How to take in the solar eclipse: Tips from UW Space Place

Lisa Powell

Mueller Planetarium at the Nebraska State Museum will present "Earth, Moon and Sun" at 11 a.m. and "Eclipses and Phases of the Moon" at noon on August 18 and 19.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon is directly between the Earth and the sun. This is the first time a total solar eclipse has covered the Lower 48 from coast to coast in 99 years. The last time a total eclipse graced viewers in the United States was February 26, 1979, Parade reported, and it was in a limited geographic area.

"Extending the observing time and going to very high altitude might allow us to see a few events or track waves that would be essentially invisible in just two minutes of observations from the ground". After this year's event, the next solar eclipse in North America will be in 2024, when the total eclipse starts in Mexico and travels northeast through Texas, southern IL and Canada.

Justin Bieber Hits Photographer with Pickup Truck
Near the end of the video, after the ambulance arrives, Bieber speaks with the police, although it's not clear what he's saying. It is then claimed that he left in a auto "leased by Kourtney Kardashian", who was having dinner with her sister, Kim, nearby.

The total eclipse will be visible from a narrow corridor throughout the U.S. and have a magnitude of 1.0306. 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.

During a total solar eclipse, the moon completely blocks the sun, allowing the sun's corona to be seen in stark contrast to the surrounding darkness.

Along that center line, the total eclipse will last for about two and a half minutes.

Double blow convulses Republican bid to reform U.S. health care
Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that would have repealed most of Obamacare and given Congress two years to come up with a replacement plan. Then they would attempt to hammer out a more comprehensive repeal and replace proposal in the conference with the House.

"The sun will look like a thin crescent moon", Lattis said. "The sun is just so bright that there are things we can not see except for when the light is mostly blocked out for us".

"Eclipse Over Clemson" will also feature several speakers, including Clemson University President James Clements, Founding Dean of the College of Science Cynthia Young, renown "eclipse-chaser" Rick Brown, and others.

The rest of the continental United States will witness a partial solar eclipse. A lesson on how to make a pinhole box viewer, safe for viewing eclipses, will also be provided.

Derrick Rose meeting with Lakers
It was another awful year for the Knicks as the team finished 31-51, good enough for a 12th place in the Eastern Conference. Ring-chasing is never completely off the table, but Rose would be doing so while earning the lowest salary of his career.

The program will take place at 7:30 p.m.in the Radcliffe Children's Wing of the Perrot Memorial Library, 90 Sound Beach Ave. 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.
