Our skies in western North Carolina were cloudless! The 85 degree heat was stifling, so my husband attached his iPhone to his telescope eyepiece so our guests could watch the moon's movement over the sun from their chairs under the shade trees. Solar filters were also placed over his astronomical binoculars and "Get Mooned' souvenir eclipse glasses were given to all the neighbors who came to our Solar Eclipse Block Party..

We had a weekend party with friends, in the Sawtooth National Forest in Idaho, that ended with the eclipse totality. I had planned this party a year in advance, and was happy that we had a beautiful weekend with clear skies. I anticipated a spectacular event with a total eclipse, but was still unprepared for the complete experience of a drop in temperature, darkness, and the corona light show. The word I feel best describes it is "spiritual." I want to experience this again.
