Solar eclipse offers millions a chance at citizen science

What does a partial solar eclipse mean for Delmarva

Similarly, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer - the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye (s), causing serious injury.

Southern Illinois will have a first-rate view of the total solar eclipse on August 21, according to NASA.

"There's really no way to describe to someone, even in a photograph, the impact a total solar eclipse has on the viewer", Arnold said. In the spirit of southern hospitality, Hiiawassee, GA is hosting a Total Solar Eclipse Tailgating Party featuring a presentation by the Atlanta Astronomy Club, live music, and vendors for a fun, family event.

"The hair on the back of your neck is going to stand up, and you are going to feel different things as the eclipse reaches totality".

Harrity, who was driving the cruiser, was shaken by a noise when he arrived, the BCA said earlier this week. He speculated that the investigation will probably conclude that inexperience played a role.

The total solar eclipse next month will be the first one across North America since 1918. The partial eclipse will then continue until about 3 p.m.

Fisher will be experiencing the sights and sounds of the eclipse from the small town of Madras in central Oregon. Millions of lucky observers from coast to coast will have the chance to watch the Moon scoot in front of the Sun on the afternoon of August 21, 2017, briefly plunging cities like Salem, Oregon, Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and Columbia, South Carolina, into night-like darkness during the day.

It is the first total eclipse visible in the US since February 26, 1979, Science Museum Oklahoma Planetarium Director Tom Arnold said.

For those who want to view the eclipse from their own backyard or school, Maurer also is hosting two shows at the planetarium on how to safely do that.

On Friday, Corker said he would be "more than glad" to consider adding North Korea to the legislation if the House chose to do so. The American people deserve the truth about Russia's personal, political and financial grip on President Trump.

During the eclipse, scientists will also study Earth's outer atmosphere, the ionosphere, a region of the atmosphere containing particles that are charged by solar radiation. This phase is called totality, and it lasts about 2 minutes. But people looking to soak up an eclipse one billion years from now will be out of luck. The last coast-to-coast eclipse in US was in 1918. It will start in the northwest United States, and end in the southeast United States.

An eclipse is a rare and striking phenomenon you won't want to miss, but you must carefully follow safety procedures.

The Aug. 21 event is the first total solar eclipse over the United States since 1979. This is what most people will experience - the partial eclipse.

Another US eclipse is set to pass over the American East Coast in 2024.
