The eclipse starts at 4th picture of the daily set.

Very cool! Thanks, Martin! Missed the eclipse (overcast and being too far south in southern Cal) but a lot of nice images and vids on the web.

Very cool, thanks Martin. I did get to see the eclipse. I was at Gorham, IL we had 2'40" of totality. It was awesome.

Terry- You have no idea how jealous I am! Still, it must have been incredible to see it first hand. Happy you got to see it!

Martin, looks like you and I get the good view in 2024. But it's April……which means overcast and rain. frown

Bowman, there's no guarantee that I stay in Southern Ontario after I finish my PhD next year (hopefully).

Eastern Townships are beautiful and right in the swath of the eclipse. Just sayin'.
