The 2015 UK Solar Eclipse – Stay Smart, Stay Away From Smart!

As the UK prepares for the first solar eclipse since 1999, we at Big Orange Software urge you, rather controversially, to stay away from all things tech… Billed as the most spectacular partial eclipse for decades, it’s inevitable that social media engagement is going to boom during the two-hour event, but let’s face it nothing is going to be as spectacular as the main event itself.

‘That’ concert regret comes to mind here; when you’re at your first ever gig and get overwhelmed by the sheer excitement of it and feel the need to record EVERY SINGLE song on your device. You then leave the venue with your ears buzzing to then be addressed with sheer disappointment when you find that the recording resembles a somewhat crunching noise, with thousands of screams in the backdrop.

What we’re trying to say here is, don’t miss the moment by trying to capture it.

We forecast that Facebook, Twitter & Instagram are more than likely going to be the big hitters this Friday, flooded with images of ‘Eclipse Selfies’, Jaffa Cake ‘Total Eclipse’ jokes and hazy images of the sky, but these may come at a price…

Photographing the sun can cause damage to cameras if the right steps aren’t taken. The lens in your camera can get damaged by the sun, it’s advised that photographers use a solar filter should you want to record.

So whether you’re at work, at home or even at your local GP practise waiting room. Sit back, put away the device and simply enjoy… …and then Tweet like mad!
