Well why not? 🤩

I’ve got 3 so far, 2 totals and 1 annular. Got a lot of catching up to do, and setting a goal of 10.

Keeping track of partials will drive you nuts.  They're as common as dandelions.

 

My log:

Total 1991 Mazatlan (actually Carnival cruise ship that sailed us back out to sea once the land was clouded out).  Ship surrounded by t-storms.

Annular 1994 Jefferson City, Missouri- completely cloud-free.

Total 1998  off Aruba after morning rain showers threatened land.  Saw eclipse in cloud-free sky from Carnival ship.

Total 2017 Pawnee City, Nebraska.  Missed C1 and 20 minutes of partial to rain and t-storms.  Saw all the good stuff through thin clouds.

Total 2024 Mazatlan.  Least cloud drama for any total so far.  Saw all of the eclipse through high, thin clouds.
