Eclipse of 10-3-1986
( 10-3-1986 )
Time: 2:00 p, to 4:30 pm DST
A. Response (Circuit # 105 on x-y recorder)
(1) While ‘shadow’ of moon-sun alignment shows up, the low-level of the eclipse makes this dip less pronounced than the previous eclipse monitored.
(2) The response was more ‘vivid’ on the C-mos detector with a meter output, probably since a longer time constant dampened much of te smaller GW variations.
(3) The GW maximum again appeared about 8 or 9 minutes [ later ? -- apparently missing a word here – ed.] than the predicted optical shadow maximum.
(4) For some reason, more GW structure followed the eclipse than before!
