|Athena in the backyard at 1:05 p.m.|
Eclipse was supposed to peak around 1:05 p.m. our time. I z.ipped home for lunch with the dual purpose of eating and also taking Athena out for a walk. I remember the eclipse from back in 1979. I was in class at school when it occurred. Most of our teachers didn't take us outside although I learned after school that some of the science classes had gone out to observe with simple viewers of two sheets of paper, one with a hole punched in it, use to "look" at the eclipse over shoulders. I remember it getting darker outside for the one from 1979. For this one it seemed to stay quite light despite the fact we had about 75% coverage although who knows what time has done to the memory of the last one. It was 38 years ago.
