The Great American North American Total Solar Eclipse.

The last call for totality was in my small home town of Houlton Maine. Where am I in Maine? A little further north than Kittery and you made it to Bar Harbor Maine? Keep going.

Everyone want to experience totality... not a partial eclipse but total darkness.

Here's one of my photos of totality in Houlton Maine.

Houlton Maine is smack dab positioned at the start of Interstate 95 and was lucky enough to be in the eclipse epicenter.

Aroostook County is the largest county east of the Mississippi River and surrounded by Canada on three sides.

Private jets reported to be owned by Adam Sandler, Oprah and even Taylor Swift were among the many at Houlton International Airport.

Did not rub shoulders with those celebrities but maybe their aircraft made the trip without the stars on board to witness the Maine total solar eclipse.

Many last minute FAA flight changes to go north and everyone wanted guarantees for their private jet, turbo prop or Cessna class puddle jumper.

That all would be able to touch down in Houlton International Airport.

We started fine, but then it got very overcast, and the clouds covered the sun. That teddy was certainly well protected, however.

Good afternoon Andrew,

I love the positivity of your post and the teddy bear was a perfect ending. I loved that the whole world was excited about the totality of the eclipse happening everythere! It was good to see such positivity, the smiles and excitment in a country and world that has moved into such a divided environment! Great day for us all and thank you for sharing your experience in Houltan Maine!

So much fun and folks flying, driving, hitch hiking, all headed to Houlton Maine for 100% totality darkness. Lucky everything cooperated like a successful space mission. NASA was here too Dorie Dillard Austin TX ! How did where you were in Texas make out weather wise? Not so lucky?

It sounds like you had a wonderful time at the eclipse! Apparently the 2044 one will be going right over my area of Montana - so that will be interesting!

     Totality is an experience. No matter what everyone has for differences, issues, likes or dislikes... it all goes away from the light to dark to light eclipse that unifies.

     Very humbling and unifying Kat Palmiotti ! So so many planes flew in.. big ones, little ones, jets, turboprops and cars lined up for 7 miles.

Money not the goal and making sure safety, memorable time and putting the small Maine town and Aroostook County on the map. Return trips, making sure everyone had fun and a quality visit is the key to hospitality and rolling out the red welcome mat Brian England !

this sounds like it was a lot of fun - I enjoyed the eclipse here in DC - it was only a partial but still fun and i didn't have to drive or fly anywhere - Your view must have been amazing
