NASA is collaborating with student teams across the United States to send balloons into the sky in one of the most unique and extensive eclipse observation campaigns ever attempted, which will also help expand the understanding about life beyond Earth. It has been a whopping 99 years since the last total eclipse crossed the continental USA from coast to coast.
A narrow band of the lower 48 from OR to SC will have the opportunity to see a total eclipse.
But why does this happen, what will we see on the Big Island and is it really a big deal? That one will be during April which is a much cloudier month than August.
North Korea year away from developing nuclear missiles that can reach US
Even short of war, China now has reason to view North Korea as a liability. "And our poorly-painted little ship is also a path of peace".
The difference between a partial and a total solar eclipse is, well, night and day. At 1:02 p.m. Lincoln will be in a total eclipse and the game will be paused for about 1.5 minutes as it passes through. The celebration at the state capitol will include concerts, NASA's traveling "Journey to Tomorrow" exhibit, presentations from NASA scientists, and a live broadcast of the eclipse by NASA TV. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.
Oregonians are already hyper-aware of the eclipse, since it will make first landfall in OR, and about a 60-mile band including Lincoln City, Salem, Madras and Baker City, will be in the "path of totality". It occurs when the Earth, sun, and moon align.
"The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters.Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, every very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun", the astronomical society said. Also, just as the Sun's radiation can damage unprotected eyes, it can also damage unprotected equipment.
Jaguar XJR575 is 567bhp and 186mph of comfortable saloon cruising
Those increases shave 0.2 seconds off the old XJR's 4.4-second 0-60 miles per hour run, and are good for a 186-mph top speed. The updated XJR575 houses the same 5.0-litre, supercharged V8 petrol engine but pack more punch than its predecessor.
"Just follow your instincts to look away from the sun, and you'll be okay", says Lattis. This year's total eclipse will pass through 14 states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and SC.
The total solar eclipse may have other lasting effects, suggested James Bullock, professor and chair of the physics and astronomy department at the University of California at Irvine.
10 from 6-7:30 p.m., Curtis Memorial Library and Cornerstones of Science will host an informational program on the upcoming eclipse.

Authorities would not say whether the trailer was locked when they arrived, but they said it had no working air conditioning. Temperatures in San Antonio had soared to a high of 100 degrees on Saturday, according to the Weather Channel.
