Solar Eclipse 2017

Recommended Posts

Got a chance to view the solar eclipse today. I was at work (The University of Calgary) and there was a large viewing party set up by the astronomy department. I didn't get there enough to get my free pair of viewing glasses, but some kid gave his to me :o

Quite a bit of people. This is next to the engineering building, and more people came in after I took the shot.

Getting the equipment ready.

And of course, I took one on Snapchat through the solar eclipse glasses.

Was in the path close enough to get about 97% and caught this pic of "Shadow Bands"

That's amazing. In LA we didn't get much, a 60% is just slightly darker outside.

It was good viewing here. I couldn't see much of it because of the trees in the backyard.

:P Go further - at 97% coverage it's worth viewing.
