2017 Total Eclipse In Path Of Totality

Fortunate to live in path of totality for Aug 21 total eclipse! I had family visiting from out of town to experience it, so we were out on the porch watching the big show in the sky. Enjoyed the sun's corona and the "360-degree sunset colors" all around on the horizon during totality. Birds and circadas went silent and my chickens went in the coop. As the sun brightened again, the roosters began crowing and the birds and insects started up again.

It was a magical experience.

Eclipse began at 17:01 UTC

Totality began 18:29:34 UTC and peaked 18:30:52 UTC and ended 18:32:11 UTC

Eclipse ended 19:56:03 UTC

Near the eclipse totality, 6 stations copied my 5W WSPR signal
