Okay stop.... He may have something there! If the shadow of the moon is only 70 miles wide and not 2100, then the moon would only be like 250 miles away instead of the 238,000 miles that NASA said it was when they didn't really send astronuts up there! That explains a lot of things!

I find that if you have doubts about any one event, they all have to be questioned. I'm curious and just want to know the truth.
If you study deep enough into physics, you will realize that we do not actually exist. What you think of as reality is just the musings of a whirling bit of nothing. Past, present, Moon, coffee? None of it is really there. Nor is 'there' there.

Are you currently in a Lincoln with Matt Mcconaughey?

We actually almost Don't. Most of us, and everything around us is nothing, swimming around in a probability field. Next time you look at anything, realize what you are looking at is nothing, with just enough of a very little bit of something to make it look solid. It's the electric fields around the miniscule bits that fill in the gaps to make nothing seem like something. Remember that next time you bump your head.

I was east of Weiser out in the hills. Fantastic view on the shadow center line.

I was....

....west of CarHenge in Alliance, Nebraska. I was on the center line on top of a hill in the far western edge of the Sand Hills. Most amazing sight you could possibly imagine.

Iím already planning for 2024.

The photos are great! But I was unlucky to miss this event :c And also I missed it this year :c But no time to be sad. Hope I'll see more such eclipses in person. After all, I even decided to learn astronomy a bit. I read different articles about planets of the Solar system, about their satellites, about comets like Encke https://solarstory.net/comets/encke and so on. I do like all this stuff.
