It's hitting maximum in 3 minutes so I need to type this out fast. I'll be back to expand after it's over.
I think we should have mini competition to see who can get the best image of the total eclipse happening. I certainly won't win if this happens because I have shit equipment So this is more of a thing I guess to let me, and others see good pictures because we can't actually take good ones ourselves. If you're chilling outside and watching this once in an almost 3 decade event awesome! If you're not... then what the hell are you waiting for!

If the weather isn't working out in your favour I feel for you, and hopefully you can see some good pictures in here to make up for it.
My absolutely horrific picture.
Of course I can't find batteries for my big fancy canon because I didn't bother to check to see if I had any before this happened. So all I got is my phone fml.
I literally walked about a quarter mile in pitch black darkness with my huge telescopic binoculars to find[spoiler]out that that there was too much cloud cover to see anything, well, except red tinted clouds...[/spoiler]
