My little grand daughter sat on my lap and together we watched the totality spring out on live YouTube. She was utterly astonished. We had shared the annular eclipse in person at Lake Tahoe, after a fashion. She has grown enough since then to be utterly fascinated now. She was disappointed I could not re-wind the experience.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if she could join us in this adventure? She will be six.
For awhile I was avidly planning it, even though it is far off.
Now, it just floats along in my mind.
Mr Tiki’s roots are in Indonesia, but he has not been back since his family left when he was a boy.
When we encountered some pricy impediments to connecting with the upcoming annular eclipse, Mr Tiki suggested that I find an eclipse for us to go to that was a total.
So I began studying the upcoming eclipses, and discovered one in the not too far distant future visible mainly from Indonesia. The next challenge was finding where in Indonesia we would be most likely to have good viewing. It appears Central Sulawesi may be optimum. I have quite a bit of time to research.
Meantime, I discovered that what may be the best place to stay in the area books up more than a year in advance. Either that or their online booking information is not correct. Either is possible.
I have already begun to have dreams of what we will see under the water there.
