The Shasta Astronomy Club will be viewing the Annular Eclipse from the Brandy
Creek Beach Parking Lot (Lot

May 20, 2012, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area

And I'll be crashing that, if the timing works out. We don't happen to have
#14 welders glass in the masks at EMS, do we? If so, may I borrow (one of)
them for the weekend?
