Last night's eclipse viewing was a great success for CHAOS and the Morehead
Planetarium! While the moon was ghostly when it first appeared (see
http://www.spaceweather.com/eclipses/03mar07/smith1.jpg) for a view from
Stoneville, NC that resembled what we first saw through the trees), it
looked very nice as the sky darkened. And in addiiton to the moon, we
showed folks M42 and Saturn (I especially enjoyed everyone's expressions of
delight when they saw Saturn through my telescope).
For a writeup of the event, go to
Next weekend (Friday or Saturday) we have another observing session with
the planetarium at Little River Park. Stay tuned to the listserve for
interpretations of the weather and more information.
