Sooo, the total eclipse, here in Reno, was spectacular. It lasted longer than all the others I've seen. Above is what the Sun looked like from my desk chair out the window just as it began. At 4:30 you can just barely see the Moon's shadow touch the Sun.
Then the cloud came in. The cloud stayed there until just after the event. I have Photoshopped what the eclipse would have looked liked had the cloud not been there - that image is below the fold.
