    Phones won't show much until it's in full totality, because the brightness of the sun will just glare and it looks like a full sun. But I was able to use my glasses over the camera and carefully find the sun on the screen without looking at the sky, and got this image (I live in western NC and we only got 98% coverage, so wasn't able to get any of the cool full totality images):

    Actually pretty cool. Was worried it would be the ball sac video but I took my chances and was glad I did.

    I recreated the eclipse in my office with a lamp and a coaster.

    Didn't even need glasses.

    https://www.assa.org.au/resources/solar-system-eclipses/solar-eclipses/

    'The frequency of solar and lunar eclipses
    A solar eclipse, especially a total one, can be seen from only a limited part of the Earth, while a lunar eclipse can be seen wherever the Moon is above the horizon.

    In most calendar years there are two lunar eclipses (there can be up to a maximum of three) or none may occur.

    Solar eclipses occur two to five times a year, five being exceptional. The average number of total solar eclipses in a century is 66 for the Earth as a whole.

    From any point on Earth, on the average you will experience no more than one total solar eclipse in three to four centuries.'
