The Great American Eclipse
On August 21st, 2017, many people in the United States had their first chance in 38 years to experience a total solar eclipse. The path of totality extended all the way from Oregon to South Carolina.
Glenn Sullivan in Plain Dealing, Louisiana
Glenn Sullivan from Plain Dealing High School in northern Louisiana, captured data in about 80 percent totality. He monitored the data from inside his classroom using LabQuest 2 and LabQuest Viewer. There were clouds early and late during the data collection run. He also captured data using a Davis Instruments weather station. The graph here shows irradiance and the air temperature on eclipse day. The peak of the eclipse would have been about 1:20 pm at that location.
