All pricing in USD
This free document prepared by Dr. Daniel Barth outlines an eclipse observation activity focusing on safety and proper methods. It encourages using solar projection, approved solar filters, or solar glasses to observe the solar eclipse safely.
The challenge is to observe and document the annular solar eclipse on October 14th, 2023. It provides approximate timings for various phases of the eclipse and emphasizes the importance of documenting observations and experiences for credit. Four activities which can be used at home or for school credit (All activities meet AR State and Next Generation Science Standards NGSS), including taking a solar selfie, capturing an eclipse photo, making eclipse records, and using multiple observation methods. The activity provides opportunities to earn laboratory science credit (check with your teacher!) and encourages collaborative observation. Additionally, video resources are offered to aid in understanding and preparing for the eclipse.
