Looking further down the road, we will get a chance to see totality here with the eclipse of April 8, 2024 - the northern edge of the narrow band of the umbra of our moon's shadow will pass right over IU Kokomo. "Also, never look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope or binoculars, even if you are wearing eclipse glasses or holding solar filters". However, it will only visible in certain areas.
Why is it not safe to look at the sun even when only a small part of it is visible?
Campus astronomy professor Alex Filippenko added that in a total solar eclipse, "the moon is perfectly aligned with the sun ... and reveals the corona, the sun's outer atmosphere".
We don't see a total solar eclipse with every new moon because there are other stipulations, too. It will last a little over two hours, during which time the Moon will fully transit across the face of the Sun. Complete information and an official countdown is online at eclipseville.com/.
Earlybirds who plan on watching a piece of sun go missing should do not forget to be safe. Looking at the sun directly with no eye protection will damage your eyes; an eclipse of any degree does not change this. Eclipse viewing is included with general museum admission.
GFC-MSU will have approximately 500 eclipse-safe viewing glasses available to students, faculty, staff and the community on a first-come, first-served basis during the viewing.
Plan ahead and wake up early. Using a fixed aperture of f/8 to f/16, try shutter speeds between 1/1000 to 1/4 second to find the optimal setting, which you can then use to take images during the partial stages of the eclipse. Those would be the things that you'd want to be especially mindful of if you're going to view the eclipse.
If they accidentally view the eclipse, what do they need to do? But only welders glass of at least Shade 12 is safe to use.
Inspect your glasses beforehand. "Old fashioned pinhole viewers work just as good. and they cost nothing".
The solar eclipse is just 10 days away, but we are still getting lots of questions from viewers. The path of totality will not cross the Golden Triangle, but should lead to another partial eclipse for the area. Stick your head through the hole and stand with your back to the sun.
Don't attempt to view the eclipse through any other means, whether it's a camera, telescope, binoculars or other device.
