We would like to thank everyone for a wonderful eclipse event yesterday! From the helping clean up to pickup going so smoothly, it couldn’t have happened without you!
We have over 100 pictures to sort through and then we will post them here. Here is another preview of some.

Please be aware that taking pictures of the eclipse with your smart phone could possibly damage the image sensor.
WSB-TV explains in a video how this happens and shows how you can use a pair of safety glasses as a filter, making sure you are not looking directly at the sun yourself. Continue reading “Photographing Eclipse and Cell Phone Damage”
Students building a
Sun Funnel for the Eclipse Viewing Party on Monday, August 21.
They constructed it in class then took it outside to test it and fine tune it. This is one of the 3 viewing stations we will have in addition to each student having a pair of solar glasses.

How we expect it to look during the eclipse
With 4 days until the 2017 Solar Eclipse, we thought we’d share some of the cool information we have found.
First, please be assured that we have purchased legitimate eclipse glasses from a source TSE17 , not a third party vendor, recommended by the American Astronomical Society from a link on the NASA Eclipse viewing recommendations. They have been verified by an accredited testing laboratory to meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for such products. Continue reading “4 Days until the Eclipse!”
