Saw it in northwest Pennsylvania, within the totality zone. Spectacular. I saw the 2017 eclipse, again from within the totality zone, and this one was better.

I don't have a bucket list, but I just started one & crossed off the first item. An awesome day. And I  bonded with people who I will never see again.

Pretty cool here in Cleveburg.  Just out in the yard.

Didn't have the special glasses.  Took two pairs of polaroid suns and held them 90 degrees opposed to each other and was able to see the progression.  Slightly rotating the lenses also changed the colors visible as well as the definition.

Then total.  No glasses needed and the flares were easily visible and one was very, very red.

We had two partials back in 93 and 94.  Kind of a yawn.  This was different to be sure.

A total eclipse of the sun was never on my bucket list, but this was definitely a wonderful thing to witness.
