Almost 90% coverage here with about a 3.5 degrees temp dip.  That and the somewhat dimmed afternoon sky was interesting.

Unfortunately there was a double fatal accident only 2 miles west of Valentine this morning on HW 20 which is a hop skip and jump  into Wyoming. I have a feeling one vehicle from Minnesota was heading west toward clear skies in Wyoming this morning.  Only speculation but with an event this large very possible.

A 19-year-old woman from Rosemount, who was about to start her sophomore year at Creighton University in Omaha, was killed Monday in a multivehicle crash on Interstate 80 in Omaha.

Joan Ocampo-Yambing was in the back seat of a Toyota Prius with three other Creighton students on I-80 when a semitrailer truck driver failed to notice that traffic had slowed down. The truck struck the back of the Prius, according to a news release from Omaha police.

The semi then hit another car and came to rest on top of it. That car hit the back of a roll-off trailer being pulled by another semi, police said.

The four students in the Prius and two people in the other car were taken to the hospital. Ocampo-Yambing died there. The others had injuries ranging from serious to critical, police said.

The accident happened shortly before 10 a.m. The Omaha World Herald reported Monday that traffic on I-80 was backed up with cars headed to see the eclipse.

In another story, the newspaper reported that Ocampo-Yambing was a computer science major who would have started her sophomore year this week. She boasted last week on Twitter about self-publishing a book of her poetry.

More than 800 people showed up at the Creighton campus Monday night for a memorial service for Ocampo-Yambing.

It has showed "Eclipse" or even lunar eclipse on the console before even when it hasn't been necessarily for my area. So thought this was "odd".

Same version of firmware as before?  No changes to location settings?

Does anyone know why my Vantage Vue Console is not saying SOLAR ECLIPSE today?   

Are you in the path of Solar Eclipse totality today?


I was within like 99% totality! 
It shows "new Moon"!   

Exactly.  An eclipse can only occur during a "new Moon".

My guess is that storing eclipse data based on location would require a lot of memory. Given the rarity of the event, it probably wasn't seen as a good use of engineering/programing resources and bill-of-materials cost for the memory needed to support the feature.

I got clouded out. Bummer. Had been waiting for this forever. It did get dark and colder. I say 1 95% eclipse.

Guess this will be my last time to try. 

Traffic on I35 was CRAZY. But in a good way. This many people interested in science is a good thing. The road home was packed from Lathrop, MO to Bethany, MO then slow in Iowa. It took me 4 hours to get from Latrop to DSM. Should only be about 2.5 hours.

HikVision has some software that works independently of any browser that accesses our HikVision cameras.  Download the appropriate 'NEW' version of the HikVision iVMS-4200 and install it.  No browser necessary, and the capabilities are far greater than the Camera/Browser-Based tool.

It worked for me, anyway.  The only downside is that unless this tool is installed on the computer you're using you can't configure the camera.
Hikvision US has a new updated version of the FREE iVMS4200
