Partial Solar Eclipse This Sunday! [POLL]

Here’s something to watch for Sunday, a partial solar eclipse!

I am fascinated by our universe. I love watching meteor showers, lunar and solar eclipses. A few weeks ago I stood out on our porch at night and just stared in amazement at how close Jupiter and Venus were to each other. Then a little later it was the Super Moon.

I’m not sure where my fascination comes from, but I do know it makes me take a step back and realize just how wonderful and amazing our world is.

We should be able to see the partial eclipse starting late Sunday afternoon until around sunset.

Only for places northwest of a line running roughly from San Diego to Winnipeg will the eclipse be visible from start to finish before the sun sets. Elsewhere, depending on where you are, if your sky is clear toward the west-northwest, the setting sun will appear slightly dented, deeply crescent-shaped, or even ring-shaped.

Since  it will be late in the afternoon and early evening , be sure you are in an area where the sun is visible. The first place that comes to mind? Lake Wright Patman!

Remember to never look directly at the sun! The safest and easiest ways to watch a solar eclipse are indirectly. Like the pin-hole project or by projection with binoculars or a telescope.

So get ready for a great show Sunday!
