A Guide to Viewing and Photographing the Eclipse with Dr. Roger Bacon
Roger Bacon, a retired chemistry professor and avid photographer will present information to help you prepare for the eclipse. The upcoming eclipse is a once in a lifetime event. People will be coming here from several states, and we are so lucky that we just have to walk out the door and look up. It is not really that simple. We must protect our eyes and also avoid too much sun exposure. Approved PROTECTIVE EYEGLASSES are essential. They will be available FREE at the end of the program. Sunscreen, a long sleeved shirt, and a brimmed hat are also recommended. Pick your viewing location a few days ahead of the eclipse. You want full sun at 2:37 in the afternoon. Look at the shadows and not the sun, or use your approve SOLAR GLASSES. The types of eclipses will be explained and a few hints for photographing the eclipse will be given. Several helpful web sites will be provided in a handout.
