It was the best possible viewing conditions at my house - crisp, clear, no trees and late enough that a lot of city lights were off. In fact, i don't think i have ever seen so many stars over my house.
So beautiful and still.
The moon was high in the sky directly over Orion, coppery orange and darkening when i went outside. The clearness of the sky, the chill in the air, the creeping shadow of the Earth: it all felt like a movie. I watched totality through binoculars. It was amazing and made me feel small, in a good way. I took pictures to post for you:
