Mariana Lazarova, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, appreciates the opportunities that come with a solar eclipse. It's a big one because our neck of the woods is close to the path where it will be a total eclipse, which hasn't occurred here in a long time. It became very dark, even the stars could be seen; it seemed to men as if everything were green, and the Sun became like a crescent of the Moon, from the horns of which a glow similar to that of red-hot charcoals was emanating.
On March 7, 1970, the path of totality ran up the east coast of the United States. The Eclipse begins in Lima at 1:01:48pm with the mid eclipse happening at 2:27:42pm. "The reason is because the orbital plane of the Earth around the sun is actually not in line with the orbital plane of the moon around the Earth", he says.
Every year, the moon's orbit gets slightly farther from Earth - about four centimeters each year. "We just happen to be so lucky that the shadow will pass right over Kearney".
Stocks Make Comeback, but Haven't Fully Recovered From North Korea Selloff
Penney dropped 78 cents, or 17%, to $3.93 Friday after the department store's second-quarter loss exceeded expectations. The escalation provided an excuse for a selloff many investors consider overdue, some investors and analysts said.
A mother, who has a misguided view of how nature works, asked if it was possible to reschedule the total solar eclipse because the date wasn't practical for her. The last coast-to-coast eclipse was in 1918, and after this one, the next won't come until 2045.
For those who want to know where to buy glasses to view the August 21 solar eclipse, the American Astronomical Society has some words of advice to guard against fake eclipse glasses being sold in numerous places that will not protect the eyes from injury. Most cameras, including many found on phones, have adjustable exposures, which can help you darken or lighten your image during the event. However, it's not really a necessity, as even on normal days, animals don't particularly have a habit of looking at the sun, so there's no specific worry as to whether they will on the specific day of the eclipse.
Nikon says that despite the fact that the moon covers the sun, the crescent that is seen around the moon is so risky that it could cause vision damage and even blindness.
