Total Eclipse

At OwyheeStar


Preparing for the Total Eclipse-4

OwyheeStar’s Stackhouse approved glasses!

We will experience the Total Eclipse for 1 minute and 7.4 seconds according to NASA. About twenty miles north, totality will last for 2 minutes and 10 seconds. That is where folks are expected to gather in mass–near Weiser, Idaho and a bit north. They have events planned in conjunction, etc. I have not heard if they have a crowd or not.

The Weims

The Weims will be spending the time mostly in their crate, but some will go outside briefly. For one thing, there is a huge building that blocks the event from the Weims who run in groups. So, in truth, not much will be different for them unless they see the total darkness. We cannot say what this event casts about along with it’s going and coming. Everyone has heard about the lunar effect–emergency professionals see an increase in crazy behaviors.

The Blue is the Winner!

Lenses for the Total Eclipse

Stackhouse tested our eclipse glasses. He wasn’t all that thrilled with them, and I think he prefers to siesta during the event. We have two styles–the blue ones and the black with yellow sides. The blue was the winner!

Be Safe

We have heard about the risks of viewing the eclipse without wearing approved lens or going old school with a homemade viewing box–or more aptly the pinhole projector. The biggest threat to our Weimaraner is the human element–as with anything that is called an event. We are sincerely hoping people keep their pets safe–probably inside and secure. It would be a sad state of affairs to find the local shelters overrun with pets. They have just come through the 4th of July aftermath; I hope we can spare them undo overload. I also sincerely hope no pet is traumatized. We are responsible for keeping them safe.
