The excitement of the fellow who made this video was really felt while watching.
And he did good in picking a spot with not as much traffic. I saw where there were places that it took 3 hours just to get out of the parking lot and then bumper to bumper cars to get anywhere.
I think you would have a great time if you were to go to the next one. This guy sounded like he did not regret going to see and film in person.
I see there will be another one in 7 years. Lots of time to plan.
And this guy lucked out in getting those special glasses too. They were gone in lots of places when I would watch to see the news on tv.
Thanks for sharing this video. It was really nice to see.
And I hope you do decide to take a trip to be able to see the next one and make your own video.
That would be awesome.

I had a feeling that would happen here as well (I live in a small town) so I ordered my glasses online in mid July. They were selling out fast ... even at that time. I couldn't even find them here, so I had to order them from the US.

You're welcome!

I'm going to capture it on video next time - not sure why I didn't even think of it. I have a tripod and everything ...
The funniest thing about this signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything, it's to late to stop reading it.

It sounds like you're all set with the right equipment to tape that next one.
And the special glasses also.
I did see where some people had to put a pair of those glasses over their camera lens.
Will you need to do that too or do they make lens to use if purchased for camera?
I wonder if those camera lens are expensive?
And having the tripod will be best also.
I hope to see what happens in 7 years. Something fun to look forward to.
It sure was exciting and fun this year.  cheesy.gif  And if you can tape it that will be even better.

Yes, they sure do make them for camera's - and even iPhones. They range from $100 - $250, but it's just a filter that goes over the lens. It's pricey, but you will get a much cleaner shot than putting those throw-away solar glasses over the lens.

Wow, that is pricey but may be worth it especially if you get better pictures.
Hope you can get lucky and get one on a sale. It sounds like you would like this one better.

I found a badge icon at Pogo from the Whats Your Sign Album that is the super secret badge of an eclipse.
It would have been nice to have that to use for when the eclipse was happening.
I need to look in that album book for more badges that I have forgotten about.

I really do need to go through my badges to remind me of the many that are so very nice.
It gets busy at Pogo and sometimes I have my hands full just trying to keep up.
But, I was pretty happy to find this particular one at this time.
Have a super day.  dancing16.gif
