I will be watching the Eclipse from my own house terrace when it occurs in late night early morning. Some amateurs are forming a group to watch it but I may prefer to see it alone.

I would watch it, but I am on the wrong side of the planet. :-D With luck, I will catch some of the webcast.

We (the kids and I and hubby) watched a really beautiful one a few years back in Washington State. Hubby had a telescope as a kid. He is something of an amateur stargazer. We went to the Goldstone Observatory in Washington state as well. And did a unit on astronomy, complete with backyard stargazing exercises, as part of homeschooling the kids. I, on the other hand, am mostly interested because I do astrology, which isn't much respected in this forum. 8-! But it was good for keeping my math skills sharp when the kids were little. :)

We saw it just pre-dawn. I missed any reference before this AM but as I am up early on Wednesdays to go rowing I saw it on the way to the lake. Pretty spooky actually.
