Terrifying clouds

When an total eclipse is coming and the shadow is moving the last thing you want to see is clouds. I am glad that the clouds parted and observers in China saw totality!!!

Sue and I saw the live event in Kansas , 6 am from the internet site on our
computers. The Blacksun chasers observe totality in
mostly cloudless event in Russia.

In China , clouds flitted over the sun but disappeared
mostly during totality. I am happy that the event was
successful for them, Corona and diamond ring and the
approaching darkness was shown.
It was nice to see the events in both places on the
computer and then later on CNN in China. Their replays
in the Exploratorium and NASA websites

But wish I was there. Can't wait to see photos.
