    Fritz Deters gave me a "heads up" on the ISS crossing the face of the Sun today. It happened right here in good old S.G. I took a look at the map and saw that if I set up in Fred and Diane Kroshus' driveway, I'd see it at 12:16:44. I went out there, set up, shot the breeze with Fred for a bit and "BOOM" It went through right to the second!

    We've gotta get that boy as a presenter for 2013. He is as sharp as a tack.

    If any of you have a solar filter, check out the massive sunspot group on the eastern edge of the Sun. If that thing lets loose with a coronal mass ejection, we'll see Northern Lights until the cows come home!
