Or not. We had been informed that this evening’s annular eclipse would be partially visible from the Midwest; that is, the sun would be partially obscured. Although rain had been predicted, this evening was sunny and cool. Well, if you live in a valley, as we do, you should learn not to count on the weather above you to be indicative of the weather out there in general. At the appointed time, we hopped into the car to drive to a hill with a good view. Driving up the hill, we realized that although there had been sun above our house, the entire western horizon was becoming obscured by heavy storm clouds.
A lovely, view, but we’ll have to gaze upon this celestial phenomenon, not to be repeated in our lifetime, on someone else’s website. *sigh*
To the south, it wasn’t too bad. Enjoy Wisconsin’s pastoral (pastural?) loveliness.
