These are some impressions from the recent solar eclipse in April of 2024. I went up to northern New Hampshire and had picture perfect weather with no clouds except a few on the horizon. The partial eclipse is exciting, especially seeing how the camera records the linear loss of light, but the human eye keeps compensating for it until the very end. Only during the last few minutes do we feel it gets darker. And then, during the last few seconds, darkness suddenly descents, the temperature drops and the wind stops. It is an eerie, yet wonderful experience and seeing the corona come out is just amazing. The light during totality is lovely, as it is not completely dark, more like twilight: dark above, and afterglow all around the horizon.
