    Are any of you planning to see the 2024 eclipse in the US? Will you be doing any science or just watching?

    Absolutely I will be watching with my family. We take photographs and monitor the temperature, but mostly we will be enjoying the show. Don't miss it! You MUST be in the zone of totality to be able to see the amazing corona! Only in the zone of totality, and ONLY during totality, you can take off your special solar filters (or "eclipse glasses"). The rest of the time you need special filters or projection techniques. There will also be an "annular" eclipse on October 14, 2023, but for that one you will need special glasses all the time - it is never safe to look directly at the sun during an annular eclipse. I have a website with more information and will be adding more in the next few weeks

    Me too, me too!

    I won't even pretend it is for anything other than just the awe of seeing a full solar eclipse.

    If there is any way for you to be in the path of totality, definitely do it! It is actually hard to even really describe how amazing it is.

    What Dr. Pat said! Yes, I will indeed be watching, but I have not yet made plans to watch from a specific place. But I intend to view both the annular eclipse in 2023 and the total eclipse in 2024.
