Was anyone in the totality areas? We decided to stay in the partial eclipse area here where we live. Luckily, I bought glasses a couple of months ago, so we had them and it made it so easy to view.
Since there was so much hype about bad glasses and people losing their vision, we only looked for a few seconds and then took a 10-15 minute break before looking again. It was very cool! The last time I saw it was through a pinhole, but the glasses give you a much different view.
Next time in 2024, the totality area is coming through Texas, so we will definitely see it. I hope my kids join me, but they will all be adults then, so it may just be me and hubs.
I tried to get a picture with my cell - holding the glasses in front of the lens AND my eyes. But mine could not get clear.
My daughter, however, got a great shot!
