So, I never did buy glasses, but I did make my own viewing box where I will see the eclipse inside of the box. Hope it works. We have partly sunny weather right now, so hopefully its sunny at the time. Im in central Indiana, so I should get about 89%.

Just a piece of paper with one or more holes poked through it works well. I got some good pictures; have to wait til tonight to upload them, though.

Keryx made a viewing box this morning and it worked. So we went outside and watched the eclipse and picked tomatoes from the garden.

Yeah, my box worked pretty good, too... Up until the peak, and then it was total cloud coverage. I did see the sun at a thin crescent tho, so I'm happy. I was able to take pics too, some are nice. I'll try to post them.

My box worked ok but the glasses were really great. One guy had a welders mask and a female cow-orker had the card stock with hole.

From the 75% coverage area, I rate this event 3/4 stars out of 1.
