Total solar eclipse hits Monday

As such, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has some tips and tricks on how you can capture an interesting photo of the celestial event.

In a shift from 38 years ago, numerous sky watchers this month will want to photograph the solar eclipse on their phone.

The public is invited to visit the observatory where they will have solar telescopes and solar glasses available for safely viewing the eclipse (if the sky is clear). NASA recommends purchasing a solar filter for your phone to prevent your camera lens from burning out.

He has several pairs of eclipse glasses, but he didn't stop there.

Debra Barger, dean of Regional & Continuing Education, said an almost-total solar eclipse occurring on the first day of classes inspired Academic Affairs and Student Affairs to collaborate on welcoming the community to share in this awesome natural phenomenon. See the map and check where you are here.

In Earth's history, there have been some 3 billion solar eclipses in the USA alone, though some were partial rather than total.

"We got solar covers for two telescopes so that we can safely look at the sun", he said.

Cohn to Remain in White House Economic Post, Official Says
And the White House Thursday said Trump also has abandoned plans to form an advisory council on infrastructure. Before joining the Trump administration, Cohn was the No. 2 executive Goldman.

Director of Astronomy at Three Rivers Foundation, Jeff Barton said, "The way it works out is, somewhere on the surface of the earth, you can see a total solar eclipse a couple of times a year".

To view the eclipse safely, Barger reminds people to avoid staring directly into the sun-even during the eclipse-and to use glasses specifically created to protect eyes from the sun's damaging rays.

Using a tripod will keep your camera steady and help set the angle of the shot before you begin shooting.

Have you tried looking up at the sun with your naked eye? You can drag the meter up and down to darken or lighten the exposure. Instead, NASA recommends investing in a zoom attachment, which cost anywhere from $20 - $40. Hold it at a distance, and you will see an inverted image of the sun projected on the paper screen through the pinhole. Symes also suggests using an app like NightCap Camera to brighten photos and capture more detail around the sun.

"That gives your camera/tripod/clamp system plenty of time to settle down and produce vibration-free images". Surely if you could move at the speed of the eclipse, you could see the whole thing, from coast to coast, rather than just settling for a few brief minutes on the plains of Wyoming or wherever you might manage to find yourself along the path of totality on Monday.
