Definitely felt as if life force was thinning out – stretched. Felt sick for days after and the atmosphere and air still feel different. I was in 98% totality and only popped outside for moments at a time to view the eclipse. It did become very cold and the eerie dead color could not be captured on camera. There were no animals around – all hiding and very quiet. My brother decided he wanted to be in totality so he took a short drive to be there. He said he felt so sick it was disorienting. I don’t know about all this talk about connecting with God during this eclipse – it felt quite the opposite. Aboriginal cultures of the past made a point of taking shelter during these types of astrological events as they understood this powerful force would have a negative effect on their bodies.
