Carol (carol_humboldt) | 90 comments I was fortunate to be in the path of totality for the solar eclipse on August 21st this year. It was amazing! I have 10 commemorative postcards to share if anyone would like. They are:
A second after totality, in color with the date - 2 postcards
The moment of totality in black and white, no date - 6 postcards
Seven views of eclipse, before and after (waxing and waning) including totality, in color, with date - 4 postcards.

Reply here with your choice of postcard and on private message with your address if you'd like to have one.

Megan (ReadingRover) | 95 comments If you have any left I’d love a postcard. If possible a color one or a black & white one is ok if you don’t have any color left. I’ll send you one in return. Thanks!

Alexandra Heep | 12 comments Hello! I just found this group and this topic. I was 4 hours from the path of totality, but did not have the glasses. We were supposed to have them, but it fell through ... long story.
Anyway, if you still have any cards, I would love one.

My first choice would be seven views color, but I am not picky!
Thanks!
Alexandra

Gala (galaer) | 26 comments Hi Carol!

I've just got the postcard. Thank you so much! It's gorgeous! And the experience sounds truly amazing. I always loved astronomy, and this is something I want to see someday. I hope that I'll have the opportunity to see something like that one day.

Again, thank you so much!

Gala

Tiffany PSquared (tiffanypsquared) | 50 comments Carol, thank you for the gorgeous postcard! I really enjoyed reading about your eclipse experience. It makes me excited for the next one, which I will travel to take my daughter to see (the totality event).
Thank you again for the nice postcard! ☺

Carol (carol_humboldt) | 90 comments So happy you liked it, and I might see you in 2024!

♥Nica♥ (nicanicanica) | 62 comments Hi Carol! I haven't witnessed the recent eclipse so I would be grateful if you could spare me a postcard, preferably the seven views one or anything! ^__^


message 28: by Alexandra Heep (new)

Alexandra Heep | 12 comments Hello Carol, I received the card today, thanks so much. It had the wrong P.O. Box number on it (one digit was wrong), but it still got delivered. I did see the partial one here in IL, but without the glasses. It was nothing like what you described though!

Carol (carol_humboldt) | 90 comments Oops, anyway, I was going to say I have a problem with numbers.


message 31: by Alexandra Heep (new)

Alexandra Heep | 12 comments It's all good. Can I send you something in return?

Of course! I love getting surprise mail!! (My address should be on the card; if not, let me know and I will message you.)

Hi Nica, Yes, I have one postcard left, and it's the 7 views. Message me your address, and I will send it.

Carol (carol_humboldt) | 90 comments All eclipse postcards have been sent out, none left. Thank you all for your interest!

The Book Granny (thebookgranny) | 30 comments I just picked up my post card, Carol. Thanks so much! It sounds like it was a wonderful experience. I think i will grab a seat for 2024! Over the next week or two, I also plan on sending a return card. :)
