Eclipse 2017: One Nation Under The Sun

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

It's been 38 years since a solar eclipse occurred in the US and 99 years since a total solar eclipse has swept across the USA from coast to coast. Meanwhile, there was only one place where you could witness both a transit of the ISS across the partially eclipsed sun and the total solar eclipse later in the morning; it was at the intersection of this transit path with the moon's shadow path in Wyoming. In most areas, though, people saw "only" a partial eclipse.

Apparently, planning a trip where the ultimate goal is to intersect with the Great American Eclipse along its very narrow "path of totality" requires a bit more planning than getting into the vehicle with a valid credit card and a can of Pringles to munch on along the way. A video submitted to WHSV by Patrick Flanagan, showing a timelapse of the eclipse over Silver Lake, can also be watched above. For example, as a child, I was told that the Solar and Lunar eclipses are a result of Rahu and Ketu gobbling up the sun and the moon.

The Aug. 21 eclipse across America generated interest and excitement far and wide.

The hotel rooms have emptied out and the traffic is back to normal, but officials say they hope the educational effects of this week's eclipse will linger.

"It was a lot of fun seeing everyone get behind something like that", said Sierra Silverwood '18, who watched the solar event from just outside the Joe Rosenfield Center.

Nozomi exhausted out Sindhu by prolonging the rallies as the Hyderabadi tried to close the points quickly and made errors. The two players have met seven times so far in global badminton with Saina having an upper hand in six of those battles.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and blocking all or part of the sun. Often this line of totality is in locations uninhabited and very hard to reach. As it is a time of extreme distress for the god sun and the moon, we should suspend all aspects of daily business and only pray to God for their freedom and victory over their enemies.

Another called the eclipse "amazing". "When people said global, or from everywhere, everyone rolled their eyes at us", said Wilcox. Had I involved my wife earlier, she would have had all this taken care of in 2012.

"It's a once in a life time experience", Burritt said. A partial eclipse is when our view of the sun is only partially blocked. "We will be able to detail and map the landscape of the moon during this upcoming eclipse". A partial eclipse with at least half of the sun's face covered was visible from all of North America, northern Mexico, the Caribbean and even the north part of South America.

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 eclipse quickly approached totality and the sun shrank down to a sliver. I very seldom think of things in time to plan for them, and in this case it didn't seem to me that the eclipse would be a big deal. Totality is expected to come through southern Ontario and Quebec.
