eclipse. okay, well, solar eclipses will eventually evolve, so that we will no longer have total solar eclipses ever. >> what? >> we will have what are called ring eclipses where we have a ring of sunlight around the moon. if you hang around long enough , mike, you have been around long enough already but if you hang around longer you might be seeing some of those. >> what a smart alex. >> you might. >> i have another question. >> yes. >> the sunnies 90 million miles away, it is gigantic. the moon is just smaller then the earth. so, why would this little bit i thing called the moon cast such a big shadow. >> that is a really great question, mike. it is really cool ratio of size and distance between the sun and the moon, and the earth. it goes like this: the moon
7:51 am
is 1400 and distance from the moon is 1400 from the distance to the earth and sun. what that does is set up this cool one to one distance to size ratio so that the moon looks like it is exactly the same size as the sun in the sky. there are slight variations to that so sometimes the moon is a little bit closer in its orbit and we have those ring eclipses and occasionally moon is farther away from the earth and so, the moon is a lot, can ab larger or appear larger then sun in the sky but we don't note that is during an eclipse so much. >> kind of the same thing as your head right now because your head is so close tour lens. >> so my head right now, my head right now would be bigger then the sun, yes. >> so many people are talking about how they will see this. there is a frenzy trying to get their hands on the glasses you gave us ours. we appreciate that. >> yes. >> can they look at it in a reflection, water reflection
7:52 am
or what are other ways people can do it and still be safe. >> lots of other cool ways to observe this event safely. one of them is yes, you can set up a bucket of water or tub of water and look at a reflection of the event in the water, that is one way to do it. other thing, an indirect method where you use something that has tiny holes in it. something like a california works well. pull this out. just stand with your back to the sun, hold it in the sun and then the shadow of the ground underneath you'll see has all these circles. well, during the eclipse they will look like crescent suns and because it has so many holes you'll have lots of crescent suns. >> yes. >> isn't that cool. >> i like that one. >> and failing that other thing you can do let me see if i can make this happen because i'm balancing on my lap. just a second.
7:53 am
other thing take your fingers like this cross together like this and little hold that show up between your fingers act as pin hole camera. hold this up and make a shadow and when you see light coming through your fingers you can see little crestens of the eclipse. >> we are looking on the ground. >> or on your shirt. >> you are looking on the ground. just hold that hand up and then shadow of your hands on the ground where you're looking you'll see these gaps where light coming through and adjust spacing of your fingers , little crescent eclipses. >> derek, listen to this, i will use a california but i was told not too because that might strain my eyes. >> you know, mike you need to get another job, man. >> no laugh, no sympathy laugh >> and mike, i thought you were from kansas.
7:54 am
you are supposed to be out here with my was scheduled to be in st. joseph, missouri with you. >> it is a sore subject. >> very sore subject. >> yes. >> so, i'll bring you some eclipse light back. >> thank you. >> bring us a hat or a pin. >> bring me some kind of earth rock. you know why, you know why moon rocks taste better than earth rocks derek? >> let me guess mike because they are a little meet user. >> nice. >> where is my rim shot, thank you very much. >> there it is. >> through go. >> a little late. >> thanks. >> we will talk again in a little bit. we will check back in. i want to see what people setups are. i know it is skype but do they have tents. >> where do you see on the run down we will see him again. >> according to, yeah. >> in the 9:00 o'clock.

