Solar Eclipse!

6 posts in this topic

Tomorrow, as most of you probably know, a total solar eclipse will be seen over much of the United States and a partial one in other areas. Will you be watching? At home or at a specially scheduled event? Have you gotten/will you get the appropriate glasses? Make your own device? Or just avoid looking directly at it? Or ??

Meanwhile, if you're interested in knowing exactly how much of an eclipse will be evident where you live and at what time, check this out:

My daughter just told me about an easy way to watch the solar eclipse. Face away from the sun and use the forward-facing camera on your smart phone to see it.

We are watching at home. We live in the path of totality. Schools are closed due to heavy traffic. I ordered enough eclipse glasses for our AC/families. We have 4yo gs today and DD gave me instructions for putting his glasses on a paper plate to prevent peeking over/under them. He said it was "very cool". Will end here at 4pm est.

We didn't get much of an eclipse here in the NE. But many of us saw the amazing total eclipses in other parts of the country on TV, etc. Probably not the same as seeing it in person, but still awesome (and we didn't need special glasses for it, LOL)!

Those of you who were able to see it firsthand were very lucky though, IMO. Hope you enjoyed it!  I hear we'll get our chance out here in about seven years. :)
