|Sunday 2 PM update. We are going
to be there with a few scopes but the forecast
says we will not be viewing. The cloud cover
may clear a little but then it will close up
again before the eclipse begins.
for observing the total eclipse of
the Moon, Sunday, September 27: We
will setup telescopes on Rivers Green, the
garden area next to Addlestone library on its
south side. There is little to see during the
penumbral phase of the eclipse, so we will
begin observing at 9 PM, just before second
contact at 9:06 PM. We will pack up the scopes
after totality has been reached around 10:30
PM though the eclipse will continue for more
than an additional hour.
If there is a weather cancellation, and the
outlook is poor, I will post updates on this
page Sunday at 2 PM and at 7 PM.
announce the next observing session as the
opportunity arises. Check back.
