Download the Solar Eclipse Timer App to calculate the contact times at your viewing location. I'm not making money from the app or anything, I just think it's an amazing project and one of the best scientific uses of smart phones I've ever seen.

Ambiance and musicy things by: Gordon McGladdery did the outro music the video.
The thought is it my efforts making videos will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for my kids college education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
