So my son and I go to St. Joseph, MO to see the eclipse. And the clouds roll in. And it rains a bit. We get to see some of the partial before totality, but only get to see 4 seconds of totality. This is the pic I took with my phone:
The best photo I’ve seen from St. Joseph was this one.
Hope you saw a better eclipse than we did. Even so, experiment_1 said that it was worth it.
On the road going to St Joseph, MO to see the eclipse, weather willing.
I’ve arrived in Kansas City to see the eclipse on Monday. I’ll go to St. Joseph on Monday, bright and early (to avoid everyone else, ha!). Hopefully it won’t be raining.
So, there’s this total solar eclipse thing happening on August 21st. If you’re not going to be in the 70 mile wide band of totality that crosses the US, then you might want to see it using one of these livestreaming sites. Especially if you’ll be trapped indoors in a cube farm.
This article explains that every year the Earth produces a certain amount of renewable resources. On August 2nd, humans have used up that amount of resources. This means that as we continue to use up resources, we are using up resources that the Earth will not be able to renew for next year.
