Not foggy enough to eclipse totality

The marine layer never ceases to surprise us.  From one minute to the next, we can go from clear to foggy, or the reverse.  So we didn't know what to expect for the solar eclipse this morning.

Early, it was clear, but then fog rolled in.

But once the eclipse began, we put on our glasses and viewed the solar show from our deck, facing east-ward.

Totality didn't last long, but was great to see.  The neighborhood was quiet except for a lot of gasps and little cheers when it happened, despite forecasts for overcast skies.

The light fog knocked out any chance we had of viewing stars during totality.
