Mulling over the things I have to say to Pops to make him feel comfortable taking a shower by himself tomorrow.Since his heart attack last month,he's been terrified of falling.He's more worried about me hurting my back than he is about himself.

 The time of sponge baths must go,and he must regain his dignity once more(said in a Gandalf type voice).

 Luckily,he feels comfortable knowing our Sasquatch sized friend,who he's known for ~50 years, will be here for backup should things go awry.

This isn't my first eclipse. I've seen the shadow part with the naked eye, I've seen it through pinholes, I've seen it in little half moons of dappled sunlight filtering through leaves of a tree....If it was THAT significant today, why couldn't we just see it FFS?
 
 
Not doing a good job of letting go, am I?

Yes, you should have seen some definition but you need to get the aperture small and a reasonable range for the focal length.

It would have appeared as the bottom due to the pinhole, but it was actually the top. Using a pinhole aperture on a camera is really tricky-  no matter the pixel count, it's really the size of the sensor that matters. iPads and phone cameras have tiny sensors. You would probably have been better off using the pinhole aperture to project on a sheet of white paper and taking a picture of that.

I used a pinhole aperture....still couldn't really tell. Which portion of the sun was occluded? There was a moment when it looked like the bottom left (7 o clock), but I think it was my imagination.

 
 
I guess I'm disappointed because we actually had fairly clear skies and the CHANCE to see it, but it didn't work somehow. You could be right about the glare...that is what one of my coworkers suspected. A member of the Science team across the office didn't speculate.

Top. Through a pinhole it would look like the bottom.

I'm guessing glare, but then I'm not SFW.

A pinhole aperture is best for viewing. We got a few glimpses in between the clouds, but then the rain came and drove us all back inside.

  If it makes you feel any better that's 5 seconds more than the sun's been out here this afternoon.  You're practically in the rain forest though aren't you?  Weren't you sort of expecting it?

The sun is shining through a very thing cloud layer - so we can definitely see it - but we didn't notice any 61%!? (We were viewing through an iPad camera, so it wouldn't hurt our eyes)
 
 
And OMSI said 3:03pm was peak viewing. Hmmm.  
 
 
SFW...why aren't we seeing more?
