These Fantastic Maps Show the #SolarEclipse Totality Viewing Time Through Each State
From Oregon through to Missouri and eventually out to sea beyond the shores of South Carolina, where you are within the upcoming solar eclipse’s umbra will determine the length of time the eclipse will occur in your location; for example the house I grew up in St. Louis will experience a 32 second total eclipse but just a few miles south will experience a full one-minute eclipse, and many more miles south will experience a complete 2 minute 41 second total eclipse.
As the eclipse traverses the continental United States each locality will also experience the phenomenon at different local times. Great American Eclipse have done a fantastic job of creating maps – and even video animations – that detail each state’s eclipse traverse and timestamps:
Here are quick links to each of the state’s effected by this month’s Total Eclipse and their respective maps:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
