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

Eclipse

Eclipse

For a few minutes on August 21, the moon will orbit perfectly between the earth and the sun causing total darkness to fall over 14 states, while others outside the path of the total eclipse will see a partial solar eclipse. "The entire country will be able to see at least a partial eclipse, but Nashville is in the direct path for the total solar eclipse".

- Total Solar Eclipse (free) offers live telescope views from NASA, narration of the live event in English and Spanish - even accompaniment by the Kronos Quartet.

NASA officials are planning to conduct research projects across the path of totality - where the sun will be completely covered - that include atmospheric balloons, aircraft, satellites, the International Space Station and the city of Carbondale, where the eclipse will reach its greatest point of duration.

The August 21 Solar Eclipse should be an unbelievable experience for all who see it.

Here in South-Central Pennsylvania, and areas outside the path, we are treated to a partial eclipse. The moon comes between the sun and Earth and casts the darkest part of its shadow, the umbra, on Earth.

You can use solar eclipse paper over the lens, but experts say that even at full-zoom, your photos will be small, KGW reported.

While the Sun is the most commanding element of an eclipse, do not forget to look around you. But even a small piece of the sun is sending out unsafe ultraviolet light. "The last total eclipse was 1979 (in Hawaii), so I don't know if historical data can be modeled".

Be sure you know the capabilities of your camera before Eclipse Day. Having seen 33 total eclipses in my life, I implore anyone who can to take advantage of this experience. You can drop of your donations at the Family Service Society at 827 Joe Clifton Drive between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m.to 3:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday. It's not safe to use regular sunglasses to look at the eclipse, according to NASA information.

Q: That's not too far away, will the sun not be totally obscured here?

Scientists donated telescopes to trained volunteers to capture 90 minutes of the solar eclipse.

Combined with measurements of the ionosphere during the eclipse, they will have information on both the solar input and corresponding ionosphere response, enabling them to study the mechanisms underlying ionospheric changes better than ever before.

It's known in the trade as solar blindness or solar retinopathy - not total blindness, rather more like age-related macular degeneration, where you have trouble reading or recognizing faces, or lose those abilities altogether.

There are alternative methods to indirectly view the partially eclipsed sun. Only use a telescope or binoculars if they are fitted with reliable solar filters created to fit directly on the instruments and the operator knows how to use them. "For 20 years it's been one of my bucket list items; if something doesn't work, I have seven more years to the next one, right?" And, some other third-party sellers on the site are giving vague estimates as to when the glasses will arrive or be back in stock, meaning they could arrive before or after the eclipse. Catch the image of the eclipse on another piece of white cardstock held behind the pinhole.
