Well if they do come for you in white coats and carrying nets, don't tell them about me, those aren't the ones I want to go with. I'd much prefer the lanky bipeds with big heads and that communicate telepathically

Unfortunately, those ones are serious pervs, with no concept of personal space. I roomed with 3 of them for 20 years and there was nothing but tentacle porn on the TV, 24/7. I never want to see another suction cup or antennae.

I was lucky to live only 2 hours south of the totality zone, so I took my daughter out of school and we made a little trip. Traffic up was OK but going home was kinda tedious! I took these with my Canon 70D and a telephoto lens. I wasn't planning on trying to take pictures, so I didn't do much research or planning. But decided to bring my camera because capturing moments is part of who I am. I'm glad I got a couple of good shots :0)

Great pics. I was there but didn't have anything to record the event. Was worth the trip though. Like you said, the trip home was tedious.

Doubt many care at this late date, but there was a video - Only 2017 / 2024 Eclipse video taken from the exact conjunction spot:
