October 23, 2014 Partial Solar Eclipse Recap

Last week I pointed out an upcoming partial solar eclipse on October 23, 2014.  I set up a telescope on top of a nearby parking garage, as seen below.

It was still clear enough out at the time to see a huge cluster of sunspots which was very cool!  However, a few minutes later the clouds rolled in and never cleared leaving me and about 40 students out of luck.  Bummer.  Oh well, I'll try again in 3 years when the next solar eclipse in the continental U.S. makes an appearance.
