Mr. Eclipse
GRADE LEVEL: 7-12, Advanced

The Mr. Eclipse site bills itself as the "ultimate resource for eclipse photography."

The site uses a black background with graphics that relate to the theme of the pages. This graphic-intensive site may take a while to load, but it is worth the wait.

The main page is organized into a list of links by topic and also includes a navigation menu at the top of the page. To navigate between the internal pages, users must return to the main page via a link at the bottom of each internal page.

Mr. Eclipse not only features spectacular photographs of solar and lunar eclipses but also photos of other "wonders of the night sky," such as Comet Hale Bopp and the Milky Way. Visitors to the site can read informational articles on solar and lunar eclipses for beginners, view a listing of upcoming eclipses, and find tips for observing eclipses safely. Included in Potpourri is a guide for videotaping an eclipse, eclipse quotations, eclipse stamps, information on eclipse filters, and more.
