Hi American friends!

Tell us about the total Eclipse! How did you see it?? Did you simulate it with Celestia(.Sci)?

Cheers
Fridger

It was dull. ;)

Here in NY, we were way off the centerline.

I viewed the partial eclipse using a "pinhole camera", which involved no special equipment whatsoever: one of my co-workers poked a pin through a sheet of aluminum foil, and the resulting image was projected onto the white back of a paper plate. (The front had a colored pattern on it.) The image was tiny, but the moon was clearly eating the sun!

Similar to JohnV here, clouded out. They were predicting 82% partial here. I plan to travel for the 2024 one. MN doesnt get totality until 2099, so unless someone invents youthful immortality... ;)

going on memory. I got a break from work about 2:30 in the afternoon. It looked darker than normal. For a split second I looked up and saw a half crescent. That was totality for this area. North East Pennsylvania. That was then, this is now.

Anyhow, just installed Suse 42.3. Been thinking about getting back. Is Celestia.sci going to be released soon? Like to contribute some how if it does.

Hi cartrite,

nice to read you again after quite a while. I'll write a PM to you tomorrow.

Cheers,
Fridger
