2017 American Solar Eclipse – Preparing and testing for live stream

Posted on Updated on

It’s settled now. We’ve booked ourselves for Oregon and will be camping the weekend prior the American Solar Eclipse. We’ll be meeting up my old astronomy friends from Tycho Brahe Astronomy Society in Lund, Sweden as well!

Long time I’ve been wishing to share live stream with a fairly good quality on several of the events I’ve been attending, sharing my experiences to friends who are either unable to attend, or due to time differences are unable to watch. So on the 21st of August, I’m going to stream live here and on my Facebook profile. It will be set to public so anyone who wishes can watch.

I’ll do my best to answer on comments while the live streaming is going on. If I miss any question please keep repeating it until my eyes catch it.

The stuff I’ve got now recently are, cell phone adapter for live streaming purposes that will be attached to one of my telescopes, Solar Finder and lots of souvenir paper glasses with sun filter aimed for solar eclipses.

Prophecies are fun!

So there’s this thing going around that California will suffer great disaster. All that according to one of Nostradamus prophecies. Let us have a closer look to what he wrote:

The trembling so hard in the month of May,
Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury in Taurus:
Venus also, Cancer, Mars, in Virgo,
Hail will fall larger than an egg.

Upon closer look let us sort the planets by constellations:

  • Constellation Capricorn:
    – Planet Saturn (Exists instead by the constellation of Libra)
  • Constellation Taurus:
    – Planet Jupiter (Exists instead by the constellation of Cancer)
    – Planet Mercury (The only one that matches the prophecy)
    – Planet Venus (Exists instead by the constellation of Gemini)
  • Constellation Virgo:
    – Planet Mars (Exists instead by the constellation of Taurus)

So nothing matches except of the planet Mercury. The 29th of May 2015 looks pretty safe to me, so enjoy your weekend everyone! No need to barricade in your shelters or buy any food supplies.
