Bob Moler’s Ephemeris

August 21, 2017 Eclipse Videos

This video displays totality in real time with audio of the craziness that ensued. At two times during totality I shifted the camera right to the west-northwest to see the brightly colored horizon, then to the left to bright clouds there.


This video is a 10X time-lapse of the 20 minutes centered on totality It shows the Moon’s shadow as it passes overhead from right to left. Note especially the large clouds on the lower left.


A note on the time in the lower right of the screen. It was left on Eastern Daylight Time and is still off by 24 seconds. Total error is 00:58:36 too high for central time.
