observatory, the local K-index did not exceed level 4.
Thursday, August 24, we expect at most unsettled conditions.  Next
day, Friday, August 25, we expect geomagnetic activity decrease to
quiet to unsettled level.
Quiet to unsettled conditions are predicted for the rest of forecast

Did you witness the eclipse on Monday?  I found a group of my
neighbors gathered on the street corner after 1700 UTC, and they had
one of those taped-together box arrangements for projecting the
image.  We were in Seattle, north of the band of darkness that
spread over northern Oregon.  Someone drove by with a box of those
special safe eclipse glasses, and they worked very well.
Reports from friends who travelled to Madras, in Eastern Oregon’s
Jefferson County reported that in the middle of the totality band
they saw the sky go totally dark, and stars illuminated the sky.
Scott Craig, WA4TTK of Nashville, Tennessee sent this, along with a
link to eclipse photos he took:
“Thought you might like these.  They are photos of Monday’s eclipse
taken here in Nashville.  I took them and keep looking at them
because I find them fascinating.”
