Hi Gang!

For those of you going to Maker Faire this weekend, just a reminder 
about the annular eclipse of the Sun on Sunday. If you leave MF around 
2:00 PM plus/minus depending on traffic, according to google maps you 
will get to Redding around the time of it's fullest occlusion (the 
annular portion) of the Sun. Actually you would want to be just a bit 
north of Redding. Anyway, the times for that part of the country are:

Start:         5:12 PM
Annular:    6:26 - 6:32 ish...
End:           7:36

Here is a great article on the dos and don'ts of eclipse viewing:

     Have fun! :-)
