Ah, that's cool!
It must have taken alot of time to mix the audio and video.
It's great that the sound of the experience is recorded also.
Thanks for posting it up here.

Michael,
that was the easiest thing.
In macintosh the main program for editing videos "imovie"
you can add extra music as background for several clips
and you adjust for every clip the loudness level of the original
sound of the clip or the song you've chosen for background ;)

The limerick leader asked us to do up an article for them about the eclipse,
They put the entire article + 4 images onto page 4 of the weekend paper, it makes up most of the page.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME article!

Two minor comments .... are solar eclipses, on average, not around every 18 months or so and in contrast to the two per year cited in the article .... and there is a small typo with "Artic" ....

Gents,

I checked further and the average of 18 months is in relation to total solar eclipses. As for solar eclipses in general (annular, hybrid, total), we do indeed have at least two such opportunities annually.

As an aside, 2011 will be characterized with four partial eclipses as per SkyMap Pro V8. Cool!

Well,
I'm not going to argue over 18 months or 1 year, its something I had in my head and didn't look it up in detail, I'll let it to a questioning reader of the paper to come back to us on that one. As for typos, we try and get them all but some do get through.
We wrote it in the same style as our shorter weekly article so its pitched so that anyone can read it.
If people come into the meeting next month saying they want to go to an eclispe next year, then its has done its job. :)

Dave,

The article is a very pleasant read and certainly describes well all aspects of the experience (from getting there, the incessant worries about the weather and finally the big event itself).

Now, if the article does not inspire others to join you, I then give up.

Well lads,
I was wondering what would the weather have been like had the eclipse been 6 months later in mid winter instead,
Current temperature in Novosibirsk is -26c with a windchill of a -30c :ohmy: :ohmy:

We have a national emergency whenever the temperature falls below +10d C.

No money in the world would make me visit a place with -26d C ...
