Solar eclipse

Post by 108dt206 » Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 2:20 AM

Well this Friday around 09-30 gmt we've got a 95% solar eclipse over here in sunny Scotland.. I'll be on a train going to work but hopefully there is very little cloud cover so we can get a good look..

I love when this happens, we have a couple partial eclipses coming up but a big eclipse in the states will by Aug 21, 2017, it will shade the entire USA for a couple hours, don't think it will matter much, the "doomsday preppers" are predicting and asteroid to hit on Sept 24 of this year wiping everything out.

I'd heard that this was happening.. So a dates been set now.. Now I'm in Scotland a heard it last month.. Only 18 months ago there was a big conference in Europe about asteroid strikes and what plans or lack of them were in place for just such an occasion .. I suppose it's just coincidence..[WINKING FACE][WINKING FACE][WINKING FACE]

Yep. On Svalbard eclipse will be 100%. Afraid it will be cloudy here, but I will charge my camera and find my weldglass, just in case.

I already have made plans to be in SC at Lake Marion at 2 pm two years ago. It will be a long total eclipse lasting just over 2 minutes going right down the center of the lake. It is projected to cross the country and end up in Oregon. I know that 95% seems like a lot, but I have seen an eclipse at 95% and you would be surprised how much 5% of Sunshine will keep the sky lit up.

I always wanted to see a full total eclipse, and unless I die before then you know where I will be in August of 2017.

Respectfully as always,

Nice pic KDDL, got it as it was peeking through the clouds. I've got so many filters for the camera there won't be a problem with pics except for clouds.
Also don't worry JJD, I have my welding helmet to protect my eyes, just have to remove the cheaters.

It will be interesting to see what affect a total eclipse will have on Skip. KDDL, I know you weren't on the radio because you were watching the eclipse. Does anyone know or have had experience with radio wave propagation during these incredible solar events?

Respectfully as always,
Best Regards,
