Exeter gets two minutes of totality

Exeter had several extra visitors to view the eclipse on Monday.  Some even came up from towns like Beatrice that were overcrowded, cloudy and rainy to view in Exeter.  The skies were cloudy for most of the morning and just as the moon got within 15 minutes of covering the sun completely the skies cleared up for a perfectly defined shot of the eclipse.  When looking at the partial coverage in Exeter, viewers were able to see some of the clouds move across the moon and soon making for an extra special bonus.  Also, the 360 degree sunset was visible as the crickets began chirping as the skies darkened and cooled.
