Last post for today, I promise

I just wanted to take a moment to be all gleeful about eclipse on the tenth, and about not having finals then, and about eclipse filters and such. I have not gotten to photograph an eclipse before, and though this one in annular, and only about a quarter complete here, I am muchly looking forward to it.

I didn't know.
When will it be visible, any idea?

ps: Mag % is the percentage of occultation of the apparent (angular) diameter of the sun; Obs % is the obscuration percentage of the apparent (angular) area. (ie, Obs% = pi * (Mag%/2) ^ 2)

Excellent. Thank you!

On a completely unrelated topic, do I owe you an email? I lost track...

I think you do!
Otherwise I'm going to feel really stupid for not writing to you sooner.
Do you have one laying around? I don't have one from you that I can find.

These an eclipse on my fucking birthday?!?!?!?! Holy shit. Now I really wish I hadn't left Seattle. Bother and damn. Fuck fuckity fuck fuck.
