Solar Eclipse

augustsolareclipse_0On August 21st, there will be a total solar eclipse for parts of the United States. NASA reports:

Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. (https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/)
