I am out here in Missouri, close to Kansas City visiting my elderly parents and watching the eclipse. We started the morning with thunderstorms, but the sky cleared out in time for the show! Totality! The other bright light is the planet, Venus. This is 1 minute before totality. Crescent shadows beneath the trees. We were on the southern end of totality, so the southern sky was fairly bright. The street lights and little solar-powered landscape lighting did turn on. Right before and right after totality we saw these crazy, wriggly shadows on the driveway. They are called "Shadow bands ". Over all, it was a truly amazing experience. I saw solar prominences and the corona shooting out into space. Pictures could never do it justice.
