English | ISBN: 3319276301 | 2016 | 412 pages | PDF | 25 MB
In this book Astronomy Magazine editor Michael Bakich presents all the information youll need to be ready for the total solar eclipse that will cross the United States on August 21, 2017. In this one resource youll find out where the eclipse will occur, how to observe it safely, what youll experience during the eclipse, the best equipment to choose, how to photograph the event, detailed weather forecasts for locations where the Moons shadow will fall, and much more.
Written in easy-to-understand language (and with a glossary for those few terms you may not be familiar with), this is the must-have reference for this unique occurrence. Its not a stretch to say that this eclipse will prove to be the most viewed sky event in history. Thats why even now, more than a year before the eclipse, astronomy clubs, government agencies, cities • even whole states • are preparing for the unprecedented onslaught of visitors whose only desire is to experience darkness at midday. Bakich informs observers what anyone will need to observe, enjoy, and understand this event.
