Subject: The Solar Eclipse

Written By: Slim95 on 08/20/17 at 1:12 am

Is anybody gonna be in the vicinity of the total solar eclipse on Monday August 21st? It's gonna be in the middle of the U.S. Where I live we will have a partial eclipse with 80% of the moon covering the sun. It should be a cool experience. Unfortunately solar glasses are sold out everywhere so I have to find some other ways to get them.

I'm pretty excited. However, like you, I can't find eclipse glasses anywhere. Hopefully someone at work has a pair, but I'm going to make a pinhole camera instead.

Make sure you use solar glasses rather than regular sunglasses. The sun during the eclipse is much, much brighter than usual so it is very dangerous for the eyes to look at it without special equipment.

Thank God our family and I got our glasses weeks before everybody started getting them at the last minute. Solar Eclipse glasses in my hometown have been sold out the last few days, and we had a bunch of calls from people trying to request for solar eclipse glasses lol! I'll be in Marietta, Georgia with my college friends looking at the eclipse with glasses on, and I'll try to record the sky getting darker with my camera if there's enough data on there.

Here in Marietta, Georgia the moon covered the sun about 95%. The sky got darker but it kinda felt like sunset with the sun in the middle of the sky, it didn't get completely dark. If only I had driven further up north I could have experienced it getting completely dark! It was a cool experience, but it's over now!  ;)

The path of totality crossed southeast Nebraska today, so my brother and I drove to a lake about 70 miles away and met up with our family. For most of the morning the skies were overcast and we hit a few rain showers on the way to the lake and we were worried that the day was going to be a bust but when we got to our viewing spot the sky started clearing up a bit.

We never did have completely clear skies but the clouds had thinned out enough to where we could get a good view of the sun. (We all had acquired our eclipse glasses several weeks prior.)

As the moment of totality approached, my brother-in-law said he was going to the top of a hill that was in front of us, because he said that one of the side effects of a total solar eclipse is that it gives the appearance of a sunset in all directions. We could also feel the temperature drop as the moon covered the sun.

When totality finally hit, it indeed was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced in my life. It was even more amazing than I had expected. It was truly surreal.

The other thing that blew my mind was, as the eclipse was waning, when the moon hit a certain point the temperature almost instantly shot up 10, maybe 20 degrees.

Again it wasn't perfect since there was a bit of cloud cover but nonetheless it was an awesome experience.

Looking at that map, not so perfect for us.  :-\\  We are a bit south of the path of totality.  :\'( :\'(

We are just going to have to go visit the kids in the Burlington area that day.

So, judging from that path... where I am is on the north side. Still, people in my area got to see it well.

There was no eclipse here yesterday, but I did watch it on TV. Maybe in 2024 I will have the chance to see it happen.

It was overcast of course, so no I did not. I did see photos people took though and it would have been cool to be where they got to see it get dark during the day, but oh well.
