Share Your Eclipse Experience!

If you've been living in isolation over the last several month, let me update you: the U.S. will experience a total solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21.

All of the U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse, but there is a wide, 70-mile swath from the northwest to the southeast that will view a glorious full solar eclipse. Now is the time to start getting ready for this extraordinary event. We haven't seen a total eclipse cross the U.S. since 1918!

"The lunar shadow enters the United States near Lincoln City, Oregon, at 9:05 a.m. PDT. Totality begins in the United States in Lincoln City, Oregon, at 10:16 a.m. PDT. The total eclipse will end in Charleston, South Carolina, at 2:48 p.m. EDT. The lunar shadow leaves the United States at 4:09 p.m. EDT. A partial eclipse will be visible throughout the United States," according to NASA Eclipse 2017.

There are a number of places you can research in order to prepare. The above NASA Eclipse 2017 is a great start with detailed maps, guides and a safety primer; PC Mag has a good "Procrastinators Guide to the Eclipse;" and (my favorite) Space.com's "Total Solar Eclipse 2017: When, Where and How to See It (Safely)."

We want to hear about your solar eclipse stories!

Please check the map (see above), see what kind of eclipse you'll be experiencing and tell us your story. If you are preparing to photograph (safely) the eclipse, send us your photos or photo collection. We'll be happy to publish it for you both at Renderosity and the Renderosity Magazine website.
