The solar eclipse of August 21st will come in from the Pacific in Oregon, cross the United States and exit at South Caroline to the Atlantic. This map shows the eclipse path and is color-coded to show the likely cloud cover.

Quote:
Given the large fraction of Americans carrying camera-equipped smartphones, this American Eclipse may turn out to be the most photographed event in the history of the world.

Solar eclipses are fascinating and can make fabulous pictures against an interesting background. This is a wonderful composite of the total eclipse of March 2015 in the Faroe Islands. It was entered in the Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition.

Where is the best location to see the eclipse? EarthSky pick of 10 places along the path of totality. There's also some general advice and suggestions about preparing for the day.

In June the US Postal Service is releasing a stamp that changes when you touch it. The Solar Eclipse Forever stamp commemorating the August 21 eclipse, transforms into an image of the Moon from the heat of a finger.

You can read the whole story of the eclipse stamp here.

If you're interested in the 2017 total solar eclipse, take advantage of this offer now – or at least on or before Tuesday May 23. Brian Ventrudo and Manish Panjwani have produced an e-book guide called "How to See the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse: A Practical Guide for the First-Time Eclipse Watcher". It will sell on Amazon for $3.99, but you can download it free for the next few days.

Brian writes
Quote:
This concise guide helps casual skywatchers and even 'non-astronomers' understand when and where to see the eclipse, how to choose and use inexpensive solar eclipse glasses, solar filters, maps, and other basic tools, and it offers a few tips on how to snap a photograph of this memorable event.

You can download it onto a Kindle device – or a computer, tablet or smartphone with the Kindle Reader app. 

Here's the link to the 2017 eclipse guide on Amazon.

NOTE: I'm passing on to Bellaonline readers what I think is a good deal. I don't benefit from the sales of this book.
