So, how many of you are dying to experience, or have already experienced, a total solar eclipse once in your life? I'm seriously thinking about flying over to the southern Aussie desert to catch the one happening at sunset in a little over a year from now. (Several miles northwest of Adelaide, I believe.).. The next one in the States won't happen until 2017, I think.. and it's only going to brush the Northwest.

We had one in 1999...it was a bit disappointing...it was eerie and it went a bit chilly. I think being at work and miserable at the time affected my enjoyment of it.

james, Monday, 29 October 2001 01:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

That eclipse was wicked! Everything went black and white (well, almost) for a couple of minutes, it was weird.

its just the sun and the moon.

My enjoyment of the 1999 eclipse was greatly enhanced by seeing Jasper Carrot in eclipse glasses on Hampstead Heath.

You know, going to that part of the desert is Full-On. I was there at the end of January and it is amazing out there. It's hot too. Didn't see any eclipses but I saw desert and long straight roads and it was HOT and DRY and DUSTY and then it rained and it was MUDDY and SLIPPERY and DANGEROUS and I did some serious 4WD driving in a brand new Nissan Patrol 4L Turbo Diesel - I even got to do 180's in the mud. Oh, and I saw cows and sheep and emus and kangas and a small black cat about 400 km from the closest civilisation. Quite bizarre.

toraneko, Wednesday, 31 October 2001 01:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Well, the eclipse will be December 4th, 2002 at sunset around Denial Bay...

I've been to Lyndhurst and Leigh Creek (Lyndhurst is in the path of the eclipse). They are really amazing places to visit. It is hard to believe that people actually eke out an existense in such a harsh environment.

The first time I saw Mir orbiting in the sky was better. And comet Hale-Bopp, that was just beautiful.

james, Saturday, 3 November 2001 01:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Had a near full one in Toronto area in the 80s and one pretty cool one pass through Halifax area a couple years ago. Whats the cycle on those things? 29.5 years or somethign wacky like that.

rode my bike out on to the downs this morning to see this thing, but it was so cloudy here, i only got the briefest and dingiest of glimpses. i enjoyed the odd crepuscular atmosphere though. passed a bunch of black-clad witchy looking people all assembling to celebrate at this little hindu temple thing we have here in the middle of nowhere, that was a bit creepy. found a nice spot by a dew pond, had visions of getting a nice photo of the eclipse reflected on the surface of the water, but the combination of shitty ipod camera and the thick cloud cover put paid to that. also the wind really picked up as the temperature dropped so this pond was a mess of muddy ripples anyway. sat amongst the cow turds and listened to some bonged-out sinister hippy nonsense to try and really feel the vibe, but that was quite creepy too and it made me keep checking over my shoulder to make sure the witchy folk hadn't crept up through the gorse behind me. so i switched that off and listened to the wind and the birds instead. poor confused birds: a bunch of pied wagtails going off to roost again so shortly after waking, gulls and crow gathering in their little flocks and dithering about in the sky like bored teenagers in a mcdonalds carpark. watched the cars switching their lights on in the distance. was joined by two dog walkers yacking on about i dunno, schools and stuff, and their fucking black labrador jumped into the fucking pond and started flubbering about all over the place, so that roused me from my cosmic ruminations. got back on my bike, came in to work.

cgi bubka (NickB), Friday, 20 March 2015 11:25 (nine years ago) link

I remember I watched the '99 one on the tv screen in the Dublin Tower. Now I just saw the one today through a bunch of clouds and the moon got in the way.
Took a lot of photos but my camera battery ran out before i could get them transfered to my computer or see if anything came out. Phone was also running really low.

Will see what I got in a while but presumably only after having seen photos from everybody else.

the clouds parted just after maximum coverage here in glasgow - it was pretty amazing:

Could not find eclipse glasses anywhere (had been looking for the past week, by which time they'd already sold out from basically everywhere online), too lazy to build a pinhole camera affair, was in the office anyway: watched it online, only for my boss to come in late and go "WHHOOOAOOA did you ALL SEEEE" - uh no, we were here in the office <sadface>.

Still, saw the last one (though not from the path of totality), could go somewhere ridiculously hot and in the middle of an ocean or desert to see some more I guess.

