There’s a partial solar eclipse coming up this week!
On this week’s Writer’s Voice, Kathleen tells about how it happens,
and how to see it.
This is a map of the 10-23-14 Partial Solar Eclipse path. The lines with times (PDT) are for mid-eclipse, at maximum, the thinnest crescent sun visible at any location. Find your location, add or subtract hours to convert Pacific Daylight Time to your time zone (-1 for ADT, +1 for MDT, etc), then extrapolate the mid-eclipse time at your location, and subtract about 1 hour 15 minutes to get the eclipse beginning time, and add 1 hour 15 minutes to find your location’s eclipse ending time. (The deeper the eclipse the longer it will last, 2 1/2 hours for South Central Alaska at a little more than 60% of the Sun’s diameter covered by the Moon.)
