Total Solar Eclipse (2017)

  • Published on Aug 22, 2017
  • The total solar eclipse from Madras, Oregon on August 21, 2017. As the moon passed in front of the sun turning day to night and revealing the sun's corona, apparently all I could think to say was 'Oh my goodness!'

    Everyone says not to photograph your first solar eclipse and I think they might be right. I was focused on getting the exposure right for Bailey's beads and the diamond ring, plus making sure to get the corona and solar flares. This was a bit stressful but I'm delighted with the results.
    This video originally included more info but since I'm uploading from Madras where the internet is sluggish, I cut out three minutes so the upload would happen before I had to leave for my flight.
    Special thanks also to Dr. Teagan Wall for sharing this experience with me and Raquel Nuno for inspiring me to come to Oregon.

    Have you ever wondered why the Moon moves steadily in front of the Sun, then stops at the moment of totality for about a minute? Does the Earth stop turning? I may be wrong but shouldn't it move constantly with a fluid motion all the time? So how do you explain the stoppage?

    “The gods are angry, let’s sacrifice someone!”. No doubt this would have been terrifying to those civilisations that didn’t understand what was going on.

    GENESIS 1:1.
    Human beings are helpless, and no match
    against "Jehovah God" & his Son "Jesus Christ"
    In the bible book of proverbs, where it says;
    So together, they both CREATED TO ENTIRE UNIVERSE.......
    "Big bang theory"... As scientists want you to think....
    These things were created, like Adam was CREATED from the DUST OF THE GROUND, And he came to be a living soul...

    Hey dude you seem smart explain how the sun and moon move west and cast a shadow thatr moved east , even if that goes against the laws of physics . Explain how the moon got back in front of sun 4 more times since the liars that told us this woukd happen didn't bother , hey show us how you can make your shadow walk backwards while you walk forward , you should be able to if the moon can make its shadow move in the opposite direction ,. Lol its the dumbing down of the population sad to see . By the wag you know what happened 99 years ago ? It was last time an eclipse was seen in totality from somewhere in the USA this was first time ever 5 totalitys in one day reason each totality lasted different amount of time was because there where 5 different size objects eclipsing the sun , those same 5 objects in 5 years will be on the other side of our sun heading awa y from the sun moving in the opposite direction , in 2017 the great American deception they vwhere headed towards the sun , 5 years they will, have orbited the sun and will be moving away , yku seem to be a smart guy use your head you got caught up in it without being logical . Tge only place tgat sees totality when moon eclipses the sun ,is where ever the shadiw is at tge monent tge moon blocks sun completely ,a little over 2 minutes after its over and moon keeps moving away from sun and will not move in front of it again . You cant change tge laws of physics especially if not one person explained how could happen , this is a thing they do all the time now they say things without anything to back it up , and anyway since i was a kid they would always show them to us at school ,and always said only pl ace that will see totality is where reporter talking is and if your watching it live on tv every one else in shadows path will see partial , do you homework its sad to see even smart people got fooled

      The moon's eclipse shadow moves east for two reasons: the moon's orbit around earth is west-to-east (or counter-clockwise if viewing the earth-moon system from above the north pole), and the moon's orbital speed is about 2000 mph while earth's rotational speed is about 1000 mph. As a result, the moon's eclipse shadow moves across earth at about 1000 mph from west to east.

  • mohamed Moussoud
    mohamed Moussoud 27 days ago

    If the legitimate reason for the occurrence of the eclipse and the eclipse is to scare God to the slaves, to leave their sins, sin and sins, and the successive occurrence of those verses in this particular time because of the temptations of life, open regionalism and pornography that most societies are living in, people have drifted into the mainstream of civilization The pseudo, they preferred themselves and they kept others, so ALLAH sent the blessings and the almighty those verses intimidating and warning to his servants so as not to solve the problems of those who preceded them, they must return to their lord and return to their religion so that they do not fall into the wrath of God and anger, he said:{ ظهر الفساد في البر والبحر بما كسبت أيدي الناس ليذيقهم بعض الذي عملوا لعلهم يرجعون } ( الروم41 ) .It is the duty of the Muslim, if he sees these great verses and great signs, to reciprocate to obey his lord and Mawla, and to freak out to pray for fear of his God, and leave this tragic from amusement, playgrounds and temptations.

    What is it called when the sky in a NON total ecliptical area turns into a grayish blue hue... colors change .. as in everything gets sharper in contrast.
    Ive tried looking it up, but have not found much. I'm definitely Not refering to the "Shadow bands"
    Maybe a future video idea??
    Im not sure if it occures also in areas with totality, as many people around me in Los Angeles saw the same thing too during this event you filmed.
