That's what I was thinking when I wrote first this morning. I had seen a mostly eclipse many years ago. Can't remember what percentage it was but there was like this whole other thing at total. It was like and hour or two after sundown. The tree frogs started going off. The bullfrogs went off. The dog got nervous because she's not allowed out after dark because we don't want the coyotes to eat her.
A minute or two before I wasn't impressed either but I can see far enough that I could see the shadow coming and then pow...dark. Impressive. Wish everybody could see one of those in their life.
It was an entirely different thing.
