    Tom Fly said, 
    
    "For anyone who's able to record such a transit, it's vital for later analysis 
    to document the precise location (latitude & longitude, to 4 decimal places if 
    possible)."
    
    Then in the NASA article I read, "If you want to get inside the path of 
    totality, try using a GPS receiver to guide you to the listed coordinates."
    
    I again want to say that a GPSr (r = receiver) is a very handy accessory to 
    have. I use my Magellan a lot. It easily gets me to within 30 feet of anywhere.
    
    Congratulations Tom! We are fortunate to have people like you that make 
    predictable, visions that would've gone unnoticed before.
