Pre-totality darkening, during partial phase of eclipse. Sun not directly visible due to clouds. Rain ended about 15 minutes prior to totality, which began at 11:11 AM local (daylight) time.

The sky getting brighter again to the west just after the end of totality. Part of the sun's inner corona did shine through the clouds during totality, which I watched in binoculars but did not photograph. Totality lasted for about two minutes.

A crescent sun, as seen through the clouds, just a couple of minutes after the end of totality.
