You think that's bad, I was looking to hire someone to do some finite element modeling on a project of mine, so I did a search on the line, "FEM Analysis". That acronym is recognized and innocent; however, some of the results were not (pedophiles lurking).

There is a toe nail shaped section of the sun blocked, and it's getting bigger. Started exactly on schedule, 9:13AM.

Not sure why everyone's excited about seeing an eclipse, I see em all the time. They're kinda ugly to be honest.

It's really cloudy here too but we can still see the sun barely for now. It's already started and you can see the moon starting to cross. The 2024 eclipse is supposed to hit very close to us also

It peaked and it's getting brighter here. Get ready for a very noticeable temp drop, awkward in that it happens pretty fast so you'll notice radiant heat coming off thngs but the air will cool quickly.

Meanwhile, in other smoking hot news......

Pot shops field questions about what to smoke for the eclipse

Cliff notes: "...go ahead and light up, with your glasses on."

Got cool pretty quick. We have solar intensity meters, sand they went down to about 12% of what it would normally be. Be sure to look at the shadows. Shadows become very sharp, and much more clearly defined during an eclipse.

The shadows got perfectly crip on the south side and faded to fuzzy on the north! Wicked!
