- Hello Everyone:
It is clear here in Dallas, TX, so I took my Meade 2045 out into the front
yard, which has a better tree line, threw on the solar filter, and shot a few
pix. They are at Eckerds right now getting developed, and I will scan them
and have some on the web tonight. It is not quite over yet. (4:30) About 35%
maximum eclipse here is what the radio said. I decided to accept that. It
also said that maximum eclipse was about 3:55 local time (CST). That seems to
agree with my book.
According to my RASC 2001 Handbook, this was an annular eclipse, and you
could have observed totality in San Jose, Costa Rica.
