On July 2, the path of totality of a total solar eclipse will cross the Pacific Ocean, including Oeno Island, and then cross Chile and Argentina. The observations at this minimum phase of the sunspot cycle will provide important information about the solar corona, and will fill in the ordinary gaps between on-disk extreme-ultraviolet imaging and satellite imaging of the outer corona.
To test Albert Einstein’s prediction, with his General Theory of Relativity, with observations from the total solar eclipse of May 29, 1919, observers led by Arthur Eddington went to Principe.
Pamela and Fraser talk about What to do, and (perhaps more importantly) what NOT to do during Solar Eclipse!
