    The girls in nursing cut up x-ray film to look through, worked pretty well.

    Clear shot, sunny day. It got dim and noticeably cooler, other than that kind of anticlimactic.

    I thought I would see something here, just got kinda hazy.
    I believe in the Sun, even at night. I believe in love, even when I am alone. I believe in God, even when He is silent. (Especially , then)

    Got to 93% here. Was kinda strange. It was still broad daylight but dim, like you were wearing strong sunglasses.

    The gaps between leaves act like a pinhole camera, every sun-dapple an arc showing how much of the sun was covered.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    You got a lot more than me, I noticed a slight haze, like I see when a big fire is near.
