If you’re interested in NASA Eclipse and other Science information, sign up to receive an email newsletter “Weekly on Wednesdays.” Science starts with a question, and so does "Science WOW!" Each week kicks off with a science question with answer link. "Science WOW!" also highlights a NASA science education tool such as NASA apps, interactive games, 3-D printing templates, etc.


Many eclipse enthusiasts host parties in local community centers, museums, observatories, parks or open fields. Even your own backyard is a good place to throw a party. It is always a good idea to choose place that has access to shade and facilities. You may also want to check weather-related Web sites for forecasts of your area. If the clouds move in, don’t worry! You can always connect to NASA’s live streaming event.

WHAT'S NEW

Why not celebrate the eclipse by making your own 3D Printed Pinhole Projector in the shape of the USA and/or a US State?


Humans have watched eclipses since before the dawn of written history, and during this long span of time our scientific understanding of the physical world has grown enormously. As a consequence, many of the older ideas we had about the causes and effects of total solar eclipses have been replaced by detailed physical explanations.

As we admire the rarity of a total solar eclipse, many questions come to mind that not only occur to us now, but have puzzled eclipse watchers for thousands of years.
