Title: Experienced Eclipse Chasers. Your input please.
Post by: Prana on August 02, 2017, 08:54:51 AM
I know there are many experienced eclipse chasers here.  This month's will be my, and undoubtedly others, first.

How about posting what to watch for, and how?  Visual stuff.  I recall listening to a recording made by someone experienced, and they were calling out the various events as each approached.

I'd like to have such a list, as the group I'm going with are not only eclipse newbies, but total astronomy noobs, far as I can tell.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Mark

I'm no expert, but I thought this was a good description of what will happen
