in reply to During the recent solar eclipse, I:

Also noted: idiots in boats on one of the TVA lakes who chose to celebrate totality by setting off a barage of fireworks -- roman candles and larger ones -- while positioned between large groups of observers to the north and the sun, not far from overhead but also southward. That must have destroyed totality for the aforementioned eclipse-chasers.

Luckily, we were on the south shore... and were able to observe undisturbed.

And now, on to 2024... where totality hits northern NE and NY; many miles closer to home, albeit with sketchy weather prospects.

EDIT: Mostly reordered words to turn para 1 into intelligible english, )-:

Real astronomers go to eclipses to watch the clouds.
