I will be heading to Cookville TN. 2:29 of totality, if the weather cooperates!

He was quoting Sting... :D

I'll be in Alliance, NE, out out on a ranch south of town, with 300+ or - of my new best friends. .. Have camping spots for the badlands, and mt rushmore before we head south.. hope there isn't too much traffic out in that neck of the woods.

One thing no one has mentioned . Watch out for all your gear !! Never leave it alone , don't even crack your windows to let out hot air . In an event like this theives will be at large in large quantities ! Panhandlers will be everywhere too so watch your valuables and pocket book as well as pick-pockets . Don't think of it as being funny , those kind of people are real and are out there ! Scammers will be all over the place , out of state license plates are lucky targets !

I will be near North Platte, NE with my brother and two friends from Marathon, TX, where we host together star parties. I am so excited about this celestial event that I am having a very difficult time getting to sleep at night. I have been imaging celestial objects for years that are hundreds of light years away from earth. I now have an opportunity to witness one of the greatest celestial events--and it is only occurring a little more than a light second (the moon) away from me in concert with our star. I have automated the process as much as possible so that I can witness and be enveloped as much as possible in a very special moment of time. I made plans several years ago to attend totality, and now it is at my heart-throbbing doorstep.

I posted a couple pictures below of the galactic center of our Milky Way as viewed in Marathon, TX in late April 2017. A couple of the scopes may be seen that we setup and allow the public to use. We also have an observatory on site where several of us keep our scopes set up to image the sky. If you are ever in the Marathon, TX area, please stop by and look me up. I am always there in early October through June.

I wish you all clear skies!

Living vicariously through all of you!
