Baseline Studies for Cosmic Ray Solar Eclipse Experiment

 

A presentation from the 2018 Winter Meeting: San Diego, CA

Abstract

A cosmic ray experiment was proposed to measure muon flux changes during a total solar eclipse. Before the eclipse, baseline studies of empty sky, lunar transit, and solar transit needed to be collected. In accumulating these baseline data, various methods of collection were implemented. Specific results of these investigations and reasons for each in preparation for the solar eclipse will be explored.
