I have no idea what video is being discussed.
Here you go:
I just found this 360° video. It looks exactly as you've described it.
I'm still reviewing the whole issue myself here (+haven't checked out fully your new post yet either).

And once in awhile, one will start doing a weird noise, that sounds like a cow version of a cat coughing up a fur ball. Which made me laugh, as I wondered then, if cows make that noise, because they're coughing up grass balls?"
In a way, they are. They are regurgitating their "cud". But unlike cats which expel the regurgitated hair ball, after chewing the cud, the cows re-swallow it. This is a normal part of the digestive process for ruminants like cows. Quite a familiar sound and sight to this farm-raised boy.

Ummmm....
And on that note, I have decided NOT to fly off to Buenos Aires.

I guess I'm still too "city slickerish". ?:):woot::eek:

[not sure which one of those emotis best emotes a 'barf' feeling, but I'm sure you get the picture.]

Don't give on the idea so quickly, you might want to ruminate on it for a while.

That was one of the things I discovered while researching the eclipse. Though I was mostly wondering if any satellites would be flying by during the eclipse. I saw that the ISS was about an hour late in crossing paths with totality.

Eclipse here was around 10:20 am.
Image courtesy of NASA's Eyes software.

I didn't bother thinking about capturing it during the partial phase. I'm glad someone did.

A couple of points of interest in the photo I got. The colored dots on the edge of the disk are caused by solar prominences. ( I didn't realize this until I saw some higher res photos that showed them clearer in those positions.
I also caught the star Regulus in the shot. it is the white dot in the lower left of the image.

[Yup. That's Regulus off to the upper left.
He was about 10 miles to my west during the eclipse]

Still no word/images from Miloslav Druckmuller.
This is one of my greatest regrets about the eclipse.
I drove through Mitchell, and there were no parking spots within 1/2 mile of downtown.
I was worried, that if I parked, someone would steal everything from the back of my pickup truck.
About 4 hours later, on the drive home, I realized that, although the bed was full, the total value of everything was about $15.
Sigh.......

The last time all of my camping gear was stolen, about 30 years ago, I upgraded, and was really happy about that.
And yes, my camping gear is now all 30 years old.
Should have parked.

As I suspected, he has the most stunning image I've seen so far.

Corona from [Mitchell] Oregon , about 7 miles from where I was.
Composition of 161 eclipse images taken with two cameras.

No wonder it took him a month!

The following had me quite confused up until now.
I knew his team was going to be in two locations, and the other one was to be Whisky mountain.
There is a "Whiskey Mountain" about 50 miles from Mitchell, but it was outside of totality.
His Whiskey Mountain is in Wyoming, 520 miles away, and was dead centerline of the eclipse.

Corona from Whiskey mountain
Coordinate N 43° 25.234', W 109° 37.883', Alt. 3165 m
