On August 21, 2017 a 70 mile path of solar eclipse totality crosses 14 states from Oregon to South Carolina. Few of us will be within the filament of total darkness, but hundreds of millions from any location in North America, parts of South America, Europe and Africa can witness a partial solar eclipse. Enter your location in search field on the link below – I will be in Penticton B.C. on August 21. Courtesy the Time and Date link, I can expect a partial eclipse of 87% totality peaking at 10:25 am local time.
About 20:00, down here. I’ll pop outside to see. Hope for a cloudless evening.
I’m hoping for smoke free skies. With over 120 out of control wildfires burning in B.C. it’s anyone’s guess what the partial eclipse will look like. 🙂
Yes, I read your post on the fires. Sounds rough up there.
You’re far enough away, I presume?
Yes and no. For the past week smoke from fires several hundred miles away have inundated the coast prompting an air quality advisory. Haven’t seen blue skies in days and smoke obliterates visibility. The sun glows an ominous red and tonight the moon appeared as a unfamiliar alien landscape.
