watched Destin's video

I watched the Smarter Every Day podcast by Destin Sandlin on the upcoming solar eclipse. I first learned of this YouTube video via Chris Hadfield's Facebook post on the 14th. Yesterday, Gordon Telepun from Foxwood Astronomy referred me to it.

Destin interviewed Gordon and relayed lots of good facts. They talked about how things get busy just before Contact 2 and just after Contact 3. They discussed the Solar Eclipse Timer app and how it helps compute event times very accurately.

Destin was blown away by the shadow bands (or "snakes") phenomena and hopes to record it.
