One way to view the eclipse was through a hole in cardboard and then watch the moon move across the sun in the shadows. At the center point, could definitely see ring of light around the moon.

Don't have filter for my camera, so couldn't take a really cool photo. It was darker than normal, leaving dark shadowy clouds. But, without the glasses couldn't really tell a difference in sun.
