Next month's eclipse visible in WNY

22 July 2017

On Aug. 21, millions of people in the US will see day turn to night as a total solar eclipse passes over North America. The moon will cover part of the sun, which will resemble a much brighter crescent moon.

Government aircraft will be dispatched to follow the eclipse and take infrared measurements to determine the solar corona's magnetism and thermal structure.

The total eclipse is set to start at about 11:40 a.m. August 21 and end just after 2:30 p.m.

NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN even during the eclipse, without approved protection! They also will see an eclipse simulation in UT's planetarium and receive a free pair of solar glasses to prepare for the big event next month.

You don't have to be in the path of totality (where the sun is fully obscured) to participate in this experiment; if you'll be anywhere in North America during the eclipse, NASA still wants to hear from you.

For the first time since 1918, the dark shadow of the moon will sweep coast-to-coast across the United States, putting 14 states in the path of totality and providing a spectacular view of a partial eclipse across all 50 states. "Anyone who plans on viewing the eclipse should use eclipse glasses, which are readily available".

While Colorado will only see a partial eclipse, portions of Wyoming will see the full thing.

Moscow threatens retaliation if Trump doesn't return compounds
Zakharova described Obama's moves as a "provocation" intended at derailing Trump's attempts to improve bilateral relations. She also criticized the United States for not issuing visas to diplomats who are supposed to replaced the expelled staff.

We can observe the total eclipse if we are the roughly 70-mile-wide path away from the OR to the SC.

The moon orbits the earth.

Q: What will traffic be like on the day of the eclipse?

IL is just one of 14 states that will witness the total solar eclipse.

Almost 12.2 million Americans live in the path of totality, but NASA predicts that millions more will visit it that day.

"The eclipse itself is a process", said Stephenie Berggrun, with The Schiele Museum of Natural History. At 11:54 a.m., "the moon can be seen slowly coming across the sun, and as the afternoon goes on, you " ll see more and more" of the sun blocked out-if not quite all the way.

Recommended for photographing a solar eclipse: a telephoto lens, sturdy tripod, solar eclipse glasses, solar filter for camera, and extra batteries. Always supervise children using solar eclipse glasses. The state is one of the last bastions of dark skies in the country and offers both aspiring and professional astronomers some of the best terrain to view the night sky all summer long.
