Library to distribute eclipse glasses August 13

View the Partial Solar Eclipse From Mississauga This Month

Speaking of science, you can go learn more about the eclipse and get safe tips on viewing the heavenly show at the Midway-Riceboro Library at 4 p.m. August 15 and the Hinesville Library at4 p.m. August 16.

We often talk about teachable moments.

The Ontario Science Centre says that the moon will block 70 per cent of the sun's light over Toronto. Looking further down the road, we will get a chance to see totality here with the eclipse of April 8, 2024 - the northern edge of the narrow band of the umbra of our moon's shadow will pass right over IU Kokomo. And a lunar eclipse, or an eclipse of the moon, occurs more often and can be seen by so many more people than a solar eclipse.

Rhode Island will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk. The last time the contiguous USA saw a total eclipse was in 1979. The next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the United States will occur on October 14, 2023, and will be visible from California to Florida.

To take pictures of the eclipse on a smartphone, NASA suggests covering the lens with a solar filter just before and after totality, as this will provide a clear image of the solar disc.

"The moon is much, much smaller than the Sun, but the Sun is also much, much further away from the Earth, so we have this attractive coincidence in the sky that the moon and the Sun appear nearly exactly the same size as viewed from Earth", Rohl said.

Depending on the location, the totality will last anywhere from a few seconds to two minutes and 41 seconds. About 12.2 million Americans live in the path of the total eclipse. "So it's just a really handsome coincidence up there in the sky". Teachers can explain to their students how and why an eclipse happens. It's elongated, or an ellipse.

"I have one patient in his 60s who looked at the sun through a telescope when he was 9 years old and still has a central block in his vision", says Van Gelder, chairman of the ophthalmology department at the University of Washington Medical School.

If the skies do not cooperate for us here in Kokomo, try a livestream of the eclipse from https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive for example.
