How to make the most of a new solar eclipse by driving through the suburbs
The Sun’s last full lunar eclipse occurred on December 21, 2023.
Its duration was about 2.2 minutes.
That is about a quarter of the duration of an average eclipse.
But that does not mean the eclipse has to be viewed in totality.
That would have to be the case if you had access to a large enough telescope, such as one that allows you to watch a partial eclipse in person.
If you want to be able to see all the eclipse’s phases and all its details, you need a big telescope.
But this eclipse will be viewed with just a tiny telescope, a tiny one, or none at all.
Here’s how you can see the total solar eclipse in a small backyard in your back yard.
To see an eclipse with just your eyes, set up your telescope so that you can adjust the magnification.
It should be about one stop for the whole length of the eclipse, and a stop or two for the last quarter of an inch or so.
Set the telescope at about a 20mm aperture, about the diameter of a dime.
The more aperture you have, the better you can make out the eclipse.
Set your viewing position so that it will be in the middle of your backyard, so that if you are at the back of the backyard and the sun rises over your back, the telescope will be about 20cm away from you.
You can also use the telescope’s manual setting to make sure that you have enough light to make out your eclipse.
Now, you can set your telescope to a specific spot in your backyard.
If the eclipse is not visible at your home, just try to keep your viewing spot a little bit above your backyard’s horizon, in the dark.
If it is, it is too far to the horizon.
If, however, it isn’t, you are in the right spot.
If your backyard is about 25m away from your backyard star, you will need to set the telescope to that spot.
Set up your camera for video, and then watch it.
You will probably have to adjust your video settings to suit the eclipse as it unfolds, so it can be viewed at a much larger size.
If possible, you should also take photos.
You should have a small smartphone camera that will work with your smartphone camera app.
If not, you might want to consider getting one.
You may also want to use a tripod or a mount for the camera so that your camera can be held steady and steady.
When the eclipse begins, the moon will be much bigger than the sun.
If there are any clouds over the horizon, you may need to adjust the viewing position a little so that the sun doesn’t get too bright.
If all that is happening, you have a very nice view of the sun and moon.
You could use a magnifying glass or a small mirror to make that view even better.
This will give you a much better view of your surroundings, as the moon’s disk will be bigger and brighter than the Earth’s disk.
The moon will also move in front of you a little.
It will be easier to focus on this point if the eclipse passes over your head.
That way, you won’t have to worry about the eclipse completely obscuring your view.
If this is the case, you don’t have a lot of time to get a good view of all of the phases of the moon.
If that is the problem for you, then you may want to try a special eclipse viewing experience.
In a special viewing experience, you would be able a little more than an hour before the eclipse to watch it, as it is being viewed from an observing position about 25 metres away from the observer.
The experience would start with the sun going from being about 80 per cent eclipsed to 100 per cent in front.
Then, the eclipse will appear to disappear from view.
The only way to see the full moon as it passes by is to stand in front the telescope, and have your phone focus on the full-moon portion of the lunar eclipse.
This view is usually very sharp, and you will have a great view of what is going on.
If everything goes well, you could see the entire moon as the eclipse approached.
You would also have a good chance of seeing all of its phases, if you were able to stand close enough to the moon to make it appear.
You might also want a little practice to see how well you can hold your telescope steady and hold your eye steady on the entire eclipse, as well as how well your eyes can see all of those phases of a partial lunar eclipse and also what will happen if you miss the full lunar phase.
But the experience should last about an hour and a half.
If nothing happens, that is fine.
You just want to make your backyard look like it is the best place to watch the eclipse in the shortest amount of time possible.
