It’s A No Go – Final Partial Solar Eclipse Update – 23 October (Thursday), 4:30 p.m.

Greetings all,

Unfortunately, the Syracuse skies are being particularly disagreeable today, with the current cloud cover only expected to get worse as the evening progresses. We are therefore canceling our event at the Onondaga Lake Parkway this afternoon, instead directing interested observers to the Slooh Community Observatory for less direct but more predictable views.

Additional events to be posted (hopefully attended) in the near future. Thanks for keeping track of site updates!

Partial Solar Eclipse Update – 23 October (Thursday), 10:00 a.m.

Greetings fellow astrophiles,

The skies are currently 20% clear over downtown Syracuse with predictions of worsening cloud cover as the day progresses. Accordingly, we’ll be waiting until 4:30 p.m. to make the final call on the Onondaga Lake Parkway session (for more details, including the location, see the previous link HERE).

In the meantime, there are routes to seeing the eclipse (and, very likely, the massive sunspot currently pointed near our way) in real time from the comfort of your own internet connection. The good amateur astronomers at the Slooh Community Observatory will be live streaming the event starting at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.

That said, we await the afternoon skies to see if our session will happen. Stay Tuned!
