nOT ANY kind of astro-lad, but by trimming the above URL i got this:
NASA - Eclipse Home Page
Looks like the right-coasters have to stay up WAY late to see the ending. Like midnight!

West coast totality should start about 7PM local time and last about three quarters of an hour. It's partial for slightly over an hour leading up to and following the totality.

Another cheap thrill is sighting the International Space Station passing overhead. We just saw it tonight at 6:36 PM EST in NE Ohio. Also saw it on Thursday night.

The neighbors must think we're the biggest geeks on the block,

Welcome to Heavens-Above

Yeah! we go running out to standing the street too! Have you seen the station and the shuttle together yet? A while ago we saw the shuttle trailing the station after they had seperated. Pretty cool - it makes us feel a bit closer when she's down in SoCal and I'm up in Oregano - she sees the station first , then a few minutes later i do...

We use this for our sighting times - click your state and choice of city:

Human Space Flight (HSF) - Orbital Tracking
Sure it's much the same as the Heavens-Above site.

EVERYBODY PANIC!! The Mother moon is about to go dark on us - and for those of you close to the Arizona/California/Mexico border - how about a potential volcanic eruption to go with it?

JUST IN - Extremely Rare Larger Quake from "Swarm" at Baja California >> Four Winds 10 - fourwinds10.com

Anyone making book on the level of a California Apocalypse?

The eclipse was beautiful last night--we went out in the back yard at 10pm and watched it. Funny that a whole bunch of hunting dogs down the road started barking when it got completely covered. Very nifty and nice to live where there is such a dark night sky!

No doubt, but since she's my ex, I don't have to care...

If you want her side of the story, you'll have to ask her...
