What we can learn from the 2017 solar eclipse

Well NASA has calculated that "the next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the continental United States will be on October 14, 2023 which will be visible from Northern California to Florida". When a total solar Eclipse is the Sun you can see the so-called crown. If you miss this eclipse, you may have to wait until the year 2045 to see another.

To help you plan your eclipse-viewing experience, PBA has compiled all the information you'll need, including videos, fun facts and articles from partner WABE. Eleven NASA and NOAA satellites, high-altitude balloons, hundreds of ground-based telescopes and even the International Space Station will all take advantage of this unique shadow-chase across the surface of the Earth.

But a partial eclipse is pretty cool, too, said Ken Munson, a member of the South Bay Astronomical Society. Planetarium director Seth Jarvis says there's a simple test to finding a safe pair.

Do not look directly toward the sun because it can damage your eyes. And they might even learn a few new things to draw on during the next total solar eclipse, which will occur on April 8, 2024, across portions of North and Central America.

If you haven't placed an order yet - or your glasses are arriving after the solar eclipse - don't panic yet. If no filters are available, it is best to use a pinhole camera to project the eclipse indirectly. To observe that you will have to travel out of state. The full moon blocks the sun creating the shadow on the Earth. However, as totality is ending, there's a flash of sunlight when the moon moves off the sun.

And, because we live in a world where some people really do still believe that the Earth is flat, NASA scientists also fielded questions on that front.

During totality, the only visible part of the sun is its corona, the normally unseen outer atmosphere that shimmers in the darkness like a fiery ring. Here on the Keweenaw Peninsula, we will have a 71 percent eclipse.

Millions of Americans are getting ready to view the next eclipse on August 21, but Dr. Russell Van Gelder from the University of Washington School of Medicine warns blindness is a risk if you dont have proper eye protection.

It is said that one of the longlasting legacies of the Apollo missions to the moon is the number of American scientists today who were inspired to be engineers and scientists. So for an eclipse to occur, the moon must land on a specific point where the moon's orbit intersects the earth's orbit. Read the original article.
