Default North American Solar eclipse 8/21/2017

I'm not going to be in Oregon on August 21st, but I think I'll try to capture what I can see in Redmond.

I just got a solar filter to fit on my telephoto lens: My telephoto lens is not really adequate for the job, but I'm not spending a lot of money getting a better lens - I'm already out $60 on a solar filter.

I have some practice I need to do - this is the best I got so far, and it's very processed.

It's coming right over us, well if I drive south a little. I may need to look at a solar lens filtery thing. Or maybe take pictures off a reflection or something.


Get out the special glasses. :tmcool: :shades: :rcg: :cool: :foggy:

I wish I had the time and money to come to Oregon for this astronomical event, but instead I am driving up to NE Kansas.

You'd never find a place to stay this late in the season if you did.

All the state parks in the path are already booked (most were booked a year in advance) and hotels/motels/etc. have been gouging customers.

I think Ding has shirttail relatives in the Bend/Redmond area. But then, they may have sold out their spare floor space and back yard already, too.

I have places I can stay, that isn't the problem. It is the time and expense of getting there. The land area affected by a total eclipse is massive, so finding a spot to be in the umbra isn't a problem. We can just pull off a highway or side road somewhere.

It slipped my mind, I do seem to recall now that Ding mentioned relations in central Oregon.

Coast is one of the better places to see the eclipse, but central Oregon would still be very good.

Hmmm...I'd think the coast would be too likely to have cloud cover. I'd think that central Oregon would be just the ticket. And, as Ding says, just pulling over in to the verge in most places will do just fine.

I keep getting the emergency services in Oregon asking me if I can volunteer for the impending Eclipse disaster. A lot the area in the path of 100% eclipse is mountainous roads, no cell service or service stations. Gridlock there would be very, very bad.

Btw, why is the eclipse going from west to east when the earth spins the opposite way?

I did, NASA provides animations with the moon flying around the earth with great speed (it takes 27 days according to the current model), or they have animations with the earth spinning the wrong way! As if the sun rises in the west and sets in the east!!

Iow, there is no valid scientific explanation that fits our current understanding of the heliocentric spinning ball model.

Well, I guess that settles it then. I have to make new plans for the 21st since the eclipse will not be happening.

Its going to happen, its just that what we will observe does not work with the current spinning globe model.

Well see that's where I'm confused since I'm pretty sure it is the math of the spinning globe model that allows us to know very precisely when and where this is going to go down. I guess NASA is hiding the real math from us, huh?

Look at this shit, the moon is moving faster than the earth's spin.

This model created by NASA is incorrect for the spinning globe model.

NASA admits eclipses have been predicted for thousands of years before any of the fancy maths...

Additionally, the shadow we observe is way too small for the current spinning globe model.
