Hi all,
I thought I’d do a quick post.. I’m sitting here in Sayre, OK… finished up day 2 of a 4 day drive from Las Vegas, NV to Jackson, MO to (hopefully) see a Total Solar Eclipse!

My original plan was the DFW area at a fellow astro-geek’s house – his back yard is slated for 3m 56s of totality, and I wouldn’t have to fight anyone for a parking space!  Alas, in a cruel twist of fate.. all of the predicted ‘good’ locations ( DFW being in that category ) are getting cloud cover ( DFW is actually getting thunderstorms forecast ).. and the historically cloudy areas are the best option for Monday’s event!

I hope to do a live broadcast of the eclipse… I have no idea how it’ll turn out, what I’ll be broadcasting, if I’ll even have clear skies to shoot the eclipse.. or heck, if I’ll have enough cellular bandwidth to do the stream! But, just in case… be sure to check our YouTube channel for the stream on Monday, April 8th.

Looks amazing! I passed your eclipse stream around to people in the office.
