I hope you had a chance to enjoy last night’s eclipse. The weather was perfect –OK, it could have been a little warmer — and the colors were spectacular. I especially enjoyed the sense of tranquillity during total eclipse. The bright stars joined the subdued moon in a quiet duet that lasted almost an hour. If you have photos or observations you’d like to share, please send them to my e-mail address and I’ll post them on this blog.
Thanks! — Bob
