Solar Eclipse Reports Needed!

Dr. Mike is preparing an article on the August Solar Eclipse for the Journal of the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers (ALPO). Please share your eclipse story!

This is what he needs:

Name

Where you observed the eclipse

Weather…

Equipment used; only eyeballs are okay!

Eclipse observations/impressions:

partial solar eclipse (those who saw only the partial solar eclipse are very-welcome to submit partial-only observations)

temperature changes (especially if you have data)

Animals’ reactions

shadow

sunset effect

planets and stars visible

shadow bands visible

diamond ring/Baily’s beads (both 2nd and 3rd contacts)

totality observations/impressions

other observations

>these observations can be “non-scientific” and even emotional comments.

Photos (NOT necessary, though):

partial

total

>Please include camera, telescope/lens, exposure length, photo time (if possible), and highest-quality images available; all photo details if possible

landscape

shadow

sunset/sunrise effect

PEOPLE!

 

Finally:

How many total solar eclipses have you attempted?

How many total solar eclipses have you seen?
