OK, OK we know...
But do you, really? Where will you be?
NASA Eclipse State Maps:
(includes viewable and printable maps showing the eclipse pathway and times)
You can see a partial eclipse anywhere in North America!
In Southern California?
See the 60-70% partial eclipse!
For our friends in Los Angeles, the Griffith Observatory posted a great .gif to show the partial eclipse.
What Do You Need For Viewing?
- Solar filters for eyes, cameras, and scopes:
Camera Obscura (indirect observation): a pinhole in a card to project the image of the Sun.
Sun Viewed through a solar filter
We really like their name for the eclipse:
THE ALL-AMERICAN TRANSCONTINENTAL TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!
Look for the patterns in the shadows from leaves on the ground.. or your house!
