Yeah i've been watching it too off and on.

Too bad they diddn't have it running near the equinox.  last night I 
watched the sun pass vbehind the earth,  it passes above the north pole now.

The camera seems l;ike it will be sensitive enough once the sun is 
blocked to actually see light pollution, because when it was way off to 
one side,,  say the earth ws 20% lit or so  i was actually seeing some 
stars in the background even.

Pretty cool
