Sun is shining....blue sky....but it's rather dark in the house.
It looks weird.....even the eclipse in the early 90s didn't look this dim.
It's like there is a grey filter over everything.

What's it like by you?

SE Michigan/NE Ohio area 2:01 EDT

ETA
the temp outside also dropped 3 degrees in the last hour or so....we have a thermometer outside the kitchen window.

Are you in the path of totality? Because if you are, the approaching shadow is the most awesome part of experiencing a total eclipse. Don't blink! It only lasts a second!

Here's a video

West Michigan but very cloudy. The woman is getting a few photos when the opportunity presents itself.

No, we're not that close.
But it is dimmer now than it was 10 minutes ago.
Very weird.

No wonder ancient peoples freaked when this happened.

I'm on West Coast. We had about 90% total, eclipse. It did get darker inside.

I was watching deer; a doe and two fawns eating shrubs. I was hoping to see their reactions as the eclipse progressed. Unfortunately, some other guy saw the deer and started taking pictures of them while walking toward them. They ran away.

I didn't have glasses, but a cherry tree was able to cause several camera obscura images on a wall. That was cool.

Central Illinois and it's pretty dim here too. Of course, we had a storm roll in a little while ago, just in time to block us observing and we can't see jack, but there's not enough cloud cover to account for how dark it is.

Used welding glasses over the lens to take pics.
Pittsburgh is my location.🤗🤗🤗


Will download later.


Edit: it's dark inside and outside. Kind of like the dark color before a storm.

Massachusetts, same as you describe right now at 2:50, really dim, but blue skies and sunny. When look at sun it still looks bright as hell and can only look for a second or two.

It got dimmer here as it approached maximum 90%

The shadows from the leaves were cool, they all turned into overlapping crescents . I got a pic


Over here now in Vancouver

It was like that here, also. And outside, everything had a strange tint to it...like the unreal quality of bad movie lighting. The cicadas stopped singing too, which added to the whole strangeness. We only got 61%, but it got really dim...everyone was talking about it.

A great picture in St. Louis. Multiple exposure.



Beautiful

I'm in Tennesee and was right smack dab in the middle of totality. It was truly something else. It was like an odd late evening twilight, but universal in coverage. The security light on my telephone pole with the photocell kicked on, just like at night. It confused the hell out of the crickets to.

Whole thing noticeably lasted a bit over an hour.
The darkest was after the 2:18 time.

Didn't notice any weird bird or insect issues.
Strangest was the 4 degree temperature dip....which has slightly rebounded by now.

The crickets here started chirping as soon as it got dark and then stopped as soon as the sun came back. Everyone I was with commented on it because it was so odd. We were in the path of totality in SC.

I caught a bit of it flying to Cincinnati, the sky darkened noticeably around 1:45 or so as we were closing in on CVG.

It got dark and the street lights all came on.

Thing was that it was so humid out that we didn't get any temp drop. If any wants to understand the greenhouse effect of water vapor ... this was a good example!

The way the sky was sort of rosy off to the south was kind of cool, but there were too many clouds to really see any stars. We did get a few good glimpses of the totality itself though through the cloud cover.
