Second chance to see a total solar eclipse in 2024

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

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and blocking all or part of the sun.

Clear your schedule for April 8, 2024.

The path of totality - the route of the moon's shadow where the moon completely covered the sun - made landfall in OR and ended in SC. More than 5,000 passengers on The Oasis of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, sailed into the Path of Totality to experience the eclipse while Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler sang an abbreviated version of her 1983 hit "Total Eclipse of the Heart".

According to a projection created by TimeAndDate.com, the full total eclipse in Batavia will last 223 seconds between 3:19 p.m.to 3:22 p.m. that Monday and a partial eclipse for almost two and a half hours. For eclipse watchers, plans to witness it have already begun.

Lisa Kaczmarczyk of DeKalb (left), her daughter Regina, 12, and their neighbor Dylan Callaghan, 15, wear solar eclipse glasses to observe the partial solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21. My wife checked the internet for closer places to stay the entire time I drove the 135 miles back to our hotel room. Had I involved my wife earlier, she would have had all this taken care of in 2012.

We took off our glasses and the moon was a dark circle and the sun a glowing, white halo.

The odd sensation as the light vanishes in the middle of the day elicits a wide range of responses from people, both young and old.

From where they stood looking at the sky in Inglewood, only the sun was visible to the naked eye.

"Amazing", "incredible" and "intense" were a few words used to describe the experience.

In Newport Beach, spectators saw a partial eclipse of about 60 percent.

"The Great American Eclipse" - they occur roughly once every 18 months, but this one was notable for crossing the country from OR to SC - was fun and exciting. Starting at 9 a.m., the library staff presented a live stream of NASA's online coverage on a large screen in the Friends of the Library Room.

Police said Monday that investigators exhuming and analyzing more bodies had since found evidence of scores of additional murders. His confession led the police to launch Kardio- a special forensic investigation to determine the cause of death of the patients.

At times, the room was at full capacity and a line formed outside of the door.

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

"It's a unique experience because it's so rare", said Joe DeBell, a Dansville Central School science teacher who led the workshop.

She wanted to hear NASA's expert commentary on the event and also see the images from different parts of the country.

But no. I will not think about Steve or any other politician. Some people I know in Texas made a pinhole camera so they could watch the eclipse through it, and set the grass on fire.

The Navajo people, indigenous to Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, believe the passing of the moon over the sun is "an intimate moment in which the sun is reborn and tribal members take time out for themselves; no talking, no eating or drinking, no lying down and no fussing".

The first thing you have to do when chasing down an eclipse is to find a safe way of viewing the sun. Those who had the special glasses shared them.

As many Americans learned on Monday, the difference between a near-total and total eclipse is fairly significant. By using a longer shutter speed, I was able to achieve a sharp eclipse while simultaneously capturing the motion blur of the clouds via the long exposure. "I've seen a lot of handsome things, but totality was the most lovely thing I've ever seen".

Basmaciyan added that everyone enjoyed the event, "as well as a sense of community".

I've always been fascinated by such events that happen in space, as well as chronobiology, a field within biology that examines and studies phenomena in living organisms and how solar, lunar, and other related rhythms affect our physiology.
