Meh. Not part of the madness. My astronomy club, well most of them are travelling two days or one very long day up to Oregon and Idaho or whatever to see all glorious two minutes of it. I’m going to get my special glasses, go out during breaks at work, go “Ooh” and “aaah” and that’s about it.

Been there, done that.


On the other hand, I just spent last night (Saturday) out at my observing site under a dark sky with NO MOON and observed a couple of galaxies, a planetary nebula, a trio of dark nebulae, and a whole bunch of open star clusters. It was a very productive night!

Now THAT was worth the 36 miles from the house!
