I was able to find a few (I expected many more) home videos of people on the ground, recording their surroundings. It was so cool to hear everyone's reaction as the sky darkened, rather dramatically. Some recorded the 360 degree "sunrise" and I found a few drone videos as well, with a spectacular view of the horizon. Yes, it was magnificent! "Behold, the Heavens declare the glories of God"

I can't wait to see what you are able to upload from your radio spectrum recordings! :) It's so cool to discover how the eclipse affects even the invisible things! (Radio signals)

While driving to a Dr appointment during our peak eclipse (only 67%) I tried one station where I know there is frequent skywave interference at each end of the day... not a trace.

WOW is all I have to say...  I have seen a couple of partial eclipses but yesterday's total was an awesome experience.  It is easy to understand how the ancients got so shook up over them.

It looks like the loop receiver at the center of totality received the signals much weaker but several minutes longer than the much larger 80m OCF dipole at the shop.

The number of cool things to do with the recordings is almost overwhelming.
