Solar eclipse to be streamed live for first time, from balloons

If a citizen is concerned about missing the eclipse, don't worry, there will be another chance in 2024 when Van Wert will experience a total solar eclipse.

You must have the glasses, a solar filter, or a welding shade of 12 or above to look directly at the sun during the eclipse. The peak of the eclipse will occur at 2:37 p.m., and the eclipse will end at 3:57 p.m.

The total eclipse - the first in almost a century to stretch across the continental USA - will treat millions to a fleeting and unforgettable sight when the sun disappears behind the moon and day turns to night.

The researchers applied a wave turbulence-driven methodology to heat the corona, which helped better reproduce the underlying physical processes in the corona, and helped produce a more accurate eclipse prediction.

At the library's event in Elkins, Interim Director Stephanie Murphy said visitors will be able to watch NASA's live streaming coverage of the eclipse, while enjoying snacks such as MoonPies and Starburst sweets.

The most recent total eclipse to occur in Richmond's location was on July 20, 1506, but one path of totality came as close as Chesterfield on June 24, 1778. The farther away you hold your camera, the bigger your projected image will be. Notes NASA: "Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse ("totality"), when the moon entirely blocks the sun's bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality". United Kingdom is working with NASA Kentucky on this nationwide project.

"The eclipse is a rare moment that the whole country is able to share", Dr. Nathan Heilman said.

"The only safe way to look at the eclipse with the naked eye is during totality", said Lincolnview middle school science teacher Susan Tenhundfeld. During the eclipse, every shaft of light will show the eclipsed sun.

The event will reach its peak in Polson at 11:31 the moon will obscure just under 89 percent of the suns surface. But Hayek said in an interview there were other glasses passes out by the library that are not covered by the warning.

Monday's eclipse is expected to be the most photographed and shared event in human history.

It's true that animals can wear solar eclipse glasses, however according experts with petMD- neither cats or dogs or any animal for that matter have instincts to stare directly at the sun.

Hardcore eclipse chasers pore over weather forecasts, especially the day before the action so they can alter their plans.

"Probably 100 million people are going to look at this but the dangers of looking at the Sun are real and serious", said Vincent Jerome Giovinazzo, director of ophthalmology at Staten Island University Hospital Northwell Health. And in the West, the region most reliant on solar energy, the eclipse will pass in the morning, a period of relatively low energy demand.

The most recent annular eclipse to be witnessed in Richmond was September 18, 1838. For more information, call the museum at 501-396-7050 or visit

On Monday, the deepest part of the shadow, or umbra, cast by the moon will fall over a 70-mile-wide (113-km-wide), 2,500-mile-long (4,000-km-long) "path of totality" traversing 14 states.

NASA has unveiled a website for the eclipse, Bridges said, that includes tips on viewing the event safely at You'll also find activities and apps to learn more before and during the eclipse.

"It's building us toward a point where we can run the economy off renewable energy and store the excess in a diverse range of batteries", Kammen said.
