Hi everyone. Its Sunday evening and tomorrow is the solar eclipse that is visible from much of the US. Here in New Hampshire we are only going to see the eclipse at 60%, but there are places in the US that will have a total solar eclipse.
The dark line shows the path of the eclipse and where the best viewing will be, and as you can see New Hampshire is way up on the right corner, far off from the total eclipse. I am going to build one of those box pinhole cameras to view as much of the eclipse as we are going to have since I don't have any eclipse glasses and of course, you should never look right at the eclipse without eye protection.
Since tomorrow is a big day in astronomy, I have another page from night sky journal to show you.
To make my page I used a bit of paint, a sheet of old style computer paper (actually 12x12 printed paper not real vintage computer card), some stamps, a die cut, some stickers, some scrap paper and a little bit of sparkly paper tape.
I am planning on spending my last 3 days of vacation before I blast back into school having lots of fun me time. If I can spend Monday in my happy place after I get home from my morning walk, life will be good. Going to miss my morning walks for sure once I get back to the classroom. I know I can walk after work but somehow that morning walk really gets me ready for the day.
And I also have some photos from my Finger lakes trip to show you.
A little more glass perhaps from the Corning Glass Museum. Today I have photos of various (in no specific order) historic and cultural pieces.
Let's start with vintage scientific glass equipment.
A section from a giant glass flask periodic table.
A gorgeous stained glass screen.
And a close up.
And glass through the ages:
This is a Roman goblet and horn shaped cup.
Phoenician and Egyptian pieces
And then some pieces that are relatively more modern than the ancient civilizations.
That's it for me today. Hope you have a wonderful start to your new week.
