Date/TimeDate(s) - Monday - August 21, 2017
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Paul and Rebecca Reinmann will be our hosts for a CFMC Solar Eclipse Event, August 21, 2017. The solar eclipse is visible along a narrow path that stretches across the United States. Preliminary planning for this celestial spectacle is underway. Here is Paul’s preliminary itinerary.
I am starting to plan this event. It will be a one day trip as it looks now. It could stretch to two days if there is enough interest.
The eclipse starts August 21, 2017 at 1:00 pm in Columbia, SC and ends at 4:00 pm. It occurs in Georgetown a little later. I might pick the location two days ahead based on predicted cloud cover at these places.
Tentative timeline: Meet at Battleship around 9:00 am and depart for Columbia/Georgetown. Arrive at noon. We could have lunch outdoors while eclipse watching. We could also walk around the area too. We could stay till the end at 4 pm or leave early. Either way we can have dinner on the way back.
I will drive both routes and have places picked out so the last minute decision will not be a problem. More details will follow soon.
Let’s all plan to participate in this unique, once in a lifetime event. Paul will provide more details and specifics later. (RC)
