Perfect - something fabulous to do in a dark sky since the power is out up this way.

Perfect timing! According to news articles the peak time here should be around 9pm. I just sent a text to all our boats out on charter and I'm hoping they can get some pictures.

Any idea whether best viewing is East or West?

I went out and had a look for a while but there's too much light pollution where I am.

klc, I'm guessing it may depend on where you are. I got the original peak time as 11pm in Toronto from CityTV news which is 9pm here.

Yep - went out, power was back on - light pollution from the neighbors pier ruined the view.
Perhaps these folks are from a part of the US where living in a Walmart parking lot is considered a good thing?
