Awesome

Shadow bands,  Bailey's beads, diamond ring effect, falling temperatures. Pictures tomorrow.  I had the 5" refractor set up with solar filter.  You could see the unevenness of the Moon's edge, which causes Baily's Beads.  Venus was oppressively bright at the zenith.  Alas, I did not remove the ND filter in time to get the corona.
