Total Solar Eclipse August 1st, 2008

Gerd Neumann and I went to Novosibirsk to view this total solar eclipse. We organised to whole trip ourselves, which gave us ultimate flexibility on eclipse day. After extensively studying weather models and satellite images we took a taxi to Kochenevo, some 45km west of the city.  Here we met Rainer Kresken, David Morgan, Steffen Elste and a very enthusiastic group of young astronomers from Moscow. We could enjoy  the eclipse within a group of fellow eclipse chasers and with best weather.
