People Are Pouting Because They Can't See The Eclipse Through Fog

On Monday, an ultrarare solar eclipse will be visible from several parts of the US. Naturally, people are hyped!

However, some people are freaking out because they woke up eager to see the phenomenon, and were met with fog.

Oh huh. Ground zero of #Eclipse2017: total eclipse of the fog in Lincoln City, turning back to find sun.

People in places like Government Point, Oregon, where the total eclipse will begin, were praying for sun, especially those who travelled to the state specifically to see the eclipse.

Biggest crowds I've seen all weekend - all hoping the fog will burn off here at Government Point.

Some were optimistic, as fog began to lift.

Sunrise on the Oregon Coast. Fog is lifting. Blue skies above. #SolarEclipse2017 #Eclipse #Eclipse2017

Come OOOONNN.

We're going to need this fog to burn off #SolarEclipse @MMSmavericks

Will it burn off in time? Please?

The question here on the Oregon coast is not "do you have your eclipse glasses" it is "will the fog lift in time to use them". #EclipseDay

Others were not feeling so lucky.

Got whiteout fog here. May not even see eclipse here!

Take San Francisco, where Karl the Fog was of course being his normal asshole self.

UGH WHY.

#SolarEclipse Timeline: 9:01am: Eclipse begins 9:02-11:14: "All I see is darker fog" 11:15: Eclipse ends 11:19: Skies clear 11:20: 🤦🏽‍♀️

People in the Pacific Northwest also were feeling cheated.

Major fog this morning. No eclipse viewing for me #Whidbeyisland

All that prep for nothing.

@Steven_Chappell >prep the boat >buy eclipse viewers >get up at 8am >fucking fog everywhere The PNW strikes again.

This really is not fair.

The sun didn't trust the 831 & put brought hella fog/clouds. At least no one will go blind today? Huh but still, I wanted to see the eclipse

Some were pissed.

Me, trying to watch this eclipse through the fog

WTF.

Is the fog rlly gonna fuck this solar eclipse up for me 😑

And some people reveled in the misery of others.

Stupid neighbor spent $20 on cheap eclipse glasses. Fog isn't clearing up today. Lol..should've checked the forecast first! #SolarEclipse

Here's hoping Mother Nature is nice to us!

Noooo I hope this fog goes away before the eclipse. I have my cameras all set up, please Mother Nature clear out for the moment later on