I was asleep

Apparently the whole thing was hidden behind a wall of grey cloud here so I missed nothing. It's a lovely day now tho, sitting in the (warm!) sunshine drinking a beer by the river, perfect equinox vibes. Got grazed by a trio of gulls emerging from the river, but the impressive wingbeats were not enough to disturb my tranquility or hair (it was only minutes later it occurred to me to check that the dampness I'd felt was indeed river water rather than guano, which would have spoiled my mood a bit). Took a photograph of two German women drinking stout. Maybe the moon is super but I'm appreciating the sun rn

He wrote his second book in 1989, It Doesn't Have To Be Like This, an outline of his views on the environment, and was involved with the Green Party from 1988 to 1991, soon becoming one of their four Principal Speakers, a position the party created in lieu of a leader. The Observer called him "the Greens' Tony Blair."[17] He was regularly present at high-profile events. He was invited in 1989 to debate animal rights during a televised debate at the Royal Institute of Great Britain, alongside Tom Regan, Mary Warnock and Germaine Greer, and in September 1990 his name appeared on advertisements for a children's charity along with Audrey Hepburn, Woody Allen and other celebrities.[18]

Despite his success, he wrote that 1989 was a time of considerable personal despair for him, and it was during this period that he said he began to feel a presence around him.[19] In March 1990, while standing in a newsagent's, he felt that a magnetic force was pulling his feet to the ground, and said he heard a voice tell him to look at a particular section of books. One of the books was by Betty Shine, a psychic healer in Brighton. He decided to visit her to ask for help with his arthritis.[20] Shine told him during their third meeting that she had a message for him from the spirit world. She said that he had been sent to heal the Earth, and would become famous but would face opposition. The spirit world was going to pass ideas to him, which he would speak about to others, sometimes not understanding the words himself. She said he would write five books in three years; that in 20 years there would be a different kind of flying machine, where we could go wherever we wanted and time would have no meaning; and there would be earthquakes in unusual places, because the inner earth was being destabilised by having oil taken from the seabed.

Bollocks it is, mate.

I quite enjoyed the event. For a quarter of an hour I liked my colleagues more than usual.

I may come to regret buying eclipse viewing glasses from a bloke on Oxford's Cowley Road for two quid, though.

If I go blind tonight, it has been nice knowing you all (kind of).

djh, Friday, 20 March 2015 20:05 (nine years ago) link

In the scheme of solar system events nothing has topped Hale Bopp for me. Eclipses are very pretty but I don't get this shit where adults talk like they previously held pre-enlightenment beliefs until they saw a solar eclipse, like gravitational force doesn't quite convey to them that we are on a spinning rock! A couple of months ago I was reading about that rogue star (with a dimmer satellite companion) that grazed the oort cloud in a cosmic near miss incident 70000 years ago, that is what you call a solar event, although I guess it probably just looked like a very bright star from earth's vantage but at least there wasn't Brian Cox + BBC News 24 back then.

xelab, Friday, 20 March 2015 21:14 (nine years ago) link

I live right next to an observatory and so there were a bunch of (mostly amateur) scientists and film crews and school groups out with equipment and it was cloudy but in a thin way so the sun poked through enough to see the eclipse steadily. It was only about a 70% eclipse down here but I got to see it through equipment at maximum.

schools weren't supposed to let kids out to watch it because they are dumbasses but they went out anyway, answering the kosmik imperative I guess. my son said one kid stared at it a really long time and then his vision was all yellow afterward, I dunno, maybe that's worth it.

I watched it from Morrisburg, Ontario on the St. Lawrence waterfront, in the path of totality. The full eclipse was incredible. The folks next to us got some amazing photos with visible solar flares.

You mean, as in it was too cloudy to see? Or did the eclipse skip Boston lol?

ok so here in ne Knoxville the eclipse lacked luster. we were 89% totality here. I guess that 11% matters

stwahberrymilkgirlll, Monday, 8 April 2024 20:09 (two weeks ago) link

the sublime majesty of the totality was slightly tainted by everyone in our neighborhood blasting off fireworks for the entire time but still a good show overall. absentmindedly glanced at it unprotected for a moment like a moron but dont appear to have gone blind yet as far as i can tell

waste of compute (One Eye Open), Monday, 8 April 2024 20:11 (two weeks ago) link

it was already overcast and then at peak time -3:08 - it was p indistinguishable ( i never know how to spell that wd) from moments prior.
the 2017 eclipse was something to behold

stwahberrymilkgirlll, Monday, 8 April 2024 20:12 (two weeks ago) link

I feel like it was only in the couple of minutes leading up to the totality that I really noticed any difference really (other than by looking at the sun with my glasses), so I guess you really need >95% to really start having noticeable changes to darkness and temperature.

silverfish, Monday, 8 April 2024 20:13 (two weeks ago) link

^^^^ Yes, here as well; peaked just over an hour ago, as foretold. Sky was full of grim cloud cover since morning, but cleared to blue skies after noon.

