      If anyone is able to host a local eclipse viewing event, let me know and I'll help get you set up.
      There have been increasing inquiries about meeting in town.



        My poor planning will make that day a bit hectic.

        Did anyone mention a place in Rochester to get the viewing glasses? Someone posted a question on Facebook on Monday.


          if you just need a few, i have some leftover
          from a 10pk i bought from the Astronomical

            Randy … is RAC going to set up anywhere in Rochester tomorrow? I can bring my 12" Dob if I know where. Or call me at 507-210-6753.

              It's hard to capture solar eclipse. Maybe a poem can do that.


              A Solar Eclipse

              Ella Wheeler Wilcox ( Johnstown, Wisconsin 1850 – 1919 Connecticut )

              In that great journey of the stars through space
                  About the mighty, all-directing Sun,
                  The pallid, faithful Moon, has been the one
              Companion of the Earth. Her tender face,
              Pale with the swift, keen purpose of that race,
                  Which at Time?s natal hour was first begun,
                  Shines ever on her lover as they run
              And lights his orbit with her silvery smile.

              Sometimes such passionate love doth in her rise,
                  Down from her beaten path she softly slips,
              And with her mantle veils the Sun?s bold eyes,
                  Then in the gloaming finds her lover?s lips.
              While far and near the men our world call wise
                  See only that the Sun is in eclipse.
