It's eclipse day! The forecast for Columbus, Ohio (where we will experience 86% occlusion) is mixed. We might see it, might not. The main eclipse event (here) will be from about 1-4, with the main eclipse event at about 2:30.
The Skyclock app shows us that the Sun will be highest in the sky today at 1:35 at 62 degrees of elevation.
NASA has a great website for everything eclipse related, and an ongoing webcast, and observations from the International Space Station. Check it out!
At the corner of 5th and Vine, in the heart of downtown Cincinnati (across from Fountain Square) are 2 public clocks that illustrate the eternal design question of whether to favor function or form.
The iconic TIffany clock greets visitors to the store on the northwest corner. The clock is held up by a carved rendering of Atlas, and is a copy of the original in New York from the late 1930s. It is impressive and beautiful. It is facing out from the canted building corner and so in a sense, is only visible to those heading (or looking) straight in to the store.
