What solar eclipse information do I need before I host a viewing party?

  • First, you need to determine whether your location is actually in the path of moon shadow, or if it is in the umbra or penumbra zones. Each of these zones offer a different type of eclipse viewing, with the path of the shadow providing the most complete perspective on the solar eclipse.
  • In addition to finding the solar eclipse locations, you need to make sure that you are prepared with the proper equipment. Do you want to take photographs of the eclipse? You will need a special solar filter, a tripod and a more advanced understanding of photography. Are you interested in viewing the eclipse in real time? You need to invest in either plastic or paper eclipse-viewing glasses to protect your eyes from ultraviolet and infrared waves.

The list of needs goes on from there. Want to make sure that you are prepared for every upcoming eclipse for decades to come?
