a while which was neat. Otherwise, nothing remarkable compared to the areas with totality.

The videos on line of those areas are really neat and it was surprising to me how fast it gets dark than light again in the immediate seconds before and after, and that you only need a thin ring of sunlight to get your daylight back.

Here is the path for 2024. It is much closer to our area, which will be around 90% coverage.
