finding the site
26 March 2010

in a way, my project has always been on its site.
i simply hadn't found it.
actually, i didn't known what i was looking for.
did friedrich bessel know?

condition one
the instrument is built around the total solar eclipse commencing july 16th 2186, 15:14:54

condition two
the trajectory of this significant eclipse follows a thin path across the surface of the earth. the only landfall occur in south america

condition three
to increase the chances of the instrument using/experiencing the eclipse, cloud and atmospheric interference need to be reduced. therefore high altitude is required.

condition four
the programme of the instrument suggests that a sharp change in surface inclination could aid the exit route. this could take the form of a cliff, mountainside, impact crater wall, crevasse etc...
