Total Eclipse Temperature Graph

Post by AstroBees »

The telescope mount was in the shade until around 11am local time so that is why the graph is rather smooth from 9am till around 11am. Then it becomes a bit more variable but the eclipse is still very obvious. We had clear skies the entire time.

That's an 8 degree drop in temperature for a full eclipse compared to the partial of Rainer's 2-3 degrees, very interesting :hamster: :hamster: :hamster:

Alexandra, it's more like 14.8° drop from C1 to the low point which trails a bit behind C3, the end of totality.

Apologies Astrobees, I converted to Celsius to be comparable with Rainer's partial eclipse temperatures

30.5 degrees to 22.2 degrees

I have similar observations (From arkansas).

Here are 2 ambient temperature readings taken during the eclipse.

The sensors are placed in the shade in trees.

Image



Here is for the first sensor (671), red curve.
The highest value recorded before the eclipse is 28.2°C (791 04-08-2024 13:40:08 28.2)
The coldest value during the eclipse is 21.2°C ( 1341 04-08-2024 15:11:48 21.2)
Or a decrease of 7.0°C

Image



Here is for the second sensor (512), red curve.
The highest value recorded before the eclipse is 28.0°C ( 880 04-08-2024 13:54:25 28.0)
The coldest value during the eclipse is 20.5°C ( 1356 04-08-2024 15:13:45 20.5)
Or a decrease of 7.5°C

Image




In both cases the value rises to 29°C or more after totality, but I stopped the recordings too early.
