We used shade 5 & 10 welding glass overlaid, worked okay for a quick look. About 85% at totality here, can still a sliver out of the sun now if you use a pinhole thingie.

We used some "eclipser glasses" that I got at UNR planetarium on Saturday. Took some pictures through the glasses which came out OK at best.
About 20mins after the "ring of fire" started turning into a crescent, some clouds blocked the sun, but we got to see it. :D