(86% here, no perceptual darkness)

Hongro Hongro Hippies (Myonga Vön Bontee), Monday, 8 April 2024 20:33 (two weeks ago) link

It was definitely a lot darker here. As if someone attached a dimmer switch to the sun

97% eclipse in Washington I think, it got pretty dim. I saw a sliver of sunlight hit a power line, and for that moment, the powerline was just...so...beautiful (tearing up because I gave myself cataracts looking at the sun).

it definitely got dim and shadowy here. like me.

Will the real dim shady please stand up ..

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:01 (two weeks ago) link

95% in Boston, apparently, but really the darkness was barely noticeable (I didn't use special glasses, was just sitting in the yard waiting for the gloom to envelope me.) If you hadn't known about the eclipse you'd have just assumed some random cloud cover passed over.

henry s, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:02 (two weeks ago) link

you guys, it looked really cool. 90% or whatever. and i hate everything.

scott seward, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:06 (two weeks ago) link

Clear skies but only 50% coverage in SoCal, though I still noticed a change in the light (not so much darker, but oddly "different," like approaching dusk but without any of the golden-ness of dusk). I work next to an animal shelter and the dogs were barking more than usual.

nickn, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:06 (two weeks ago) link

scott seward, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:08 (two weeks ago) link

It's very cloudy in Austin, and the clouds peaked right for me right at the point of total eclipse. Still, I was able to catch a few seconds of it, and quite a lot of partial eclipse before and after. Got a whole bunch of cool videos on my phone.

Muad'Doob (Moodles), Monday, 8 April 2024 21:08 (two weeks ago) link

the dimness did have an ominous feel to it. but maybe i was imagining that.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:10 (two weeks ago) link

91% occlusion here. It was too cloudy to see the disc, but it got dark enough for the streetlights to come on. My wife and daughter were at a park in Conway AR with mostly clear skies and said it was amazing.

Ippei's on a bummer now (WmC), Monday, 8 April 2024 21:13 (two weeks ago) link

The peak here (NYC) was 90%, which was enough to give the light outside a kind of eerie quality. I think it's because the light was dimmer than usual, but the spectrum of light was whiter, like when the sun is directly overhead, rather than the redder light typical of sunsets and sunrises (when its light passes through more of the earth's atmosphere).

o. nate, Monday, 8 April 2024 21:27 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah that's a good point, it was stilly fully and recognizably daylight out but it wasn't any yellower. But yeah that 10% that we weren't occluded made it almost unnoticeable. It's remarkable that we normally get 90% more sun exposure than that and it feels almost the same (to a person) but makes a huge difference to the natural world and the available energy.

It definitely does - I found this video from 2017 just to get an idea what totality would be like and at the end the guy mentions how even the smallest sliver of sun makes a huge difference (and you see it by how fast everything darkens and lights up - it’s not very gradual, it's surprisingly fast).

Andy the Grasshopper, Monday, 8 April 2024 22:12 (two weeks ago) link

It's really cool how some of the accounts I found from lifelong chasers talk about how various animals react differently. Like bees will suddenly swarm back to their hive, cows will start walking back to the barn, some marine mammals will pop up to the surface and kind of look around, and of course the crickets start chirping...next total eclipse passes through Spain (between Madrid and Barcelona) and Iceland in 2026 and I think a year after that it'll pass through Spain again. I've been meaning to go to Iceland someday and have been hoping to go back to Spain soon so who knows, would be great to make that work.

IM me if UR a fellow millennial who read Edward Bloor's Tangerine in eight grade and were left wondering (after the big reveal) if it might actually be okay to look directly at the sun without protection during an eclipse

I spent this eclipse (Southern New Hampshire, 97% obscuration) sitting alone in the middle of a town hall green and looking at the sun every few minutes through a cardboard pinhole camera. I got a barebones view of the progression and noted a slight dimness/chill, but overall it was kind of a bummer, and I was mostly just disappointed that I didn't have the foresight to get the special glasses. I looked directly at the sun for a second during peak coverage, but the only impression I got was "IT BRIGHT". oh well

Yes, that's what I found in the moment of totality. Just the shift from 99.5% to 100% coverage seemed incredibly dramatic. The light on the horizons was amazing too, like simultaneous sunsets in both directions.

jmm, Monday, 8 April 2024 22:35 (two weeks ago) link

I didn't even realize until getting there that when the sun is fully covered, it's safe to take off your glasses and look at the eclipse.

Little late posting this, but this is pretty cool: weirdest things that happen during a total solar eclipse.

This is hilarious:

“It turns out that Galapagos tortoises had a remarkable reaction,” Hartstone-Rose says. “Right at the moment of totality, they started mating behaviour. As in, they literally started breeding in front of everybody, before our eyes.”
