Yeah I had no idea that 72% coverage would leave outside looking so 'normal' for daytime hours.PointsHubby wrote: ↑ This was my experience as well in Eastern Ontario... A very subtle change, nothing dramatic.
Certainly nothing like the photo that @CenturyBreak posted above.
Got much darker here today in the midst of the huge thunderstorm that passed over this morning.
I remember vividly the various eclipses in my life (solar & lunar).
The various solar eclipses I saw in the 70s were mind blowing... Especially the one that was total. It actually became twilight in the Montreal area in the middle of the day.
Yesterday was by contrast... Hugely disappointing (hype here far out weighed reality).
Looking forward to the next TOTAL Solar Eclipse that is due to happen over Eastern Canada in April 2024 (hope it is a clear weather day for optimum viewing)
As total eclipses are so rare, 2024 will probably be my last opportunity to see one in my lifetime (unless I travel to catch one elsewhere)
As for 2024, there will be tons of potential viewing locations right in Canada alone.
What CenturyBreak posted did happen in Ontario, if you looked for it. It was just too easy to miss because you need the right conditions with a flat surface.
