    In DC, we got about 90%...with it being a bit cloudy.
    But we got more than enough gaps to see it well from start to finish and a few photos with a special lens too.

    I was thinking of going to upstate NY or VT to see the totality, but there were too many risks with weather and too cold to do an overnight in my car. (no rooms available for sane prices)
    I saw the last eclipse in full 7 years ago at the max time, in KY. So it wasn't as much of a push to do it again.

    Next one globally is in 2026 in Iceland and Spain. (Iceland is a wonderful place to go, I wouldn't mind going again at all. And Spain is right next to Portugal, where I want to go next)

    I watched news story that said mentioned something I hadn't heard before. Total eclipses occur about every 1.5 years, but many of them happen over water, and some in obscure areas.

    Edit: I saw footage of the full eclipse, very cool event.
