Wow, that is amazing. I believe Indystorm took pictures (cave paintings) of that one. :scooter:

I haven't checked closely, but I believe we'll be on the northern edge up here for 2024.

Yeah, the northern line runs right through Huntington county.  Huntington itself is just north of it.

Hello, all.  Just got back this Monday Aug. 28 from a week's vacation in the Ohio River valley that started with a view of the total eclipse from Harrisburg Illinois that was beyond awesome.  Sorry for no pictures.   I had expected the moon to cover the sun and show the corona but what I didn't expect and fully amazed me was the wall of darkness that came in from the west at totality.  It was like an approaching t storm but in clear sky.  Got about as dark as a full moon night and street lights came on.  Lasted about two minutes.  By far the most amazing thing I have seen in an astronomical sense.    And no, IWX, I may be older but not THAT OLD!  Ha! Ha!

Hey! Good to hear from you! A few of us were worried about you since you haven't been on here for awhile. I'm glad that you had a good eclipse experience and vacation. Thanks for being able to take a little friendly ribbing about age. This coming from a guy who's no spring chicken compared to most of the posters here.

I'll be starting a thread about 2024 soon. lol

I'm glad I got to knock this off my bucket list. It was one of the most expensive vacations of my life but totally worth it. I'm already looking forward to 2024. I imagine Niagara Falls is going to be the big destination but I have another idea. I want to be on the Peace Bridge between Fort Erie ON and Buffalo NY. Standing on the border when it happens. I wonder if I can pull that off, or if too many other people will have the same idea?

climo is way too cloudy for that area at that time of year. you could get lucky but statistically speaking the choice isn't optimal.

Yeah, that's why I'm targeting Dallas.
