Viewing the Great American Eclipse: An experience shared with many Americans

NASA just recorded the International Space Station flying in front of the solar eclipse

If you didn't get the chance to see the eclipse, Google put together a collection of photos taken by a group of volunteers across the United States during the August 21 total solar eclipse. From Oregon to SC, millions of people got to see the sun entirely eclipsed by the moon, turning day into night for a few moments.

Whether or not you thought the total solar eclipse America just witnessed was truly the event of the year, or as exciting as some claimed it to be, it was certainly one of the most covered and advertised happenings in the recent past. Anchored from the College of Charleston, in SC - we showed you views of the eclipse that only NASA could. A video submitted to WHSV by Patrick Flanagan, showing a timelapse of the eclipse over Silver Lake, can also be watched above. When the moon blotted out the sun, it became dark and temperatures dropped.

The Aug. 21 eclipse across America generated interest and excitement far and wide. We've seen some incredible images come out of the event (check out Top 10 Solar Eclipse Photos Found Around the Web).

"Wow ... that's fantastic ... incredible ...", she said as the eclipse was approaching its peak position.

It is theorised (and based on our investigation of the moon's composition and what we understand about the universe) that in the early solar system there were any number of planets formed from the accretion disk that circled the sun.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and blocking all or part of the sun. "There was such a huge amount of interest in this eclipse, you couldn't help but get into it". Some people I know in Texas made a pinhole camera so they could watch the eclipse through it, and set the grass on fire.

Another called the eclipse "amazing".

"I'll cover for you", she said. Nobody's looking at the sun without their special eclipse glasses.

"When I first came across Chizhevsky's research it was fascinating because you're seeing thousands of years' worth of human history and human events that seem to coincide nearly perfectly with the cycles of the sun, and the radiation and cosmic rays that are coming down cosmologically and that are ultimately impacting human consciousness and the events that take place here on Earth." .

"It's a unique experience because it's so rare", said Joe DeBell, a Dansville Central School science teacher who led the workshop.

The students were each provided with the special glasses, at their final station, necessary for viewing the eclipse in its coming and going stages. This debris came together forming our moon which orbits in the Earth's gradational force and reflects back to us on Earth the light of the sun.

The 2017 solar eclipse is now history. The total solar eclipse on August 31, 1932 crossed over northwest Canada and the New England states.

The eclipse will be a less impressive version of Monday's event, with portions of lower right-hand corner of the sun being shadowed for about 150 minutes, peaking at around 1:12 p.m.

He said the math is very complicated, but it can be figured out precisely, with the next eclipse to take place in April, 2024.
