NASA Jets Equipped With Telescopes Will Chase Solar Eclipse 2017

NASA Jets Equipped With Telescopes Will Chase Solar Eclipse 2017

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon's shadow passes over the Earth's surface, temporarily blocking the view of the sun from the Earth.

Bottom line, you want to be able to watch the eclipse without fear of damaging your eyesight.

A total solar eclipse can be viewed in the United States at the end of August, for the first time in almost 40 years.

During the August 21 eclipse, Speck and other researchers at the University of Missouri will use grants from NASA to study the sudden temperature shifts.

Tim Knauer, Director at the MacAdam Student Observatory at the University of Kentucky: "It cuts across from Washington, across Wyoming, through the Midwest, Southern Illinois, and then out into the Atlantic Ocean by SC; there are many millions of people within a half day's drive of the path of totality".

"We're having a small viewing party at Abbeville memorial library for the total eclipse". But there's still a chance to book a trip to a nearby city.

Falcons sign Devonta Freeman to 5-year extension
The 25-year-old running back most recently appeared in all 16 regular-season games for the Super Bowl-bound Falcons. According to Freeman's agent Kristin Campbell, this is not on his mind. "I want to thank (owner Arthyer) Mr".

"I drove from New Jersey where I was in grad school to see an eclipse in North Carolina, which was the only place you could see it", he says. "And then also more of a hard-core enthusiast can have their equipment setup in a different activity zone", said Megan McConachie of the Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau. Solar viewing glasses will be distributed to all who attend.

Be prepared for spotty cell phone coverage in a few locations.

"Here, it will be 99 percent totality, which is still pretty unbelievable, but if you are really interested in experiencing the full extent of the event, you really should try to get into an area in the path of totality".

The effect of this total solar eclipse will turn the day into the night which will cause a significant dip in the amount of solar energy being produced and feed into the electric grid. So, don't miss it - but do not forget to be safe! The Society's major telescope will feed into the stadium's big screen to show the moon passing in front of the sun from around 1:16 p.m.to 4:06 p.m.

There's about a 75-mile area around Carbondale where you'll get to see the full eclipse, and officials are estimating that up to 200,000 people will travel to the region to see it. It's no more risky than looking at the full moon. They say you may not realize how much damage is done until it is too late.

"This is an experience that people get to come and see this and experience it. And it doesn't matter whether they don't know about the science, it's something that's about natural phenomena in the universe and people can engage with it, without any special equipment or anything", concluded Speck.
