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.
