Fwd: Re: [GPSL] Re: GPSL 2017
The make observations of the eclipse, the balloon has to pass through an infinitely tall cylinder of shadow that is moving. I suspect our best chances are to spread out balloons.
I am in favor of holding GPSL earlier in the summer. I think the topic should be the upcoming eclipse and the launches could be a dry run.
I am however open to any week and venue.

August 21, 2017?
Let me check my calendar.
Wait! I don't even have a 2017 calendar!
Hey! No Problem! That GPSL date is now virtually penciled in! :)
So now we will all be working in balloon payloads that will zero in on the eclipse during a floater at 100,000 ft and observing how the eclipse causes changes in changes in gravity, cosmic radiation and increases in dark matter to put everything back the way it was!!!
You physics guys better get busy! :)

The 2007 GPSL was held in Grand Island, NE which is just a few miles north of the center of the totality path. Maybe after a decade's break they'll be interested in 2017.73 de Mark N9XTN

St' Louis looks promising.

Speaking of 2017 -- there is a total solar eclipse on 21 August that year, crossing over from Oregon over to South Carolina. It starts at about 1720 UTC out west, and goes back over the Atlantic by 1850 or so. Along the totality shadow, the widest point is about 80 miles wide, though this varies. Totality lasts only a couple minutes, but the partial darkness leading up to and after totality is about 1.5 hours. Getting images of the shadow on the earth's surface from near-space would be interesting.
