Science behind the upcoming solar eclipse

Science behind the upcoming solar eclipse

On Aug. 21, parts of the Grand Strand will see its first total solar eclipse since 1970.

Dalton won't get the full impact of what some are calling the Great American Eclipse on August 21. Obviously, the closer you are to the path of totality, the more will be covered.

Nikon has published a guide on how to photograph a solar eclipse. The path will be 71 miles across.

On an arching diagonal line from SC to OR, many cities will experience a 100%, OR total solar eclipse for a few minutes. A total solar eclipse, which is when the Moon completely covers the Sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental USA along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.

All of the above apps are a free download for either Apple or Android devices.

Those in the center of the path will experience a total eclipse that will last for two and a half minutes. The last total solar eclipse to cross the United States occurred in 1918 and is not predicted to happen again until 2045. According to Time and Date, lunar eclipses are safe to watch - all you need is a pair of good binoculars or a telescope. The same thing happens during a total eclipse as the moon's shadow will cause a temporary drop in temperature.

Eventually, the moon will be far enough from the earth and will not be able to entirely block the sun out. "Even though we will see only the partial eclipse on the UNI campus this summer, it really is a once in a lifetime opportunity", Marcy Seavey, UNI STEM coordinator said. However, before the moon gets into that position, it's mandatory for you to wear protection for your eyes. "It's perfectly safe", Dundee said.

Mark your calendar! We've got a solar eclipse on August 21.

N Rathnashree, director of the Nehru Planetarium, Delhi said the penumbral part of the lunar eclipse, which is hard to discern, will start at 9:20 pm on Monday night, while the partial phase will start at 10:52 pm.
