Space station crew to get 3 shots at solar eclipse Aug 21

We found 30 solar eclipse apps in the Apple iTunes app store and more than 70 in the Google Play store.

In Davis, people will be able to listen to an introductory discussion on eclipses and how to safely view them, then engage in eclipse-related activities, including an eclipse-themed story time and a variety of hands-on STEAM activities.

CATE, the Continental American Telescope Eclipse, is an experiment more than two years in the making. The glasses were branded "Solar Eclipse Glasses 2017", and appear to be no longer available for purchase on the site. But according to Business Insider, some glasses ordered from Amazon.com will not arrive on time for the eclipse.

The total solar eclipse will only be visible on a narrow track stretching from OR to SC.

At the college event, from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m., on Monday, Aug. 21, there will be large viewing screens with live streaming from NASA, multiple telescopes with safety filters set up for public viewing (or bring your own) and NASA solar glasses.

Corona: During the total eclipse, the corona of the sun will be visible. Meaning the sun is fully obscured by the moon. The "Great American Eclipse", as it's colloquially called, will cross from OR to SC in the span of about 90 minutes. As the earth rotates, the moon's shadow traces a path across a portion of the earth. Originating in the wide open North Pacific and ending in the Atlantic well short of Africa, the eclipse path will cover 8,600 miles from end to end.

Stocks in Europe and Asia Slip as North Korea Tensions Rise
European stock markets fell further in opening trade on Friday on intensifying fears over North Korea , dealers said. Investors are leaving the index to look to traditional safe-havens such as the Swiss franc, the dollar, or gold.

The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special eclipse glasses or filters that are ISO compliant #12312-2 and CE certified. It will end in Charleston, South Carolina at 2:48 p.m.

If you want to take photos of the eclipse, you will first need to learn about its path, the best viewing spots and the times where it will be the most complete.

In addition, because the moon orbits in an ellipse and not a circle, the moon has to be its closest distance from Earth in order for a total solar eclipse to occur.

Pierce said the moon will start encroaching on the sun around noon, and the eclipse will finish by about 3 p.m.

In Michigan, 75 to 90 percent of the eclipse will be visible, meaning the moon will block 75 to 90 percent of the sun. But, if you can get there, the Music City will have several fun events to celebrate. "Use the protection with the glasses, if you don't have access to those, use an indirect method to experience it".

This month's eclipse may be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a rare astronomical event right in your backyard.
