I just saw the eclipse a couple hours ago! It was fascinating. I had forgotten about it, and was wondering why the light was weird, until my dad called, and said that there was a solar eclipse. He found a pinhole camera, and we used it to see the suns shadow, reflected off of a piece of paper. The shadows were interesting, with lots of little arcs or light covering them. It's kind of difficult to describe. I might post some pics later, but no promises.
