    Just to respond to Erin’s comments about the eclipse: anything less than totality is “meh”. Although I might someday want to try to see a “ring of fire”, I suspect it’s really just a “meh” event. I saw the streaming of the Venus transit, and although I’m sad I missed seeing it directly (with eye protection, of course), by looking at the partial portion with glasses, I learned that I really didn’t miss anything by seeing the transit via live streaming.

    When the total eclipse was finished, my thoughts were literally “So it’s finished. That’s it? That was kindof boring. How am I going to get to the next one?” I *really* wish the next one would be the one in Chile, but financially, I’ll likely have to wait until April 2024 (much to my chagrin.)

    Oh, and for all the boredom (I think) I felt at the end, I almost tear up when I think about when the sun first popped into totality. So, yeah, it touched me in ways I don’t fully understand.

    It is a location I’m certainly going to keep in mind. Bill Whittle, Scott Ott, and Steven Green of “Right Angle” said they are going to go to St. Louis; that might not be as easy to get to for me as Texas, though.

    To further complicate matters, I was a bit disappointed that I was only able to see Venus; I hoped to see Mercury and Mars, and perhaps even Orion (which is typically a winter constellation). I’m wondering if there are any particular locations where the sky can get even darker than where it did in my location in Idaho…
