Here's a quick animation and some still images I took from Shanghai. It rained during totality. During totality, it turned as dark as midnight. When I was in Hawaii in 1991, totality was only twilight-dark. There's a link to an avi file on this page. It was made by one of the astronomers I was watching with. You can see me in the video a few times! It's a large file and might take a long time to load. But it does an excellent job showing the umbrella-clutching crowd experiencing totality. Day changes to night and back to day in just a few minutes.
