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

    Bob, I really appreciated your work on this. I’m one of those guys who sometimes gets too wrapped up in things to even notice the wonders that occur right outside my door, but I happened upon your blog and it reminded us to get out there and check it out. Thank you!
