So there, we have had the partial eclipse. It was quite fun. We had a pretty good view, and good weather from the office windows and I quickly put together a pinhole camera to view the eclipse safely with.
The human eye is a fantastic thing and adjusts for an amazing number of light levels, so while it seemed to get a little darker, it was not until you checked with a light meter you could see how dark it had really gotten.
Afterwards I logged into my homes solar panel system and as you can see in the above chart, the dip at 9.30 matches the eclipse.
