Angry WHAT IN THE WORLD IS HAPPENING?! WHY IS YOUR ASTRONOMY-NERD STUFF A GLOBAL ANNOUNCEMENT, URANUS?!


 Because not many people know that TOMORROW, THURSDAY OCTOBER 23, 2014 the Earth will play host to part of the Moon's Shadow as it crosses in front of us! THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S A PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE, MOONIES. ((North America!))

AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.

IT'S TIME TO WELCOME OUR DEAD-MOON-CIRCUS OVERLORDS.
.... Just kidding! It's only a partial eclipse. They can't escape until a Total Eclipse over Tokyo Japan. We're still good.  

 A Solar Eclipse? A solar eclipse!    This is so exciting! I'm going to pull friends and family outside to watch it! Yaaay! I've got some super-cute new sunglasses and ---

:bunnynarroweye Stop. Right. There. You beautiful dreamers, have you forgotten that you will be looking at the sun to witness a solar eclipse of any sort? Do you remember what happens when you look directly at the sun?

Your eyes FRY is what happens when you look directly at the sun! Ask several dead astronomers. They'll tell you. 



 But Uranus.... I don't have time to run to a welder's supply store and pick up #13 or #14 rectangular arc-welders glass, and my sunglasses don't come equipped with specialized solar filters. Does that mean I have to miss out on all the fun?

:bunnykonataeye Fear not, oh soon-to-be-observer-of-a-wonderful-ecliptic-event, Uranus has your answer~  For while we cannot look directly at the sun during this partial eclipse, we can look at it's "shadow".

 The hell? The sun doesn't have a shadow, it makes shadows.    and she calls herself an astrophysicist.


:bunnypokerface Ye of such little faith! I mean instead to watch the wonderful event as a projection of the sun's light! Here's what you do:

Super Simple Solar Eclipse Viewer:
 
It's that simple! 


 That is simple! I'mma go make one right now!


 Good! But before you do, you definitely need to figure out when you'll be able to see this event! 

Times and Areas:

Quote :

Skywatchers will be able to see the event everywhere in North America except for northern New England and Canada's Maritime provinces, as long as the weather is clear.


For major West Coast cities, the eclipse will begin in the afternoon -- 1:35 p.m. local time in Seattle, 1:52 p.m. in San Francisco and 2:08 p.m. in Los Angeles -- and last about two and a half hours.
It reaches Phoenix by 2:21 p.m. local time, Denver at 3:18 p.m., Chicago at 4:36 p.m. and Dallas at 4:48 p.m.
Farther east, the eclipse begins between 5:45 and 6 p.m. local time in Boston, New York, Washington D.C. and Atlanta and ends at sunset.


  Have fun everyone! 


Can't watch it in person?
Then watch others watching it live! The Slooh Community Observatory will be hosting the event live at 5:00 pm Eastern!
