The early morning of Thursday August 17.
You can now see the Sun, underground. The arrows through Venus and the Sun show their motion (on the map of the sky) over five days. Venus is moving east faster than the Sun, but will on August 21 still be 34 degrees to the Sun’s right. You’ll probably see it become discernible in the darkening sky, before the fuller darkening into totality.
As the Moon flies on toward the Sun, I set off tomorrow morning across the ocean to my own appointment with the eclipse, and may not be able to communicate any more till after it.
