Solar Eclipse of the sun August 21st

Solar Eclipse of the sun August 21st

So on August 10 in 1999, there was a total eclipse of the sun. In any one location, a total solar eclipse occurs, on average, every 375 years. Illinois State Police anticipate many people will hit the roads to see the eclipse in its totality.

For people in many places, the total solar eclipse could be a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Sarah Levesque of North Smithfield and her fellow atmospheric science majors are planning to drive south in search of the best spot to witness the eclipse on August 21. It will start in Texas and go in a northeast direction, through OH and up into Canada.

In 1878, the combined population of the states in the path of totality was 2.1 million. But I will not be among them, as a 90% eclipse from my own yard is plenty good enough for me. The total event will be completed by 2:24 p.m., lasting a total of two hours and 47 minutes. Maximum coverage will happen at 1 p.m. No matter what recommended technique you use, do not stare continuously at the sun.

The sky will darken, the temperature will drop a few degrees, birds will stop singing and start to roost, chickens stir and crickets will start to chirp.

It adds China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten USA soil and the US retaliates, "China will stay neutral".

The sudden, albeit brief, transformation from day into night has elicited unusual behavior in animals in the past.

"The eclipse turns off the ionosphere's source of high-energy radiation", said Bob Marshall, a space scientist at University of Colorado Boulder in the US. The moon goes around the Earth, the Earth goes around the sun, we know those periods very precisely.

"But we only get these total ones where they're lined up just right about every 18 months". Not only must there be a new moon, but the sun, moon and Earth must all be in a straight line. But its residents will have a hard time enjoying it if it remains cloudy - the NCEI projects a 57 percent chance of clear skies.

The totality - meaning complete darkness - only reaches some cities because the geometry of the Earth and moon and how the moon's shadow moves at a constant rate. That central shadow creating that thin path is known as the path of totality.

That schedule has led some in the astronomy community to dub today's kids "Generation Eclipse". The sun's crown - the normally invisible outer atmosphere known as the corona - will shine forth like a halo. They will analyze the solar wind, which is particles moving out from the sun. The only safe way to view the partial eclipse is with these glasses, or by using the indirect pinhole method. "Awe-inspiring sights encourage empathy and generosity and group cohesion. and total eclipses always do that". Before and after totality, eye protection is necessary for anyone in the narrow path of totality.

Always supervise children using solar filters.

Most of you know Western New York is not in the path for totality in this eclipse. During that entire time you should NOT look directly at the sun without proper eye protection. Staring at the sun with unprotected eyes is always risky, except during the few minutes of totality. "That'll be an opportunity for us to take video, and take still pictures and kind of show you from the human perspective what that's going to look like". Mining the data from NASA, here are all the total solar eclipses touching the USA over the next 100 years. But even a small piece of the sun is sending out risky ultraviolet light. "Those are going to be some great moments to capture to show the emotion of the whole thing". These should not be used in conjunction with any magnifying instruments such as telescopes or binoculars, since those will intensify the sunlight and can cause the goggles to break from the intense heat. Many organizations will be providing these cardboard-framed glasses free of charge. A stamp inside the glasses will read "ISO".

"Related projection methods - One viewing technique is to project an image of the sun onto a white surface with a projecting telescope". You're paying us to take these pictures, and they go to you.

Don't miss this eclipse. "The city can only speculate as to the number of visitors that will travel to the city of Charleston to view this solar event".
