I can't believe I didn't think to post this here.  A bit delayed, but here is what I got of the eclipse.

 

My goal was to capture a bit different view of the Earth when the shadow hit.  I figured there would be plenty of pictures and videos of the eclipse itself.

 

Not as cool as the videos from the high altitude weather balloons, but I didn't have a high altitude weather balloon.  So here's the view from 10,000 ft. over Nebraska.

That is actually very cool!  I wonder if the pilot gets to log night flight time while flying under the eclipse shadow?
