I've been looking forward to this since I read about it in january. Had my binos and welding goggles ready, but it's not likely to happen with all the cloud cover here today...bummerFrown

Three days ago a crow transited the sun here.

Since then it has been eclipsed by a constant line of clouds.

Same here. Getting my hands on +14 tint welding goggles was not easy. Damn weather.


Right now there's a red head dude talking to some brainiac about "EVE", extreme ultra violet rays that some satelite measures. The 5 minutes conversation has been one of the most akward interactions I have ever seen between two human beings on camera. The redhead guy is absolutely terrified about being on TV.

I'm in the no-transit zone. Frown

fucking cops. Mad

of course, it hasn't stopped raining since, like 2007 here, so there's not much I can do about it.
