On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk.
Go to NASA’s Total Eclipse 2017 site for maps and factsheets to download, educational resources, information about science opportunities the eclipse offers, and many other activities, including instructions on various methods and tools for viewing. Download and create your own 3D printed pinhole projector in the shape of the USA and/or a US State.
