Two things….

First:
We went to SC to see the full eclipse yesterday. It was very cool.

On one level it was a bit disappointing, however.
There were no zombies.
The Earth’s magnetic poles didn’t reverse.
Planet X didn’t fly past and disrupt the Earth’s orbit and cause widespread devastation.
The world didn’t end.

All things considered, it was a great trip and a great day. Now we’re gearing up for the 2024 eclipse.


Second:
A friend sent me this picture of the 82nd Airborne making their mark on the eclipse. Very, very cool!

Apparently this picture is a composite. I didn't know that but the local paper verified it. Still a cool picture - good marketing on their part.
