I suggest that Eve Fanfest for the year 2015 be scheduled around the Total Solar Eclipse that is going to be occuring around March 20, 2015, and will be visible off the coast of Iceland.

I suggest CCP move Fanfest so that we fans would be able to view this awe inspiring solar event, then come back and party with the guys from CCP.

Maybe even charter a cruise-ship and hold fanfest there!

Any thoughts?

For me Fanfests have always been EVE, devs, players and lots of beer! Who got time for anything else during those days? Cool

A solar eclipse means it'll be dark during a portion of the day.

This will obviously mean that people get a brief respite from light-sensitive hangover headaches.

So instead of several hundred drunken EVE players...


You have several hundred drunken EVE players, in the dark.

We need to survive 2012 yet :tinfoil:

But as has been proven time and again, given enough beer mankind can do anything it sets its collective drunken mind to so who knows. Drunken blurs > apocalypses.

Seriously though if EVE is still going in 5 years it could be a good idea.

I like this idea. CCP will be able to say with out a glimmer of irony, "We intend to keep you in the dark." Which is what they should be saying eveyr year...

So we party, go see an amazing solar event while partying, party on the way back to iceland. Party once we get to Iceland, watch some awesome Eve stuff while partying, then wait until next year?

like as well... unfortunately it barely misses iceland:

Having seen once in my life a total sun eclipse I can tell you it is an unforgettable nature event. Unfortunately I fear the effects will be much less on the sea than on the land (animals get silent, flowers close, it suddenly gets cold, etc...)

I like the idea but at what time does it happen? It can get dark pretty damn early here in winter time (and yeah march is still pretty much winter) so it might not be that impressive.

During winter in iceland its usually nice to see daylight appear for an hour or two during the day Very Happy

If something was going to happen, I doubt they would make it publicly known due to it causing mass panic. I'm not saying I believe in the 2012 hype, but just cause nasa says nothing will happen, doesn't make it true or not. Common sense...learn to use it!

Would be funny for the daylight to appear during the night for a change though, no? Embarassed

First off:
In March, specifically around the 20-21st of march, the length of day is the SAME all over the world, aka March equinox. So no the day isn't particularly shorter or longer anywhere on Earth at that point in the year.

Ok now that's out of the way onwards to the 2nd point:)

Solar eclipses will always happen during daytime, it's sort of implied in the name, but see this image for an explanation.

Last point: You'll not see the total eclipse from Reykjavík. You'll have to come over to us in the Faroes for that (or go to Svalbard, see link), but a partial one is still interesting.

True but toward the poles the angle the sun rises to at its zenith (and sets at its nadir) will be shallower creating longer periods of 'weak light' at dusk and dawn.

Anstronomy rant over...

...now all we need is someone to come along and correct the spellings in this post and we can have an English lesson too. Very Happy

This one has obviously never been anywhere near the arctic circle has he?

1. Length of the day is 24hrs 365 days of the year, except leap years.

2. Elevation of the sun means the further towards the poles you go, the less you see the sun. While it might be light out for 12-13 hours the sun may below the horizon. As for seeing it, I doubt that the science types would fudge it that much.

What was I thinking, trapped on a boat with a thousand EVE playing drunks and sadists?

I'll wave from a different cruise ship!
