I watched it on TV and saw no sunspots on the solar disk and during totality, there were no flares or prominences which should have been on the edge of the disk. The Sun is cooling to counteract global warming.

There were flares all around the eclipse. That was the highlight.

What you saw was the Corona which is a hot diffuse plasma gas that constantly surrounds the Sun all of the time. Please ask pensacolaniceman for verification.

I'm not sure of the percentage, but they are indeed scientists.

Here in Pensacola we got about an 80% coverage; however, it never got that dark.

Not all topics are political in nature here. Look at the topics in the forum section.

No solar flare was visible. A few prominences were visible but required magnification. As TS said, the corona was visible to the naked eye and it was spectacular. I could barely move while watching it.

One of the best photos I've seen of Monday's eclipsed sun.

Have you seen this gem??

https://www.yahoo.com/news/donald-tr...141127381.html

Donald Trump has proven to have absolutely zero restraint or common sense when it comes to his social media posts, but today he took the his Twitter habit to a whole new level.

On Thursday morning, the U.S. president retweeted an eclipse meme of himself, as a white president, "eclipsing" Barack Obama, the nation's first black president.

It's a retweet so dumb that it may just beat the time he retweeted someone calling him a fascist.

The meme, posted by a user in response to a Trump tweet about Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, shows a smiling Trump gradually moving in front of a black and white photograph of Obama.
Thanks from Camelot

And apparently Trump doesn't know what an eclipse is. It's a dead, airless rock briefly blocking the light from a much larger source of brightness.

Actually a very apt analogy when you think about it.
