Total solar eclipse tops NASA online viewing records

NASA just recorded the International Space Station flying in front of the solar eclipse

The deepest part of the shadow, or umbra, cast by the moon fell over a 70-mile-wide, 2,500-mile-long "path of totality" traversing Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC.

NASA said in one of its articles leading up to the big day that "in our lifetime, this is the best eclipse to see", and that scientists will be "drowning in data", now that technology to measure atmospheric changes and the like are much more advanced now than the last time a total eclipse took place. Until then, watch this video and re-live the great American eclipse of 2017. If the eclipse is less than total, the sky may darken only slightly and the sun should only be viewed through eclipse glasses, which still offer a rare view of the moon's placement in front of the sun.

Julianne Sweeney could not contain her excitement as sheer peered at Monday's solar eclipse through one of the telescopes outside the Integrated Science Center at SUNY Geneseo.

He said he has been an astronomer for 40 years, but has never seen a total eclipse, although he does attend a partial eclipse annually. But once you put on the glasses, you could see the moon covered about a quarter of the sun.

The U.S. space agency NASA streamed it live, beaming stunning pictures, including one of the sun looking like a "luminous diamond ring", which appears for an instant before and after totality. "There was such a huge amount of interest in this eclipse, you couldn't help but get into it". Some of the large planets have objects called moons that orbit around them. At least they said so.

"I'll cover for you", she said.

Another student, also of Tunnel Hill, Miranda Mathis, a senior, who didn't yet have her glasses, said she will watch the event at home, and is very excited about watching the eclipse.

On September 2nd, 2035, a large number of people in China, northern Japan and Korea will witness a total solar eclipse. "We will be able to detail and map the landscape of the moon during this upcoming eclipse".

It was tricky to do but I was able to take several photos of the eclipse with my iPhone.

The first thing you have to do when chasing down an eclipse is to find a safe way of viewing the sun.

The students were each provided with the special glasses, at their final station, necessary for viewing the eclipse in its coming and going stages.

The 2024 total eclipse will pass over northern Mexico before crossing San Antonio, Dallas, Little Rock, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Erie before reaching western NY.

Pam Jones told me, "I don't have any experience with shooting an eclipse but I read a ton of articles, got a solar filter for my camera etc". When it was in the highest totality phase, of course that's when all the clouds came.

The eclipse quickly approached totality and the sun shrank down to a sliver.

"It's kind of America's eclipse, right?"
