    Solar Eclipse Sunday May 20th

    There will be a solar eclipse occurring this Sunday evening.

    Solar Eclipse this Weekend - NASA Science

    It will be partial for the upper midwest with Iowa seeing ~70-75% eclipse beginning at ~7:30p and effectively ending at sunset. Those in SE Iowa will see the sun set before the maximum eclipse occurs.

    A full solar eclipse will occur from parts North Texas back to North California.





    There is a chance for clouds/rain on Sunday (in Iowa/Minnesota) but at this point it looks like it'll be out of here by the evening. It'll be a close call though.

    Re: Solar Eclipse Sunday May 20th

    Is this the kind where I make a hole in one piece of cardboard and let the sunlight go through to another piece of cardboard and I "see" the eclipse that way?

    I remember doing that when I was about 10 and I thought it was the stupidest ******* thing I'd ever allowed myself to be talked into doing.

    Yes, that's the standard way of protecting your eyes with a nearly full solar eclipse.

    It's OK, stare directly at the sun for as long as you like.

    Is there a way to look at it without doing this?


    Are your eyes going to be immediately ****ed if you look at it?

    I believe your entire head will go up in flames. At least that's what they told us in elementary school.

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
