Solar eclipse to occur on first day of fall classes

Lisa Powell

The last total solar eclipse happened in 1979, but the last total solar eclipse visible from coast-to-coast happened 99 years ago. "After this experiment flies, we will have about 10 times more samples to analyze than all previously flown stratosphere microbiology missions combined".

During the upcoming total solar eclipse, a team of NASA-funded scientists will observe the sun using telescopes aboard two of NASA's WB-57F research aircraft.

The total solar eclipse will be at maximum coverage in Henderson at 1:24 p.m. 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.

A total solar eclipse is a visual marvel that happens when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth.

Missouri Capital Eclipse Celebration, August 19-21, Jefferson City Jefferson City will experience about 2.5 minutes of total eclipse and with the city's central location and accessibility, local officials are expecting more than 50,000 people to head there for viewing.

Direct viewing requires special eyewear that greatly reduces the brightness of the sun to safe levels.

A partial eclipse isn't as dramatic as a full eclipse, but is still worth watching, as long as you don't look directly at it.

When asking Everly what makes the safety glasses more protective than sunglasses, he explained that they are tinted so darkly that the only thing you can see is the sun. NASA announced that looking directly at the sun during the eclipse is considered unsafe and the only safe way to look directly at the eclipsed sun is through special objective solar filter glasses, such as the ones purchased by the committee. 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.

It's still a few weeks away, but area astronomers are busy preparing for the moon to blot out the sun.

"Up in this region, the sun is only going to be 90% blocked, so you HAVE TO wear the glasses for the WHOLE event".

At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 2, he will present an informal overview of the eclipse and take questions from the crowd at Nomad World Pub, 418 E. Wilson St., for Science on Tap-Madison.
