We got a wonderful total eclipse here, without any cloud. We organised a meeting for 300 amateur astronomers from Quebec with 60 telescopes at all.

Alexandra,
We got the best weather here in south Quebec, even better than Texas and Mazatlan.
Lot of visitors from USA and France, real eclipse chasers.
Lot of memorys for my old days !!!
