2016 Partial Solar Eclipse on Maui!

Get ready for the March 8, 2016 Partial Solar Eclipse seen from Maui!
A MUST SEE!   All can come!  Invite as many friends as possible!

Eclipse begins:   4:35 pm     (Sun Altitude – 26 deg) 

Max eclipse:       5:37 pm     (Sun Altitude – 12 deg)

Eclipse ends:      6:31 pm     (Sun Altitude – 0 deg)

Sunset:              6:33 pm

Choose from 3 Locations to View Eclipse FREE through a Telescope
1. House of the Sun (Haleakala) – 4pm – Sunset – arrive early because Solar Telescope guys scheduled wide load transports that may delay viewers 🙁
2. Kalama Park Kihei – 2pm – 7pm – event hosted by National Solar Observatory and Maui Science Center
3. Kaanapali, Hyatt Regency – 4pm – Sunset – Eddie Mahoney to provide telescope viewing near pool deck
Chasing the Eclipse: I hope to set up on Haleakala, but if the weather is not good up there that day, I will chase the eclipse to Kihei…..if Kihei weather is not good, I’ll jam over to Kaanapali…..if Kaanapali has bad weather…..we’re out of luck!
