    Nice observations, Jeff! Nice pics, too. The 2d one of the partial phase and all of your totality ones are really nice and match what Steve and I saw down here in Spring Grove.

    We went out to the Myrah homefarm driveway, just 2 miles east of town and dropped below the ridge on the north side to escape the lights from town. We were there from 12:30 to 3 a.m. when the clouds drove us home. Matthew Myrah and his oldest daughter Stine joined us at 2:20 a.m.

    We had a pretty good clear run at it up to totality, then we played "pocket astronomy" with the clouds until we got fed up and pulled the pin.

    Still, we both got great sketches of the event. Stuppo's is a lot farther along with his astronomy artwork than I was at his experience level with the hobby. I was impressed.

    AGNFA! Come on, warm weather!
