Partial Lunar Eclipse 2017 How To View The World's 'Consolation Prize' For Missing Great American Eclipse

Speck and other researchers at the University of Missouri have grants from NASA to study the sudden temperature shifts during the eclipse. No shadow, no eclipse. So the moon's shadow is cone-shaped, and its tip only reaches Earth's surface in a very narrow swath.

James Morris has been studying the stars, sun and moon his whole life. "So the moon is moving fastest of the motions involved".

The central branch of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library is fully prepared to help people enjoy the solar eclipse on August 21, thanks to a recent shipment of 1,000 solar glasses. The last total solar eclipse for the United States was almost 40 years ago.

The rising moon is seen during a partial lunar eclipse over Beirut, Lebanon August 8, 2017. Stop on by, learn about the Fab Lab, and register on the Great Eclipse Caper website to guarantee yourself one of the pairs of eclipse-safe glasses that will be handed out at the event. The last one in MO was in 1869 - visible only in the northeastern part of the state.

If you plan to watch the eclipse, those are the times you need to know.

-Why can't you look directly at an eclipse?

ECLIPSE FACTS: How fast is the solar eclipse?

The first signs of the eclipse will start to be seen just off Lincoln Beach, Oregon (9:05 am PDT).

Total eclipses are RARE in the U.S.

Some of the places AAS recommends to shop online are, Celestron, Explore Scientific and Meade Instruments.

-What causes an eclipse to occur? The shadow shall travel across the forecasted path at a remarkable speed of 1,500 miles per hour. This happens because of how the Earth spins as it orbits the sun. It will feature, on average, an astonishing 90 percent totality for many of us in the Treasure State. This basically means that future generations may only get to witness annular eclipses. The sun's ring of fire can still be seen and we instead experience an annular eclipse.

"Anywhere you can see it!" For example, there are areas of Missouri and IL that will see the total eclipse this year, and another one just 7 years from now. "It will be more than 60 degrees above the horizon".

If you already have a viewer from that list, make sure it isn't more than three years old and does not have wrinkles or scratches.
