    Same, right on the line in MA. The part in green is near the city so I doubt I'll see much. It's okay though, I got a really good light show in Iceland!

    I remember a map last year for that big flare, had NJ in the green. We went out to this lake in the woods as far away from light sources as possible and sat there for 5 hours getting eaten alive waiting to see something. Fuck those maps, fuck their lies.

    That might have been a bigger flare too.

    Nice! I was thinking of imaging this one but it's a worknight and it starts at 1am here and goes on until 5am (start to finish) so I am going to most likely sit this one out plus I'm on an Astrophogoraphy break until I pull the trigger and get a new mono CCD cam for planetary work.

    If you are on the east coast, the maximum will be at 5:45pm so the sun should still be up. I think sunset will be around 6:15 on the 23rd.

    Getting excited about summer coming up again, I didn't end up using my telescope last summer as much as I wanted to, but hoping to get into it a lot more this year.

    Managed to see it, though it was right after the total eclipse ended... thanks mountains.

    and a big fuck you to space.com for saying it would rise in the east. it was to the southish. >

    honerary fuck yous to the giant spider hovering over the road, trying to capture prey 10000000x its size, the anthill right where i sat down, night blindness for making me trip and fall in a pothole created from the storm we had a couple weeks ago, and my phone for utterly failing to capture a picture of the moon that was more than a blurry red dot.

    Clear skies here 90% of the time, cloudy tonight through most of the eclipse. Got to see it near the end at least.
