14D12N TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY TOUR 2017 (USA) - NEW
What is a Total Solar Eclipse?
A total solar eclipse occurs when the Sun is completely obscured by the Moon when it's passing between the Sun and Earth, and it can only happen at new moon. Unlike a Lunar Eclipse (blood moon), Total Solar Eclipse is rare because totality only exists along a very narrow path on Earth and when this natural phenomenon happens, the entire scene can be as dark as night for a few minutes before it becomes bright again. Phenomena like Bailey's Beads, Diamond Ring, Sun's Chromosphere and Corona, and Shadow Bands can all be observed during a Total Solar Eclipse.
When and where is the next Total Solar Eclipse, and how often do they occur?
The Total Solar Eclipse will take place on 21 August 2017 and many people will be able to witness this extraordinary natural phenomenon from many cities in USA. The longest duration of the eclipse can also be observed on land and what makes this eclipse even more rare is that we'll also be able to catch the Perseid meteor shower just 8 days before the event!
The Total Solar Eclipse in 2017 will happen on a favorable August climatology, and after several months of careful planning and extensive research, we have identified just one site in USA that offers up to 88.2% chance of viewing the best of the eclipse due to high chance of seeing clear sky and relatively long duration of totality of up to 2m 40s.
Why join us?
We have been monitoring the weather conditions around the path of the Total Solar Eclipse for a few years and the site was carefully selected after we compared and analysed the data collected over the past few years to ensure a very high chance of viewing the rare eclipse at its best.
Our state-of-the-art cloud prediction tool provides real-time cloud cover analysis every 30 minutes and notify us in advance on impending thunderstorms so we can make better decisions, and select the best shooting spot within the location in case of bad weather.
