Aug. 1, 2008 Solar Eclipse


On August 1st, 2008, there will be a total solar eclipse for some portions of the world. The actual total solar eclipse will only be viewable from Northern Canada, Northern Russia (Siberia), Western Mongolia, and most of China. Most of North America, Europe, and Asia will experience a partial solar eclipse. The timeline for the August 1, 2008 solar eclipse is as follows:

08:04 UTC -- Partial eclipse begins.
09:11 UTC -- Total eclipse begins.
10:21 UTC -- Greatest eclipse.
11:21 UTC -- Total eclipse ends.
12:38 UTC -- Partial eclipse ends.

All times are UTC. To find your local time, add or subtract your local offset from UTC. For more info, see here: Time Zone Converter

One of the most interesting things about this eclipse is that in some of the far Northern reaches of the planet, there will be a "midnight eclipse". A midnight eclipse is an event where the eclipse occurs in a region that does not experience night during that time of year.

SAFETY FIRST!

Although you will want to look at this eclipse, DO NOT LOOK AT A SOLAR ECLIPSE without proper safety equipment. Doing so can cause permanent and irreversible eye damage and possibly blindness.

In order to safely view this eclipse use a pinhole eclipse viewer. Here's how to make one for cheap.

Sean - I'd almost forgoten about the eclipse until I saw your post and read the times which peaked my interest until I double checked.

I'm on vacation about a 2 hour drive from a spot that will see less than a minute of the eclipse :(

A couple of useful links:

The eclipse calculator @ http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/SolarEclipses.php

And a map @ http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2008/TSE2008iau/TSE2008-fig01.GIF

That came from the main site @ http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2008/TSE2008.html

After my morning coffee I remembered that I knew a while back that the eclipse would be out of reach.

She told me she just didn’t see herself as a leader and didn’t realize that other people at the school saw her as a leader as well
