    Be sure and get video, including how dark it is around you. Man, I wish I could be there.

    How will Regulus, the moon, the sun and Virgo line up on September 23rd? (St. Pio’s feast day)

    Am camping on family farm right in the path. Went kayaking, played music, went to Mass, all with the family. Am going shooting this evening so we are all warmed up in case the moon or some bad aliens do something nefarious under cover of darkness. Otherwise we are ready with MOONshine, MOONpies, MILKY WAY candy bars, BLUEMOON beer, and seafood caught (I was told) on the tide. We are having a party and all good aliens are welcome.

    simple reminder. just after totality dont forget to remove filters from binocs and or camera. i tried to find the sun/moon without removing filters in my excitement. also cover the eye piece of camera with filter film. or even cover with elec tape, etc.

    RichR: “Man, I wish I could be there.”

    Those of us readers on the European continent (well, its extreme western periphery in my case) second that emotion! I’ve only ever seen one, back in 1999, round about mid-day in July, I think, during what passed for a relatively good summer i.e. not cloudy and overcast on the day. We were all allowed out on the roof at work to view it, provided we had protective glasses – the Health & Safety people were insistent. It was quite… chilling, in many ways. But memorable.

    That’s what I think!

    Where’d you decide to watch from, Father?

    This was true first time I’ve been able to get on the internet all day. They warned us that with so many people in town, internet connectivity would be difficult, and boy they weren’t kidding.

    I hope you have clear skies today

    BTW, have you heard about Makanda, Illinois? Apparently it is the place where the path of totality for both this eclipse and the one in 2024 will intersect. Kind of interesting.
