Not really a lot

Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017

Greatest amount of sun covered by moon from where I was, 2.39 pm EDT - sunspots visible on left.

Earlier at 1.47 pm, showing several sunspots

It did get noticeably cooler and dimmer at maximum - the colours didn't change, just dimmed, so more like being inside on midday rather than evening.

Tiger and Patch

Tiger and Patch, early 2000s - Tiger was a male but didn't seem to mind other cats.

Saw refugees from the United States who just arrived, one woman with little girl, wearing their best dresses on Sunday as they walked around the place the government had placed them. It must be awful to arrive in an unknown place and not even be certain they can stay.
