All twelve elementary schools in Muncie, Indiana were prepared to 
complete Star Counts and Record information on the color.  The weather 
did not cooperate.  Muncie, Indiana was in the path of the rain and cloud 
cover in the storm that passed over the midwest.  For a brief moment we 
saw the eclipse in black & white in between clouds.

David Levy  joined us on the campus of Ball State University to observe 
the eclipse.  He called his fiance during the eclispe.  She had beautiful 
weather!  David Levy was the first  speaker featured in the BSU Provost 
Lecture Series this year.  What a night tohave David Levy speak!!  The 
provost invited selected area Schools and College  staff members to the 
dinner prior to David's Presentation.  

An unexpected treat, we were all invited to the BSU Planetarium for  
COMETS ARE COMING.  David Levy  wrote the Script.  

Sorry that we do not have Star Counts to report at this time due to the 
poor weather.  We had a real treat with David Levy in Muncie, Indiana!!

I am reporting the Star Counts of all you lucky people that had good 
viewing weather.  Our students are interested in what the counts were 
from other cities in the country

We enjoyed this project!
