"It was a lot of fun seeing everyone get behind something like that", said Sierra Silverwood '18, who watched the solar event from just outside the Joe Rosenfield Center. Some of the large planets have objects called moons that orbit around them.
Ann Cady Jenson of Geneseo came to the college for a look. Had I involved my wife earlier, she would have had all this taken care of in 2012. In total, the NASA package claimed more than 90 million page views on its main website and special eclipse subsite. Solar and lunar eclipses are terms we use when viewing the relationship of the sun and moon from Earth. The area that the moon's shadow is indirectly cast upon is known as the penumbra.
Keys said the answer to that question encompasses a variety of projects.
"To see this many people excited about science and astronomy is a good thing", Pellerin said.
Astronomical bodies, like the Sun, also have electromagnetic fields. Whether or not the eclipse lived up to everyone's expectations, it's certainly something everyone who saw it in 2017 will remember. "When people said worldwide, or from everywhere, everyone rolled their eyes at us", said Wilcox.
John Izzo of Saratoga Springs and his wife had been vacationing at Letchworth State Park and planning to go to the state University of Buffalo to see their son when they learned of the eclipse-viewing at SUNY Geneseo.
He said the eclipse provided a natural teaching moment for the agency. "And that's not an experience you get very often". "It may not happen again in my lifetime". This eclipse was the first to run from the West Coast to the East Coast since 1918.
Ella Bailey of Geneseo was seeing her first. "We ended up at a location that allowed us to see all the stages of the eclipse, including totality, even as some clouds scuttled through intermittently".More news: Mayweather refused last-minute prop wagers on fight with McGregor

"It's really cool", Meredith said. I just wanted to experience the moment with my friends, or so I thought.
Christer Watson, a physics professor and observatory director at Manchester University, is collecting unwanted pairs of glasses at the Science Central and plans to distribute them for free in the future. This was the time that you could safely remove the protective glasses and look at the eclipse with the naked eye. Here in Keene, New York, the moon obscured 65 percent of the sun. When looking through the glasses without staring at the sun, the wearer sees nothing but gray. They offered the closest view and resolution so sharp viewers could see sunspots. The three-hour event would peak at 1:26 p.m. when the moon would totally block the surface of the sun for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. This reflected the eclipse down on the concrete below.
"We got like five or six sheets of flash designs".
The temperature dropped about 8 degrees from the beginning of the eclipse until near its end.
But no one seemed to mind.
"Library staff and customers shared their glasses, pinhole cameras, and enthusiasm with one another to view the phases of the eclipse", Library Services Manager Natalie Basmaciyan wrote in an email.
"It's a once in a life time experience", Burritt said.
