We are firmly ensconced at G’Ma and Papap Coldwarrior’s palatial estate in the far northwest corner of PA for the 2024 solar eclipse. Their property lies in the path of totality. I have brought along the Meade 10″ Newtonian telescope with the solar filter from Thousand Oaks Optical (my favorite filter company for optics, excellent products). Eclipse time is about 3pm Monday. We gave the kids Monday and Tuesday off from school, however, they must provide a report and details of the event for their science teacher.

The City of Erie and the surrounding counties are going to make a fortune! The highways leading here all have a state trooper and tow trucks at all exit ramps.

I’ll try to provide updates during the event.

This is also an open.

Hmmmm…open 2024
