The Great Eclipse at Disneyland

August 19, 2017 Paul Groves

This Monday (August 21, 2017) will be “The Great Eclipse” and will be a total eclipse if you are 600 miles north of us. Here in Los Angeles, we will get about maximum 63% coverage at 10:21 a.m.
This also happens to be the first day that our Southern California Annual Passports to Disneyland are not blocked out, so we are off to Disneyland for the morning. I plan to look for good shadows at around 10:21 a.m. to see the eclipse.
We purchased some “eclipse glasses” on, but we received a message from Amazon that the glasses were not actually certified safe, so we are not going to use them. The shadows are good enough. I’ll attach a picture or two on Monday.
There was a very clever Disney Cast Member who had taken a map, punched a bunch of holes in it, and was showing people entering the park the eclipse. I glanced a couple of times through my solar glasses, but I mostly looked at the shadows on the ground.
