Earth Image said he’ll be in South Carolina. I have friends from Delaware who RV’d it to Tennessee. The Weather Channel is on Eclipse coverage all day, with anchors all across the country, the luckiest anchor where I’d be if I could, Jackson Hole. They’ll get the best view, highest spot to view, and with the least chance of cloud coverage ruining it.
South Carolina is in the path of some storms and clouds. Jim Cantore is anchored in Carbondale Illinois, the actual center of the eclipse fly-by. I think he got the short straw.
Me? I’ll be watching the eclipse for sure, on TV. If you do watch and want to send peeps pix, or pix of the eclipse, email me at eosfriday at optonline dot net. I’ll post them here. If you want your pix to be sent as Anonymous, no problem – your ID is safe with me. Just tell me how you want them posted, Anonymous or with a moniker.
Happy Monday one and all.
UPDATE: Pix from readers. Earth Image said he’d send some later.
The spouse MacGyvered a viewer. We went to the beach, invited a few friends for a “total eclipse of the sun” party. I should have gotten the Spotify playlist for that-darn.
Here’s the home made viewer — tripod, binoculars, cardboard & duct tape.
The photos are of the reflection thru the home-made viewer. One pic is of the actual sun no viewer. Once the clouds moved over the camera could be used directly. It was cool and glad we invited a few friends to join us too. We only had one pair of glasses but we shared!
Earth Image is taking in the FULL South Carolina Right Culture experience.
