August is an exciting month because of the solar eclipse happening on the 21st. The next time that we will see a total solar eclipse here in the United States won’t be until 2024! While many of us won’t be able to travel to the areas of totality, here in New Jersey we are still expected to see a 73% blocking of the sun.
We should all know the importance of protecting our eyes when viewing the eclipse (if not, check out the NASA.gov article here), but do you know some of the best practices for taking eclipse video with your smartphone? If you are planning to capture something amazing for your Instagram or Facebook feed, here are some best practices from Wired Magazine on getting the best results.
