It got dark

In February 1979, I happened to be working in Winnipeg, Manitoba when a total eclipse passed by. Talk about being lucky. I borrowed the portable TV from my motel room and hooked it up in the radio site where I was working to monitor coverage. I was in a remote area so absolutely no other people (noise!) were around. Outside when the full eclipse happened, it got quite dark, birds chirping went silent, the breeze picked up. I saw the dark band race across the landscape. I saw the whole meal deal with the diamond ring effect. No special glasses but I kept making quick glances up and even took a couple photos. The experience is quite different from a partial eclipse. I would travel if possible to experience another total eclipse.
