Every time there is a solar eclipse, is the shadow of totality always 90 miles across? Or is it sometimes wider/narrower, depending on the distance of the Moon from Earth at that time?

I've still got another 23 minutes to go (we're only getting about 75% coverage), but it is pretty dang quiet right now too.

Mind you it's drizzling so there's not much bird activity during rain anyways.

I'm hoping it gets dreary darkish under this cloud cover just so that I can at least get a feel for what you all are getting to see right now.

Once in a lifetime thing.

Roughly every 70 years if you're living in the same location the entire time.

Eclipse via zip code.


Thankyou for that link! Chicago will be 86% at 1:38pm(CT). There is enough cirrus in front of the sun so that you can look at it directly without glasses. Neat.

Watch the shadow cast by the trees. They will form crescents one way before and the other direction after!

By which I mean look closely at the shadow cast by the individual leaves...

Is anyone having an eclipse party today? My coworker and I planned a small party for the staff and volunteers today. We had eclipse cookies (yellow tinted sugar cookies iced with chocolate to look like the phases of the eclipse) and water with garnishes of sliced lemons, oranges, and starfruit.

We also put together some sun and moon themed music and built a community solar eclipse viewer out of a cereal box because absolutely every retailer and library has been out of the special sunglasses since early last week.

The weather has been a bit unpredictable today. We've run the gamut from full sun to light rain, but right now the radar is showing nothing for the next 2 hours so there's still hope yet to see as close to totality as possible in our area.

I am living in Nashville and its supposed to be the closest major city in the path. Unfortunately I don't have a way to get any good pics, but it should be a good show...bout 20min from totality now. Glad i got some eclipse glasses before they sold out!

I discovered I can aim my tablet at the sun and take pictures.
We won't be near totality for another half hour and even then it will only be about 88%.

I took this photo with my Samsung Galaxy S4
What is cool is that you can not see the sun eclipsing directly, but if you look at the glare (purple area at the 4 oclock to the sun) you can see the eclipse!!!



Right click the image to see it larger.

We have full bright sunshine today. Just an occasional fluffy white cloud. The kind of day that just says summer.
