    Cool

    Sunny skies here. Mounted my 4-1/2 inch reflector with projection solar screen. It was a triple-sized period (.) against a golf ball.

    I sat in semi-shaded area w/umbrella in lawn chair very nearby. Gentle breeze.

    Two hours of viewing until sun went behind fence/distant houses.

    Have a new cellphone, and snapped some pics!

    Cool! Glad it lucked out for you.

    We were totally socked in with rain down here in Stuart (about 2hours south of you).
