The Sun has just set here, New Castle, Delaware, U.S., about 30 miles South of Philadelphia. Terrific piece of luck here. Was cloudy all day. Nothing until 30 minutes or so after first contact. Then the low clouds parted to reveal a high cirrus layer - and a beautiful cloud filtered very sharp Sun with a tiny black dot! No filters, naked eye visible. This alternated with obscuring clouds and too bright (goggle time) every few minutes for about an hour before heavy cloud cover returned.
And compliments to all the good live videos. Great experience.
I'm not a hardnosed mainstreamer; I just like the observations, theories, predictions, and results to match.
