Another cool way that I got to view the eclipse was from a neighbor who let me borrow their welding glass. I had tried to get a pair of those special eclipse viewing glasses but it was too late to order a pair at the time I found out about the eclipse. I had used them when I viewed the partial eclipse in 1991 and wish I had a pair this time. The neighbor having welding glass was definitely a nice treat!

The coolest thing about this eclipse, however, was viewing the shadows that were cast by the leaves on the trees. The leaves on the trees acted like little "pin hole cameras." Even my little two-year old thought it was "cool."
