Wanna know how much of the solar eclipse you'll see in your area of USA? Just type in your zip code, and the animation will show you what you'll witness and what time....click here

This web page, from the same site as above mentioned shows and explains solar eclipse and when/where viewing will be in the future. Very Interesting.

A couple of questions have crossed my mind on this upcoming event...

1-- Will I be able to get a photo of the eclipse with my smartphone?  The answer is:  YES

2-- Will the sun ruin my smartphone during the eclipse? The answer is: NO

I wouldn't want to place my good camera in harm's way for this. Mainly 'cause I have no filter for the lens. And, even tho I will try and get a photo of the eclipse on Monday, I will use my smartphone instead, whilst the photos may not be the 'best' quality, I will have a 'record' to share.

PS....I will bet a lottery ticket it'll be overcast and we won't see this here in South Texas!  Seems to be the standard around here.

  1. OH, I hope you get photos and show us! It is too hard to find eclipse glasses here now, seems they have all sold out. A friend is having an eclipse party on her front porch and is giving everyone glasses. I am still too scared to watch! I am playing it safe and taking no chances.

    1. Ya, they're sold out around this town also. But, oh well, I'll try to use the cellphone, if possible.

    1. That's what I will probably have to do since the clouds are building up around home. Darn.

  5. Hi Anni! Thanks for the link!.. But actually, I am writing you because my blog is looking a bit of a mess, and I'm not sure who else to ask??? I'm getting some unsubscribed (somewhat offensive) articles in my "Reading List" on Blogger, AND Photobucket appears to be telling me they want $40.00/month for using MY PHOTOS on MY BLOG now. Has this happened to you at all, and is EVERYONE paying for Photobucket use now. They are saying I HAVE to upgrade, and their little logos are all over my blog. I don't want to take down my blog, but am wondering if I might have to? I'd appreciate anything you can tell me, or at least some direction to turn to, if you could help me. (Sorry, I couldn't see where to contact you privately.) ~tina

  6. I have no explanation why, but I am not at all interested in seeing the eclipse. Outer space doesn't appeal to me either, but the ocean does. Anything oceanic intrigues me, even land but never the sky. I simply cannot understand the hoopla.

    1. In my opinion, the sky can be an ocean of wonderment also!! I like 'em both and study often. Still.

  7. I'll see a partial eclipse with 88% of the sun obscured. It should be quite a sight, even if not a total! :-)

  8. Oh I've been wondering about how ,uch you would be able to see here. I read that if you dont have the special glasses you can use your cell phones camera in selfie mode and look at it over your shoulder. I was wondering if that would work or not

  9. I saw eclipse in 1979, when my dad was stationed in North Dakota. Now I will see it again in KY. I work in a primary school and all 400+ of us have safety glasses. What an event!

  11. I don't think we will see it here in Pa either. We are to have severe storms.

    1. It may or may not be visible here, this morning when I woke up it was cloudless, but the clouds have been building up and getting thicker. Never fails.
