The Traveling Go Board: Eclipse go in Casper, Wyoming

Tuesday August 22, 2017

“Thanks to Facebook, my wife Margaret discovered that (longtime Princeton NJ go organizer) Rick Mott and his family were also in Casper, Wyoming for the total eclipse of the sun,”2017.08.22_phil-rick-eclipse-go-IMG_4093 reports EJ photographer Phil Straus. “That was a great surprise, but in hindsight, I am not surprised another go player would find the spot on the path of totality that had the best probability of clear skies.”

“We all met at a lovely country road intersection within a few hundred yards of the center line of the totality path,” Straus writes. “We had trees, birds, and no crowds and a clear view of the southern sky.”

“After the thrilling minutes of totality, we of course, pulled out a go board. Note the eclipse glasses and binocular filters.”
