Toner and Ron are near Salem in Oregon. Maximum eclipse will occur at 9:58am Oregon time. We will not be able to live broadcast but will sent reports and images as soon as possible after the event.
Today was a little hazy but we are hoping for a clear sky for the eclipse. Here is NASA's eclipse weather map: https://www.weather.gov/source/crh/eclipse.html
We have our glasses T-shirts and are raring to go! The photo below is of me at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, one of three observatories we have visited in our journey to the total solar eclipse.
