Eclipse Experience Zoom Series
Eclipse Experience: Imaging the Eclipse
This program is only offered through Zoom.
This presentation will focus on what to expect from the total solar eclipse coming up on April 8th and how to plan for it. We’ll talk about the phases of a total solar eclipse and the tools and resources you can use to make sure you don’t miss any of it. We’ll cover how to safely view or photograph the sun before, during, and after totality using a range of equipment like solar glasses, binoculars, and sun funnels. And we’ll discuss interesting visual phenomena unique to solar eclipses that you can photograph even more easily and safely than the sun itself.
