Solar Eclipse.
« on: May 29, 2017, 02:09:07 PM »
Anyone planning on doing anything special for the full solar eclipse on Aug. 21 which makes a broad swath over the US? It will be interesting to watch the various PWS sensor values drop and rebound as the eclipse passes an area.

Planning on hanging out in my back yard as it passes overhead.  I'm just a couple of miles off the projected center of the track.

I am hoping to see some interesting sequences on the weather cams. I bet some of the members here will be posting some links.

I know there is another thread somewhere.

best place to see what you will see in the US   http://www.shadowandsubstance.com I have emailed him a couple of times for things. He does a nice job on the website.

I am planning a road trip to Missouri so I can see it. I have never seen a total in person. Taking the school telescope. But it does not have a camera attachment.

I don't even have an Etch-a-Sketch memory.

There will be a billion pics online. I just want to see it with my own eyes.

It looks like I'm not the only one who thought that the nearby Homestead National Monument that's less than an hour (46 mi.) away would be an ideal viewing area.  Time to seek out an alternative, I think!  This area is going to be crawling with people looking for the experience of a lifetime.
