NASA captures stunning images of the Great American Eclipse

NASA just recorded the International Space Station flying in front of the solar eclipse

Meanwhile, there was only one place where you could witness both a transit of the ISS across the partially eclipsed sun and the total solar eclipse later in the morning; it was at the intersection of this transit path with the moon's shadow path in Wyoming.

Projections place parts of southeast Oklahoma in the path of 100 percent totality - coming as close to the immediate area as Talihina and Poteau - and predict that McAlester could see as much as 98.77 percent totality. "We come up with these great theoretical models and know that they apply to nature, but when you see the eclipse, you actually see it happen", Christensen said. A video submitted to WHSV by Patrick Flanagan, showing a timelapse of the eclipse over Silver Lake, can also be watched above.

We took off our glasses and the moon was a dark circle and the sun a glowing, white halo.

Julianne Sweeney could not contain her excitement as sheer peered at Monday's solar eclipse through one of the telescopes outside the Integrated Science Center at SUNY Geneseo.

"We still have some eclipse glasses left", said Hopkins.

"Wow ... that's awesome ... incredible ...", she said as the eclipse was approaching its peak position.

The sun's corona flashing out from behind the moon during Monday's total solar eclipse as seen from Weiser, Idaho. Total solar eclipses occurred over northeastern United States on October 2, 1959 and July 20, 1963. "And that's not an experience you get very often".

Wanda Spruill of Leicester recalled watching the 1979 eclipse through a pinhole projector. At least they said so. Oh well, I admit that it is hard to put the experience into words.

Pam Jones told me, "I don't have any experience with shooting an eclipse but I read a ton of articles, got a solar filter for my camera etc". Visitor April Rosenthal said she didn't mind paying if she knew it meant she and her husband, Paul, would have a reserved spot. Those that stayed around were able to get glimpses through breaks in the clouds.

"It's a unique experience because it's so rare", said Joe DeBell, a Dansville Central School science teacher who led the workshop. Even though using its digital zoom would badly degrade the image quality, I had decided that I would be satisfied to use my iPhone to take a few photos.

The first thing you have to do when chasing down an eclipse is to find a safe way of viewing the sun.

For days, news reports had warned against viewing the eclipse without special eye protection, due to the permanent damage that doing so would cause to the retina of our eyes.

Totality seemed to come on rather quickly.

If you miss the next total solar eclipse in 2024, there won't be another in the contiguous United States until August 2044.

The eclipse will be a less impressive version of Monday's event, with portions of lower right-hand corner of the sun being shadowed for about 150 minutes, peaking at around 1:12 p.m.

Whereas this year's eclipse traversed the country from coast-to-coast, the 2024 eclipse will travel northeastward from Texas to Maine.
