NASA Announces Television Coverage for Aug. 21 Solar Eclipse

On Monday, Aug. 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the Sun, and NASA Television will carry it live from coast to coast from unique vantage points on the ground and from aircraft and spacecraft, including the International Space Station. Coverage will be featured during the live four-hour broadcast Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA.

Programming begins at 9 a.m. PDT (noon EDT) with a preview show hosted from Charleston, South Carolina. The main show begins at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT) and will cover the path of totality the eclipse will take across the United States, from Oregon to South Carolina. The program will feature views from NASA research aircraft, high-altitude balloons, satellites and specially-modified telescopes. It also will include live reports from Charleston, as well as from Salem, Oregon; Idaho Falls, Idaho; Beatrice, Nebraska; Jefferson City, Missouri; Carbondale, Illinois; Hopkinsville, Kentucky; and Clarksville, Tennessee.

The Toshiba Vision screen in New York's Times Square will broadcast the program live in its entirety to give the public a big-screen view of the eclipse. Viewers in Times Square can listen to NASA coverage while observing it on the big screen by downloading the NASA app or going to https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive.

     When I watched the eclipse online, I saw that NASA's servers were crashing every few minutes during the first hour or so. They have enough backbone for normal viewing, but this brought people "out of the woodwork". I also had the television on and got some good views on the CBS News.

     Skies in Toledo, Ohio were partly cloudy, so trying to observe the eclipse outside would have been tricky. The temperature outside was 88ºF, so I was not willing to stand out in the sunlight. I did hold a kitchen colander by the window for a few seconds and saw the effects.

     Over the next few days, weeks, and months, new data will be published on the various science websites (like NASA) and some online magazines.

Nice green effect (filters?), but no photo can do it justice, the camera is not as versatile as the eye, and an eclipse requires this more than any other. Of all the photos I have seen none even look much like the real thing, which is probably why so many people are amazed when the see the real thing.

Case in point, here's the vid I tried to take with my small digital...

I forgot that I took a few pics while photographing some cars we will sell.
I did use my welding filters, but also took some without. We had a thin overcast which actually helped out.
Almost like another filter.

Echo (...echo...). Nice composition, the clouds add a 'cosmic' effect to what would otherwise be a dull picture of a crescent (like mine  :-[ )
