August 30th, 2016: Solar Eclipse

Hurry up and get ready, the Solar Eclipse for the US is only a year away.



A great interactive Google map is here. You can zoom in on your hood.

That'll be the most exciting thing in western Kentucky...ever.

I think I get to be too far north for this one . But, in retrospect, I'm not too terribly disappointed...I did get to photograph the full moon a couple years back when it was eclipsed on the winter solstice, which happens like once every 400 years. Can't wait to see photos from Dwellars along the path, tho'!

Is that the path of the total eclipse? I missed the way to toggle on and off the partial eclipse. Can I see anything in DC?

Umbra and penumbra, if I remember my high school physics correctly. And I think I do, in this case.

Duh. Is that what the green lines way down in Brazil and up in the arctic are?

I'll have to use my Lenox Eclipse china that day.

The green line is the very limit of seeing anything at all. That is, a tiny nick out of the edge of the sun.

Thanks for the heads-up Bruce!



Diaphone Jim  Wednesday Aug 31 12:38 PM

I have had this event in mind for a year or two and I think I need to see it, having only viewed a couple around 80-90% in my 75 years.
The path of totality will be about 450 miles north of me, with a good local scheduled airline route.
Maybe I will charter a bus or rent a large motor home and take the kids and grandkids.
It will miss most of the big US population centers, but will still be a nice "movable feast."

We could all visit Elspode.
