 Hey, Space Placers!

21 days to the Solar Eclipse.

Have you decided what camera-lens-solar filter set up you are going to use? Even though the video is Nikon specific the info applies to other cameras as well.

You can get more photography info here.

What will be the weather at your observing site? 

Typical April (2000-2020) cloud cover measured from the Aqua spacecraft at approximately 1:30 p.m. local time from 2000 to 2020. The path of totality on April 8, 2024, is shown with red lines marking the northern and southern limits and a blue line up the center. Note the large number of major cities within the path or only a short drive away. Based on this map, Mexico and southern Texas offer the best prospects for a clear view of totality. Data: NASA.
