S/W of KC Mo.
This morning It Rained and we worried that it would be cloudy all day and we would miss the big event. Then it turned partly cloudy.. and just at the Right time.... the sky opened up and we saw The Perfect Eclipse.. and then it started clouding up again. I took a picture but A Camera canít catch what the Eye Can see.. When the Eclipse happen I took the picture and It looked like the regular Sun but dimmer. it didnít show the blacked out sun.
I saw on the News.. that there was one man came from Australia to see this. That' a long way to come for a Two minute sight. After the Eclipse with in 5 minutes it clouded up again. Later we got 2" of pounding rain and severe lightening. They say more storms are expected tonight.
It's been a full and exciting day.
