Headed to Charleston tomorrow to share the event on the beach with a NASA expert! So excited! She’s bringing all the gear to analyze the eclipse. It would have been cool here in Hilton Head, but way cooler in Charleston.
BFH – how about one of your open feeds on Monday? Will be glad to provide NASA DATA!
MJA: My black Labrador Beauregard watches birds fly over. He hates hawks, turkey vultures, and especially CROWS. Barks ferociously and runs after them as they fly. He would love to catch a crow like your departed pup, but I’ve never seen him remotely interested in the sun. 😎
No need to get a pair of protective eclipse glasses for your dog or cat, experts say they don’t normally look at the sun.
In today’s NASA briefing about Monday’s solar eclipse, co-chair of the National Solar Eclipse Task Force Angela Speck remarked, “It’s no different than any other day. On a normal day your pets don’t try to look at the sun and therefore don’t damage their eyes, so on this day they’re not going to do it either.”
DH and I are already at destination. We will have totality here at our SIL & daughter’s home here in MO. Daughter dearest and I plan to sit on the deck with our margaritas watching the eclipse while the guys photograph it.
Here, totality will be only 38 seconds. We all chose not to fight traffic in Columbia for another 2 minutes of darkness
All kinds of traffic delay warnings for tomorrow posted along the interstate today.
