Pictures of the Great American EclipseπŸŒ”

It’s called this because. The last time this was viewed in the entire country was 79. Here are some images. Unfortunately, I’m not on the path of totality so, I don’t get the shadow or see where it looks like a diamond ring and Bailey’s Β Beads. So, I didn’t see much. Here is the images.

I went live on Periscope!

Are you ready for totality?πŸŒ•πŸŒ–πŸŒ—πŸŒ’πŸŒ“πŸŒ”

You will need a DSLR camera. An iPhone will not cut it.

You will need a filter. They go for $20 on amazon. Depends on the size and finally you will need glasses. Not just any glasses. Ones that are ISO and CE certified. Go to your nearest planetarium for glasses and ask an eye doctor if the glasses are safe. If you’re having anxiety about using them.

The eclipse starts at 9:05 am. The sun will be covered by the moon by 10:30 or so. Which is safe to view without glasses. You only have 2 to 2 in a half minutes to view. Then, immediately put the glasses back on. So you don’t damage the retinas in your eyes. Ends around 11am or so. So, have fun!
