UNL offering students chance to see eclipse

Lisa Powell

For armchair astronomers and almost everyone else watching the skies during the total solar eclipse august 21, it will all be over in 2½ minutes. On this day, the moon will align perfectly between the sun and Earth, thus blocking the sun's light for the entire U.S. landscape.

A narrow band of the lower 48 from OR to SC will have the opportunity to see a total eclipse. The next time we'll see one is 2024.

"We believe strongly in making the most of this rare astronomical event, in the realms of the general public, education, and creating meaningful long-lasting partnerships".

A total solar eclipse can usually be seen somewhere on Earth every 18 months. "Eclipse: The Sun Revealed" plays at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and at 7 p.m. on Saturdays.

2, Paul Alimena, a member of the Westchester Amateur Astronomers and friend of the Astronomical Society of Greenwich, will give a presentation about the upcoming solar eclipse that will occur on August 21. So, in order for a total solar eclipse to happen, you have to have that beach ball sun three football fields away line up with that red pepper flake, and cast a shadow on my ground of sausage.

The result is an unnatural, spooky twilight during the day.The eclipse's path of totality will expand over parts of 12 states and Auburn is expected to get a good partial view.

In US first, scientists edit genes of human embryos
Many critics are anxious that the practice could lead to " designer babies " that are engineered with genetic enhancements. But many are opposed to these types of experiments over concerns it could be used to create " designer babies ".

"The one thing no one wants to do is actually see this with the naked eye".

The rest of the continental United States will witness a partial solar eclipse.

You won't turn to stone but you could harm your eyes, because the sun's bright light puts too much stimulation on the retina, causing a condition known as solar retinopathy, a condition that literally burns the retina through chemical reactions. As the moon crosses between the earth and sun, the sun will appear to change shape as it will be partially blocked from our view.

Children will also make their own pinhole viewer, which will act like a pinhole camera except instead of capturing an image, they are used to view an image.

"We'll have cameras positioned throughout, and we'll have our host, Mike Massimino, in SC, which will be the last place that you will see the eclipse", Etkind said.
