Good Morning Reesie and Folks,
Ok we are back and totally knackered and pretty stoked with tonight.
I knew youd be super keen for an update so here i am mate.
Was an excellent adventure to say the least!
We have some shots (100 150 odd) but the clouds came in just ( literally just ) as it went total!! ARRGHH!! I could just die!!! But we will see what
I can pull from the telescope images after i sleep and have fresh eyes! It was super red and really nice kinda muted orangey. Its still going now and
was way longer than i expected thanks to my astro club telling me it was only 100mins! (my bad I didnt even worry about double checking.) If it were a
clear night we would still be there now.
When it went total where we were was amzing the crikets and frogs even stopped and total silence and darkness. It was an eerie moment for sure. More
on that stuff later.
Anyway I will be back later to share what i can.
Have the best day
