At our board meeting last night we decided the “official” club event for the total eclipse would be in association with the Science Museum of Oklahoma (SMO). I’m not sure exactly what they’re doing yet, but I’m sure they’ll be doing something in the parking lot like they did for the annular eclipse. After all, in OKC there is/was really no difference in the two. Both are about 85% partial eclipses in OKC.
I’ll start a separate post with details after I coordinate with the musuem on what they’re planning.
I’ve gotten, and I’m sure will continue to get, requests for support for the total eclipse. I’ll post those on the forum and members can support them or not, as they choose. If you don’t go anywhere else, I urge you to go to the SMO to view it.
Obviously, a lot of club members, including me, have plans to travel to the path of totality. There will be no official club event in the path. But again, I’ll post requests for support on the forum and members can choose to support any that appeal to them.
Even if you can’t make it into the path of totality, it’s well worth taking the time to observe the partial eclipse wherever you are! The partial is visible across the entire continental US. The club has solar viewing glasses available and we’ll ensure these are available at the club meetings.
