I went to see the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, and chose to see it from Madras, OR. I am primarily a photographer, so my focus was on still images. (If you want to see the still shots and some time lapse, check out this video: vimeo.com/236179346).
Still, I had several video cameras running, and have been able to see details in them I didn't catch in person. For example, you can see Mt. Jefferson to our west going into shadow before the eclipse reaches us, and I found it very interesting to watch the sunset-like cloud changes to the east during totality. As a result I put together this multi-camera shot showing both the surroundings as well as some tighter shots of the eclipse itself. You can also tell a lot about what is happening by listening to the sounds of the airplanes and the crowds in the nearby field.
While this video certainly won't win any awards for the camera work (I was late getting the solar filters off during totality, as my focus was on the still cameras), I've still watched in multiple times to see what all was going on in the environment. I'll also mention that the tight shots of the sun (upper-right of the screen) were done with a camera on an equatorial mount, and the camera was aligned with the mount which was tilted relative to the horizon. What that means is that on this shot the moon moves from top to bottom across the sun, while in reality the moon was coming in from the upper right and exiting on the lower left.
