Re: No eclipse for me

Here in Springwater, NY it was actually comfortable and clear! That is statistically unusual and I was able to relax and watch from our back deck. Trusty old Genesis on Vixen Porta with JMI Train-N-Trak and a little Lunt camera ... laptop on a card table. It got quite dark at max eclipse and could easily enjoy the Milky Way, M31 etc. with the red moon hanging like a lantern. Based on my exposure times, I think Luna was more than 1000x darker eclipsed than not. Attached pic partial 9:20 pm EDT. Tom

It was partly cloudy here in Santa Clarita. I saw most of it leaning back on my vehicle while holding up 7 x 50 binoculars. It looked creepy at times with the clouds swirling like fog around the image.
