    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.
