Raw audio of the solar eclipse soundscape at 92% totality just north-west of Jacksonville, Florida in Callahan. This recording is the third part of the 1st recording that was started at 1:23PM (a few minutes after the start of the eclipse) and ends at 2:20PM. An unfortunate storm and cloud cover rolled in mere minutes before the event began. Nevertheless, this was what it sounded like in Callahan.

The audio is raw except that I removed a few scattered seconds of artifacts and clicks as well as reduced the volume of a lightning strike. This is the original audio recording at 96kHz/24-bit stereo.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

You don't have to worry about crediting this sound if you are using it for non-commercial projects unless you want to (e.g. educational or non-profit activities), but if you use the sound for a commercial project you must credit the sound. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution for commercial projects, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Solar Eclipse, 92%, Part 1c (96).wav" by InspectorJ of Freesound.org

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder".

Originally recorded on 21st August 2017.
