Megyn Shares Her Experience Taking in the Solar Eclipse with Her Kids

Did you enjoy the eclipse? My assistant Abby and I saw it along with my family, and it was eh. You know, it was good. It was fine. We weren’t in the path of totality in Connecticut, but I know a lot of you in that path had an amazing experience so God bless.

2017 vs. 2024

Back in 2017, I was working at NBC and took in the eclipse from the observation deck at 30 Rock with Abby and some of our colleagues. 

This time, I decided to take the kids out of school a little early so we could all watch it together. I just love the thought of the whole nation coming together and getting excited about something, whether it is a huge sporting event or an eclipse.

I will say, it was kind of cool standing out there with the fam and watching the light change. It was like a weird yellow color and then, before you knew it, it was kind of dark. It felt like not quite twilight, but a little closer to twilight than it should have been at that hour of the day.

It was also neat for the sun to look normal until you put on the eclipse glasses. With the glasses, you could completely see the moon moving over the sun. As I posted on X yesterday though, the whole thing kind of gave me a headache.

Get Ready for 2044

All in all, I give it two thumbs up. Abby is more lukewarm. 

My husband tells me the next total eclipse is in 2044, and Montana is in the path of totality. We have a place there, so we will get off of our asses and travel to the proper place for that one. I will report back in 20 years.
