I got my glasses a few days ago, so I'm good. Monday is getting close and the 90+% that I will see here is scheduled for 10:14 A.M.
Lucky! Using a tool "Vox" put out, I'll be seeing around 66% at it's peak. Still pretty good, but nowhere as good as up in WashingtonI got my glasses a few days ago, so I'm good. Monday is getting close and the 90+% that I will see here is scheduled for 10:14 A.M.
Didn't you post that same video in another Thread:thinking:
Yeah you basically got it.. IIRC.Might rain. You never know. When they were trying to use a total solar eclipse to prove/disprove Einstein's theory of relativity they had to go back and do it another time because the weather blocked out the many groups first attempt. The idea was to see if the stars around the sun had moved position because of the gravity of the sun on their light reaching earth. It was later proved to be true this way, but not by the many groups doing it on the first try. Even then, there was only one or maybe two that got a good enough clear sky to photograph the event.
Edit: This is totally from memory, so if there was some part I got wrong, it is because of that. This did happen though.
Another one I find fascinating is "Einstein's Cross".Yeah you basically got it.. IIRC.
I saw a documentary on that light warping
experiment done by a scientist that went
to some far off country to observe the effect.
Was so long ago I can't remember all the details
but he did prove Einstein's theory as fact.
Just found this informative link....
More gravitational lensing only in that case it's the gravity of an entire galaxy that creates the much larger gravitational lensing and creates four images of the quasar (a active supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy) that is behind the lensing galaxy...Another one I find fascinating is "Einstein's Cross".
This is where a quasar is G.lensed around a galaxy that sits directly in front of it yielding four images of the quasar around the original image of the quasar.
Check it out, it's amazing.
