Total Eclipse of the Sun – WATCH AGAIN – NASA experts and cameras followed the path of the moon crossing the sun
Hundreds of thousands of people travelling to the various hot spots where they can view the tremendous eclipse of the moon passing the sun.
Solar eclipses happen because the moon orbits the Earth at an average of 239,000 miles – which is just the right distance for it to appear the same size in the sky as the much larger sun, which is 93 million miles away. Its then total.
The Eclipse comes at a perfect time for the public especially children. It’s summer kids are on holiday and eager to have the opportunity to see such an awesome sight.
All of North America is expected to be dark. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights. It is an experience of a lifetime.
It can been seen in a 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.
Eclipse events are happening across the USA and worldwide. Fans can’t wait for this opportunity, but are warned to take safety precautions when looking at the Sun and Moon. Special glasses needed.
NASA will be with the event throughout the day. On the live stream videos give scientific data and safety. Trouble spots for travellers also identified.
