Ben Goren has sent me some photos of the group of WEIT readers who are meeting at the Grand Canyon to watch, draw, and photograph tonight’s annular eclipse. Last night they convened at a sushi bar in Flagstaff. Although one petulant reader argued that decent sushi couldn’t be obtained so far from the sea, these photos do get me salivating. Here’s Ben’s photos and captions (click to enlarge)
Two of these in particular should appeal to you… [JAC: It has to be the Jerry and Black Cat rolls! Click to enlarge.]
More noms. This might be the Jerry roll, and that’s reader daveau, I believe:
And this is surely the Black Cat Roll:
Finally, the group (minus Ben, who’s obviously taking the picture): From right to left I identify them as Justin Zimmer, Kelly Houle, Kelly’s partner (sorry, don’t remember his name), daveau, and Dave.
I wish I were there, but we’ll have some awesome documentation of the eclipse, I hope by tomorrow.
