We observed the solar eclipse at the Vineyard Mountain Swim Club in Corvallis, OR.
As totality approached, there was a noticeable drop in the temperature. The breeze picked up, which we were told was typical for evening time. It was the equivalent of sunset, but not total darkness.
Totality was an amazing experience. For 1 minute 49 seconds we could observe the eclipsed sun and the sun's corona without our eclipse glasses. It was an incredible and amazing sight.
As the moon moved from in front the sun, we could see shimmering shadows of the sun's corona cast on the concrete surrounding the pool. I didn't expect that at all. What an experience - Wow!!
