Viewing eclipse

We will get a partial eclipse in N.J. Since special glasses are needed, consider ordering yours now, if you plan to view it. 

NOTE: DO NOT POINT YOUR iPHONE AT THE SUN/ECLIPSE. The sensors will probably overload.

For full eclipse, do not plan a location at this time. A friend reserved a room in Vt. I pointed out that it is best to wait to around April 6 and then drive/fly to where the sky will be free. That is how I ended up in Laramie, Wyoming in 2017.

Good luck.

The last solar eclipse that happened in our area, we watched in Memorial Park.

I posted this map in my Ohio thread. I'm smack dab in the middle of that line now. Of course, it's cloudy here an inordinate amount of the time, so my chances of viewing it are still slim.

I’m hoping I don’t have to drive to Oklahoma for this one.—-

a couple from 2017, Laramie, Wyoming. The black and white photo is "The Diamond." It is part of the eclipse that lasts about 10 seconds.

I was lucky enough to experience the one in 2017 in St Louis, where one of my grown children lives. It was nice to just be at someone's house rather than negotiating reservations and crowds. It was awesome! I don't know yet if I'll get a chance for this one. I have a few friends/family members "in the path" but haven't made any firm plans. But I do have glasses already, just in case. (They aren't that expensive, but could become hard to find closer to the day.)

As I understand it there will a different eclipse March 25.

The Earth will be between Sun and Moon; our shadow will be cast on the Moon.
