Stargazing Solar Eclipse

  1. Apr 8, 2005 #1
    I'd just like to express my immense frustration at the fact that I am no more than a hundred miles away from a location where the partial solar eclipse can be viewed today. My family, on the other hand, can see the eclipse from our house and have stolen my solar specs and plan to call me while it's happening to "let me know how it is." :devil: :devil: :devil:
    I'd also like to say there are absolutely no clouds in the sky right now either. Gah!
    Anyone else planning to watch or cursing their respective geographic location along with me?
    For those interested in the US, here's what I'm talking about, you have a few hours warning if you haven't heard about it yet- http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse/SEmono/HSE2005/PSE2005city1/PSE2005city1.html [Broken]

    i am cursing the fact that i have wasted half my observing time thus far due to clouds and stupid computers not being plugged in properly by telescope technicians...

    oh well 3 of 5 nights to go and the weather is looking good for tonight!
