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:
Where you observed the eclipse
Equipment used; only eyeballs are okay!
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)
planets and stars visible
shadow bands visible
diamond ring/Baily’s beads (both 2nd and 3rd contacts)
>these observations can be “non-scientific” and even emotional comments.
Photos (NOT necessary, though):
>Please include camera, telescope/lens, exposure length, photo time (if possible), and highest-quality images available; all photo details if possible
How many total solar eclipses have you attempted?
How many total solar eclipses have you seen?
