2015 is on its way! What do you guys look forward to this year? I'm really looking forward to see high resolution images of Pluto and Charon in July smile

I'm of course looking forward to the Pluto flyby, but before that: 20 March 2015 has been on my mind since the 90's: The only total eclipse on Norwegian soil (excluding Antarctica) in my lifetime. 79 days to go!

This made me realize my solar eclipse countdown is less than 1000 days. Yaay!

20 march is going to be a pretty good eclipse here, though sadly not a total one. 84% will still be interesting to see, though. The next annular eclipse here won't be until 2093, and the next total one not until 2135.




I occasionally stream at http://www.twitch.tv/magistermystax. Sometimes SE, sometimes other games.

Last partial eclipse I saw was the 1 August 2008 eclipse, it's pretty cool to see too! 11th June 2048 will have an annular eclipse visible from my location, although I'm not sure how much one can see with the unaided eye.

If you use eclipse glasses then you'll see the ring of fire, otherwise with unaided eyes it's still so bright that it just looks like the normal sun (and you definitely shouldn't stare at it). Shadows will appear strange, and those cast through small holes, like through tree foliage, will be rings. And of course the sky will appear darker than usual, but nothing like during totality.

Those most covered I have ever seen the sun was .857 magnitude (79.9% obscuration), during the 1994 May 10 annular eclipse that swept across the US and north of my location. I was in elementary school at the time, and I remember looking out the window (it's about 1:30pm, maximum eclipse) and noticing the sky was quite dark, looking more like late evening. The teachers gave us eclipse glasses and took us outside to view, and it was spectacular seeing such a thin crescent sun in the sky.

Thinking back on it, I'm pleased that the teachers were competent enough to feel comfortable taking a bunch of kids out to look at the sun. There is much irrational fear of viewing these events remaining in the world today.

What an experience smile Looks like the sun will be covered almost exactly as much from my location on 20th March, so hopefully it will be noticable smile
