Solar Eclipse of the sun August 21st

Solar Eclipse of the sun August 21st

The sky will darken from OR to SC, and what we see will be unforgettable. The schedule is known with precision, but how do we know all this and when did we first know it?

Free eclipse viewing glasses, while supplies last, a solar system ambassador from the Jet Propulsion Lab and free STEM activities will be part of the event. Espenak spent his career predicting the paths of future eclipses - making detailed maps out to the year 3000 - and witnessing total solar eclipses whenever he can.

Adler Planetarium Director of Public Observing Michelle Nichols discusses the upcoming total solar eclipse at McHenry County College Tuesday, Aug. 8.

A solar eclipse will be visible from Kansas City, Kansas, on August 21, and several special events are planned for it. "And yes, we do know with that much precision".

They're not as stylish as Ray Bans but they will allow you to look at the historic event without eye damage as long as you keep them on. The diamond ring has disappeared and the moon has completely covered the sun. And so the computations were done on that basis. That the moon is an irregular body, and especially along the edge, along the outer rim during an eclipse, there are going to be mountains and valleys, and so depending on where the sun disappears from where you are, maybe it disappears behind a mountain, in which case the eclipse starts early for you. "You certainly do not want to look at it here in Evansville and you want to wear the solar eclipse glasses the entire eclipse". "I think the primates are what we'll be interested in watching because they are cognitively advanced".

But every so often, there's a narrow window when the Earth, sun and moon align.

Scientists and amateur astronomers have been using NASA data to plan their eclipse trips for years.

Stretching from roughly 50 to 400 miles above Earth's surface, the tenuous ionosphere is an electrified layer of the atmosphere that reacts to changes from both Earth below and space above.

No other country but the USA will be privy to the path of totality. And so that Saros, that notion of that periodicity, that long-range periodicity, has been known since ancient times.

And where better to fill up on eclipse T-shirts and safety glasses - and eclipse burgers - than the Eclipse Kitchen in Makanda, Illinois.

"They'll certainly react to the dark and temperature and react to environment, but to see whether they react to it in a meaningful way is hard to tell", said Steve Ross, director at Lincoln Park Zoo's Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes. "It's remarkable that they had the wherewithal to figure that out". A stamp inside the glasses will read "ISO". But guess what? That can be counterfeited too.

"So we'll have an opportunity to showcase a bit of Tennessee State University, our Aristocrat band, one of the best bands in the country, you'll hear them having some fun". These are no longer available as they were (unbeknownst to me) incredibly unsafe. I guess they didn't realize what a windfall this was going to be a year ago.
