  • As Darkness Descends During Eclipse, Funny Things Can Happen

Are you ready for the Great American Total Solar Eclipse this Monday?

On the flip side, if the moon were larger in apparent size than the sun, solar eclipses would be dark indeed. The most recent solar eclipse was on February 26, 1979, but it only crossed above five states in the northwest.

We are lucky. The only reason we see total eclipses is that our moon coincidentally has the right combination of size and distance from the Earth to be just about the same apparent size in the sky as the sun. So users are able to see what the eclipse would look like if you were standing on the sun, or looking down on the North Pole. In the center of that 70-mile wide path, the total eclipse will last from 2 minutes to 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

"In Maryland, it'll get up to 83 or 84 percent covered... what you'll see if you have our safe solar eclipse glasses is the sun being sort of eaten by the moon".

Of course, if you are on the path of totality, you will lose almost 100 percent of your normal daylight illumination when totality happens. "We will be going to Sts".

The nearest place to Chicago to view the eclipse is Carbondale although hotels along the path have been booked for months.

Kretzer noted that they were working with a team from SIUE that was providing training for the teachers so that they, in turn, can prepare their students for the day of the eclipse. The event will also feature a photo booth, music, crafts and educational activities for children.

Equity Research Analyst's Stock Ratings: Frontline Ltd. (FRO), Oceaneering International, Inc. (OII)

A number of astronomers use eclipses to study the sun's corona, an extremely hot gas that can be thought of as the sun's outer atmosphere.

Madigan says only eclipse glasses that carry a specific safety standard are safe to use to watch the eclipse.

Selfie mode is a better option, but don't expect a lot in terms of quality because those cameras are not created to take photos of the sun.

The entire eclipse (before and after the totality) will last more than four hours, but if you take too close of a look, you could damage your eyes.

The solar eclipse, which will be up to 90 percent visible in our area, is quickly approaching.

"We want the kids to be in school and learn and be able to experience this opportunity", says Julie Heatwole, a counselor at Lawrence's Sunflower Elementary School. There's also an old-school, indirect way of viewing. "I am leaving it up to the respective classroom teachers to determine what they might do", MELHS Principal Dr. Jay Krause noted.

Are you planning to view Monday's eclipse? The MoJo food truck will be on site, and visitors may play giant lawn games. Guests may bring their own lawn chairs if they so choose.