taking another look at wills eye hospital. look at this line. people have been waiting here since 6:00 a.m. because wills eye happies giving out some of the solar eclipse glasses for free. so i cannot even count how many people are in this line. i'm told it was supposed to happen at 8:30 but now we are
8:31 am
hearing it is pushed back, so it could be 9:00. we will keep checking in. we don't know how many? some people asking can they still come down. it is a gamble. look at this. i have heard you can only get one per person but move it around the family. it is hard to find these things. i don't know where else we can get them at this point. great they are doing it because you cannot look directly at the sun, is that right, scott. >> absolutely and those glasses have to be certified glasses as well. live look outside our studios here in olde city and you can see mostly sunny skies, high sirus cloud overhead and we will have high cloud and fair weather puffy cumulus cloud later today. 72 degrees. humidity at 84 percent. the eclipse will begin at 1:21 in the afternoon, max eclipse for us, partial eclipse for philadelphia area at 80 percent coverage. high temperature 87 degrees with that mixture of sun and
8:32 am
cloud. as we look at ultimate doppler we're dry right new but as we move toward later this afternoon especially off to the west here's 1:00 o'clock still looking good as that begins, by 2:30, 2:44 mass eclipse looking good but off to the west look at these isolated downpours expect with those pop up showers and storms to the west of the region. overnight isolated storm 91, hot tomorrow, wednesday scattered showers and then look at cooler temperatures upper 70's to lower 80's heading in the weekend. >> good morning. if you are driving, this afternoon during the time period of the solar eclipse remember do not stop on the highways, no stopping on the schuylkill, i-95. pull off, safe area, parking lot put the car in park and enjoy it. keep your head lights on if you are driving throughout the whole duration and do not wear those eclipse glasses when you
8:33 am
are driving. they are only used off to the side looking up at the sun and be careful of the pedestrians that are walking and looking up into the sky. we don't want any accidents out there. live look at the schuylkill, sun glare, so sun has made it's a experience and ready to go for eclipse later today. alex, back over to you. >> but with those glasses, trust me, you cannot see anything when you put these on not a good idea to do this and drive. let's in the do that today. thanks, bob. >> we cannot forget about animals. some people saying animals are acting kind of strange. what should do you with your animals, will they act weird? will they do something? well, lauren's at the zoo right now and she will tell us what we should do with our pets and what the zoo will be doing today. >> here's the big thing, not a lot of people know what will happen. it is a test run. we came to the zoo we are here with iain. good morning, thanks for joining us. >> good morning, thanks for
8:34 am
having me. >> today will be a field day because you will just sit and watch. >> a lot of uncertainty. we're not sure what the animals will do but depending on their natural behavior we do expect certain animals will react to the different event. >> people wandberg bird, is it raptor ridge the new section of the zoo. >> thinks part of the recent project green light exhibit at the zoo. we feature bald eagles one of the largest north american bird of pray. these guys are hunter that use daylight. they hunt for fish. they scavenge during the daylight hours. so species like this during the eclipse we are not sure what they will do but we imagine that because their natural behavior indicates they would go to roost at night and have quiet time during the dark periods of the eclipse. >> we will walk over and see an owl, right a barn owl. >> yes. >> they are nocturnal. they are usually sleeping right now. >> owls are most active at
8:35 am
dawn and dusk, so like that is when they spend most active hours at dawn and dusk. these guys will likely become more active during the eclipse and flying around and searching for food unlike eagles it is getting dark and time to go to sleep for the night. >> who is this down at the end where you said don't get too close. >> we have our fired native bird of pray down here, thinks a red tail hawk named shan dough a. it is a species we see here in philadelphia one of the more common hawk species and like eagles they are a sight predator. we imagine that these guys like the eagles may go in for the day. observe these around the city being less active. with most bird that are active during the day we will see most of the singing, forge ago this we night see in an average day become less throughout the eclipse. >> iain, this is cool research
8:36 am

8:37 am
closed and little crack of light. you can still see a lot. think of it like that when you have the curtains opened up you can still see a lot. >> in fact that is what i will do i will go to the sophie tell, rent a room and close the curtains. >> then you won't see anything >> you are so over this. >> the opposite effect is happening, i'm getting so excited and mike is going the opposite way. >> i'm ready. let's get this going. >> rooftop. >> we have our friend ant kwan >> he says he is willing. >> you should cook too. he hasn't responded to that. >> he has a barbecue pit out in the roof of his building. >> i will bring a salad. >> okay. >> maybe i'll bring moon pie, listen to what i will do here. there is a blank space on social media, do you see what i did. >> nice. >> taylor swift wipes out her
