    This is going to be a compromise situation. I noticed that the point on land
    that I first located was close to the college. I decided to invite the
    astronomy professor and his class to watch. In order to do that I have to
    position myself close to the building. I'm quite glad that the college is
    where it is. I was concerned however about the track being across the sun
    from that location. That's one reason for my inquiry.
    
    I deeply appreciate the help of so many. Now I only must contend with the
    weather.
