Thanks for starting this thread, Sabertooth.
Eclipse is underway as seen in clear skies from western VA. The forecast this morning called for mostly cloudy skies. Sure am glad they were wrong.
I'm interested in folks' perceptions of the color of the eclipse. Will the CA fires redden it up?
Doesn't appear so at the moment, all looks black and white and many shades of gray.

Seeing the same thing here. Moon close to half dark, no red at this time. Maybe the light from the uneclipsed side is drowning out the redness right now, and we will see it go red near totality.
I'm seeing a nice blue halo on the right hand side. It looks like a willy wonka gob swapper!
