On the morning of the eclipse, we checked the weather and it was going to be cloudy, so we had to drive 2 hours to find clear skies. We all wore special glasses to see it or we would be blind. When the moon blocked the sun it turned dark outside and cold as well and some of the house lights outside turned on and the sun looked like a black hole. We saw Venus during the day.
We also saw a stealth bomber fly in front of the partially eclipsed sun which was awsome to see.
It was worth it to drive 2 hours to see the eclipse.
