Turn around, bright eyes
I stayed up to watch the eclipse last night.
Of course, I didn't get to see that view.
It was a crystal clear night here in Atlanta right up until it started...then the clouds rolled in. So the next couple hours or so consisted of me and one of my neighbors standing out in the parking lot at various intervals waiting for random slivers of open sky to catch a very brief glimpse of it...finally just giving up and going to bed around 3 am.
For those of you who missed it, here is a cool video that someone put together with a lovely ethereal soundtrack.

Next time, I'll go to bed early and just wait for the whole experience to show up on the Internets.
