How will you be enjoying the annular/partial solar eclipse of October 14, 2023?

I'm planning on attending Solar Eclipse at the Trottier Observatory from 8am. I have never seen an annular eclipse before, but I have viewed a partial eclipse from Vancouver in 2017. The moon will cover a slightly smaller portion of the sun for this partial eclipse. What time will this annular/partial eclipse be for you? will you be attending any public viewing parties?

Forecast for here is cloudy at this time. Hope it will change by then. May go to the observatory to image the sun, if conditions allow.

I’ll only have about 20% partial eclipse. So far the forecast is not good and with my luck I will be clouded/rained out.☹️ If that miraculously changes I’ll be on my balcony imagining it.

I have my grand eclipse expenditure in the total next spring, so if clear I'll be catching the partial from home. I will have a little under 40% of the solar disk covered, so I'm hoping for some nice shots of the lunar shadow and active regions.

So far the long term forecast is not promising at all...if clouded out I'll be with friends at a cottage enjoying a BBQ and fine scotch ;) Actually, the BBQ and scotch is a go even if the sky is clear...I'll just arrive late at the cottage :lol:

Best wishes for clear skies for all,
Brian
