NASA EDGE

If you want signs and wonders, NASA EDGE has you covered with a preview of the most significant astronomical event in years: the Total Solar Eclipse 2017.  Viewable by most of the United States for the first time in decades, this event can’t be missed, and NASA EDGE provides a perfect guide to plan your own observation.  We have NASA Senior Research Scientist Eric Christian, Mr. Eclipse Fred Espenak, STEM Program Manager for the Girl Scouts of Illinois Emily Stanley, Citizen CATE Experiment Director Matt Penn, and finally Southern Illinois University Eclipse Committee Co-Chair Bob Baer who is planning events close to the Path of Totality.  Plus, the NASA EDGE team gives a Sith free look at safe solar eclipse viewing practices just for tuning into the show.
