Thanks again to everyone for making me feel so welcome. It was a great weekend, and a lot of fun. The eclipse itself was amazing.

For anyone interested in downloading the song I sang on Saturday, here's a link:

So glad you could make it, King_Erlian, that's wonderful! :D

Listening now, very nice! I do like the minor key of #11, with a hint of jazz in the music. As for #12, well, Narnia-based is always good. :D The easy-going yet anticipatory feel of this one is lovely. Nice brass, too! There is almost a slight swing-feel to the beat.

Beautiful, stargazer!

I love reading everyone's reactions. B-)

Say, everyone, thanks for the little remembrance in my RL mailbox. Wish I could have been there!

Well, you set off something good. Are you going to fix your list now? :D

The Celestron telescope company has posted a video compiled from submissions by eclipse viewers. Some of the shots and clips give a good impression of what it was like, and I still got goosebumps watching some of the reaction and scenery parts.

Thanks for sharing 'gazer! What a moving video that really does show the excitement and awe of actually being there. I can't wait for 2024 to come round! Sharing the experience with some of the lovely members of this forum made the whole experience extra special too. ;)
