  2. Fascinating stuff, Colleen. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, my friend.

  3. My son and his family will be in Columbia, Missouri to see it. I’ve been reading how awesome and mystical the eclipse is. Thanks for your information.

  4. I’m always fascinated by cosmology events! In Northern California we saw a partial solar in 2012. My daughters are both heading to Portland to view the total eclipse. Can’t wait to use my new camera!

    • Oh, lucky you. I am going to be standing by to see if there is any change in the fairy community that lives near me. I want to record whether it affects them or not… Have a great time. Lucky you! <3
