Timmonsville library to host solar eclipse viewing party

Timmonsville library to host solar eclipse viewing party Timmonsville library to host solar eclipse viewing party

In the moments just before and after totality, for centuries, total eclipse viewers have reported seeing thin wavy shadowy lines, rapidly moving parallel to each other on "plain-colored surfaces". In addition, this solar eclipse is set to be the most photographed in history when it happens August 21, with many bringing their cameras with them. He is a lifetime amateur astronomer, telescope builder and a member of the Central Missouri Amateur Astronomers, Denver Astronomical Society, and Westcliffe Dark Sky Committee.

Are you ready for the solar eclipse? The only exception would be that brief period when the sun is totally blocked by the moon.

If you're looking for a prime place to view the total solar eclipse on August 21, the Kansas City Library downtown might be a good option.

For now, a total solar eclipse is visible from somewhere on the Earth's surface about once every 18 months, on average.

Over the course of an hour and 20 minutes, the moon will cover more and more of the sun, giving the sun a surreal crescent appearance. When looking through the safety glasses, it's just like looking at the moon, except it will be passing over the Sun.

Path of the eclipse through South Carolina, NASA.

The farm, which normally features a corn maze and other children's activities, has been turned into a campground with 300 campsites in prime eclipse viewing territory. This is the first total solar eclipse visible over the USA since 1981 and the first since 1918 to be seen coast to coast.

Without taking precautions, Dulsky warns, "You can damage your retina". All you have to do is turn your back to the sun and look in it. Pamela Harman, an education manager with the SETI institute, will explore why eclipses happen and how to safely view them.

The Houston Public Library on East Cedar St.is hosting a viewing party, complete with 200 pairs of official eclipse viewing glasses. You'll have to get within a foot or so of where you are viewing it to get the image in focus.

Several of my professional solar filters are manufactured by Lunt Solar Systems.

The good news is that these eclipse glasses are not particularly expensive. Powered by SkySafari 5, this interactive widget is ideal for all eclipse observers, whether you'll be in the path of totality or not. And make sure there are no holes in the film. Be sure to order them immediately, since supplies may be dwindling!

It's like "a magnifying glass on a leaf when you were a kid", an optometrist told Angela Fritz, who is an atmospheric scientist and The Post's deputy weather editor. Once you have those, you're ready to see the show. He says Middle Georgia won't get a full view of the solar ring. The least expensive option is to buy Baader AstroSolar Safety Film (or a comparable product), which looks and feels like aluminum foil. According to Wikipedia: "The total eclipse will have a magnitude of 1.0306 and will be visible from a narrow corridor through the United States". The ISO has also been working with gas pipeline companies, utilities and generators to procure additional reserve and regulation capacity, both of which will be needed to grapple with the potential for oversupply and frequency regulation issues after the eclipse, as solar rapidly ramps up its output. Ditto for professional astronomical organizations (including college and university physics and astronomy departments) and amateur-astronomy clubs.

Read the consumer comments before you buy. Check our list of reputable vendors and buy from one of them.

You can find these glasses in tons of places right now, but not all of them are created equal. "You may notice some effects with darkening". Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse viewers compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard adopted in 2015.
