    Hi Greg

    Looks like you have the best seat in the house.

    No joy here on the east end of Long Island NY.  Cloudy, with just glimpses of sunlight, never seeing either orb.

    Best Regards
    Brad Morris

    Southern California is clear with a perfect view. What a sight !

    A lot of cloud cover near the north coast of Indiana, ranging from high sheet about 24:00 UT giving way to 7/8 then 3/8 cumulus cover, so have been able to follow it from ingress about every 15 minutes.  Thrilling, and bigger than I had anticipated. About to lose it to sunset.

    If a line from Carly Simon's You're So Vain" (I flew my Lear jet to Nova Scotia for the total eclipse of the sun) was fair game, so is "There's a little black dot on the sun today," from Sting/the Police "King of Pain."

    Many years ago George H. chastised me for mentioning "Sea Monkeys" on the list, as non-USA or non-English speaking list members might not understand the reference. So I apologize to members who do not follow that genre of music, and especially to the spirit of George.
