Thread: Solar Eclipse 2010

    Default Solar Eclipse 2010


    The moai are ready

    July 11, 2010

    Virtually all of the path of totality falls over water - the southern Pacific Ocean. It does pass within 15 miles of Tahiti, so cruise ship business will be great.

    In all the vast Pacific Ocean, the path makes one direct hit with tiny Rapa Nui (Easter Island), not much bigger than Staten Island. Totality on the island will last 4 min 45 sec.

    Imagine how cool and creepy it would be to experience it with those sentinels.

    uh oh - prepare for disappointment.

    You'll have to wait until 2024 for a total eclipse in NY State (full in Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester though).

    We get a dawn total eclipse in NYC in 2079.

    Though... there is an "annular" over Las Vegas in 2012 - not that long from now (in an Annular Eclipse, the moon doesn't completely cover sun so no totality)

    I think Omega means in the continental US.

    Head down to Nashville on Aug 21, 2017. Everyone should see a total solar eclipse once in their lives.

    ^True that.

    You can plan all you want but you better be flexible. You don't want to travel all the way there and find out it will likely rain. Best is if you choose somewhere with less of a chance of a washout. The best viewing may may well be the dry plains of Wyoming or Nebraska. If there are storms they are usually local and brief.

    The two paths overlap near Carbondale, Illinois, less than seven years apart.

    Don't forget Vegas too - annular is nothing to sneeze at. Monday, May 21st 2012 as the sun sets- book your rooms in Vegas (or better yet - Reno) now.
