Totality at Salem Oregon (Riverfront City Park). Note stars at 7 o'clock position (? Regulus and others). My previous total solar eclipse was in Australia in October 1976. My father's description of that eclipse was published in the January 1977 issue of Sky and Telescope in an article entitled "Totality from Zanzibar to Merimbula".
