Smoke Gets in Your Eclipse

Posted on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Dave!Yesterday was fairly uneventful. Woke up hideously early to make my flight out of Boston... changed planes in Seattle... and... eventually made my way home to Redneckistan. Easy!

Except...

Thanks to wildfires in British Columbia and the Okanogan, things here have become quite dire. Smoke is so thick that the entire county has been declared a hazard. THIS was my view of the valley after pulling over on the way home...

My Smokey Home!

Pretty nasty.

When the total eclipse happens later this month, I'm supposed to be able to see the moon obscuring 92.1% of the sun from my house. I bought viewing glasses and a filter for my camera and everything...

But, if this smoke keeps up, I won't be able to see much at all.

It'll be a real bummer if that happens.

  1. Back in 2002 there was a partial solar eclipse in Sydney. But I just had a little point and shoot digital camera at the time, and no filters. Ironically, it was smoke from bushfires that let me get photos of it, as they obscured the sun enough to see the disc of the sun without blowing out the exposure.

    do residents wear masks? that seems like it isn’t good for lungs…
