How a total solar eclipse happens, explained with augmented reality

How a total solar eclipse happens, explained with augmented reality”

We are now just one week away from the great North American solar eclipse.

According to Dr. Mike Morris, OD, a self-proclaimed eclipse chaser, “Most people will never witness a total eclipse of the sun. About 75 percent of the sun will be blocked by the moon in the Lehigh Valley.

You can't find eclipse-watching glasses?

Among the coverage plans, KGW intends to have a crew on a plane over the Pacific Ocean to film views of the eclipse; KTVB will produce a 2-hour television special; and KSDK will be live in Carbondale, Illinois, at a NASA official viewing location.

It will be worth watching, even if the eclipse is not at totality in Indiana, according to Ginger Murphy, Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of State Parks deputy director.

Saturday, 10 a.m.to 10 p.m.

NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) will be broadcasting the eclipse live online at nasa.gov/eclipselive.

In collaboration with the UA Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, the UA's Steward Observatory and the UA College of Optical Sciences, Flandrau will host a Solar Eclipse Viewing Event on the UA Mall in front of Flandrau.

"There have been many maps created to document the path of the eclipse through the United States and the world", Boschetti said in a statement.

The full eclipse will not be visible in Pennsylvania, but will instead follow a track proceeding from OR southeast through Missouri, Tennessee and SC, according to a map posted on the American Astronomical Society website.

The Weston Public Library has scheduled events to celebrate this unusual event. Additional glasses can be purchased for $3 while supplies last.

The library also held a makerspace workshop this week for children to make their own pinhole projector eclipse viewers. Viewing is free and open to the public. "However, we have been selling hundreds of pairs of solar viewing glasses per day (and are sold out)".

The eclipse runs from 1:24 p.m.to 4 p.m., with maximum visibility at 2:45 p.m. UCLA will have specially filtered solar telescopes that protect the eyes while revealing stunning details of the sun, such as enormous clouds of ejected solar material, and surface features such as sunspots, which can be larger than the Earth. Looking into the sun's brightness can cause damage to the retina, the light-sensitive part of the eye, and blindness.

Here are some places where you can safely watch the eclipse.

All you need are two pieces of stiff white cardboard, (such as two paper plates), or two sheets of plain white paper. The Press & Journal did not attempt to verify whether any or all of these vendors still have the glasses available.

It occurs on April 8th, 2024.
