Success reported for observing the Mid Pacific ocean total Solar Eclipse on board the MV Discovery. A certain amount of luck was involved, since the ship was not well-suited for open ocean cruising. Several hundred Astronomers were aboard. Moorea, Pitcairn, and Easter Island were scheduled stops, the cruise ended in Pisco/Lima Peru and a land extension to Machu Picchu. More Astronomy related activities are in the offing for the 2005 Summer/Fall seasons.
