The solar eclipse is coming… are you feeling ready?
I don’t know… I don’t have the safety glasses.
Me neither… Everywhere ran out.
What do you think it will be like in Seattle? Dusk? No big deal? Like a cloudy day?
Well here’s the facts: The solar eclipse as viewed from Seattle will occur between 9:09-11:39 am with a peak of 91.7% at 10:21 am.
Yeah, but I hear the difference between 92% partial eclipse and 100% total eclipse is practically exponential. Like, they’ll be able to see stars in the Oregon desert. Like, they’ll be able to have spiritual awakenings and we won’t.
Ahh, do you think it’s too late to fly down there?
We can wing it.
Er, what are we going to do about our eyes?
I read we can look with our back towards the sun, through a colander onto a white paper spread on the ground.
Cool, why didn’t I think of that? Okay, let’s go!
