You might be aware that there is going to be a total (depending on where you live) solar eclipse on Monday morning. In Vancouver, the eclipse will be about 80%. This is a pretty important astronomical event yet I haven’t done a single thing to prepare for it. A co-worker of mine is in Oregon where the eclipse will be total. He took a day off from work to experience this. Two other people I know are also in Oregon for the eclipse. I didn’t even build a small pinhole project for it. Some people go their whole lives without having a chance to see a solar eclipse. I’ll probably will be commuting when it starts. I’ll hopefully be at work when it’s at the maximum of totality for this region. Perhaps someone will lend me their projector?
