The seeing was terrible, but at least we could see the Sun while much of the island was overcast and raining. I had hoped to set up in the parking lot for Puʻukohala Heiau but arrived a few minutes after they closed the gate. Instead I set up just below at Spencer Beach park.
Of course the telescope drew a crowd of folks who wanted a look. No matter, an eclipse is a slow motion affair with plenty of time to share the eyepiece. I showed my guests how to take photos with their cell phones at the eyepiece, so everyone got a photo or three of the event.
