@JP, I was told that that eclipse was only full in The States and it was full across their whole landmass which is apparently quite unusual. I wonder if that included Hawaii and Alaska.

No real news my side, it's become boringly busy.
One good thing - I stopped smoking a while back

Yes I know it was only in America. I live streamed it. Fantastic view

Nope only mainland USA. Also only about 10 states got a full eclipse rest of country partial eclipse

Yes, but apparently right across from the east coast to the west coast. At what angle I don't know.


@BB, a bit late to comment but just want to say that I really liked the look of your gold TV that you posted somewhere. What make & model is that?
