I do understand. Obviously i dont REALLY know what a total eclipse is like having never seen one. My comment was about the partial eclipse that is gonna be visible. I know it aint as impressive.....................but its impressive none the less.

I wouldn't bet too much on that. I remember a lack of funds and all that in 1999 meant I had to resort to watching a partial from a field in Tullamore. Yeah, it was interesting for a first partial eclipse, but I can't see myself getting excited by another one again. Not since seeing a total one. ;)

Completely understand your thinking. I'll most likely feel the same when i see my 1st total eclipse.
