My View of the Solar Eclipse

posted by Jason Aldrich - 

On Monday, I was home at the peak time for my area to view the solar eclipse.

I could notice that the daylight between 1:45 and 2:45pm was a touch darker than normal.

I didn't have the special glasses, or a welder's helmet, so I just used my phone with my back to the sun.

Cloud cover played a big role, as the sun (and moon) darted in and out. To the north, the skies turned black, and thunder rumbled in the distance.

About 30 minutes after I went inside, my part of town got a torrential downpour. Then, the sun came back out.

I didn't get the view I was looking for, but I definitely got to experience several weather and science phenomenea all in a matter of about an hour.

Get ready for 2024, when another solar eclipse comes and we in Northwest and West Central Ohio have a front row seat!
