If you're a latecomer to this series, and you may not want or have time to go back and listen to the previous episodes. In this podcast and the one next week, then, I will dispense wisdom as if you were a total newbie hearing about the eclipse for the first time. For those of you with plans in place, think of this as a last-minute checkup.

We’ve heard it all our lives: “Don’t look at the Sun!” In the past year, however, that message has changed to, “You can look at the Sun during the eclipse, but do it safely.” And there are safe ways to observe the event’s partial phases, when part of the brilliant but dangerous-to-look-at disk of our daytime star is still visible.

Way back in April 2015, in podcast #11 in this series, I compiled a list of locations on the center line. But what about other, not-quite-so-fortunate-as-to-be-on-the-center-line towns? In this podcast, I’ll list some other locations in the 12 main states along with how long totality lasts at each spot.

On August 7, exactly two weeks before the big event, a partial lunar eclipse will occur. The whole event will be visible throughout Russia, China, India, and Australia. Because it is an eclipse, I wanted to dedicate at least a brief podcast to it. These days, you never know who’s going to be where and when!

Alaska Airlines is chasing "The Great American Eclipse" on August 21, with a special charter flight. This one’s for select astronomy enthusiasts and eclipse chasers who want to experience totality from 35,000+ feet above Earth. Alaska Airlines is giving one lucky fan and a guest a chance to win a seat on the flight.

Astronomers Without Borders is launching a major new nationwide initiative. It’s one that will have a significant, long-lasting impact on STEM education. This educational campaign, sponsored by Google, is open to all across the U.S. But it has a special emphasis on underserved communities who may not otherwise have the opportunity of leveraging the rare natural laboratory of a solar eclipse to learn about the importance of the Sun and its light.

October 14, 2023. There’s another important date to mark on your calendar. It’s slightly less than six months before the next Great American total solar eclipse April 8, 2024. On the previous October 14th, an annular eclipse will sweep from the Northwest U.S. through Texas. Let's discuss.

If the eclipse August 21 will be your first view of totality, the first question you'll have afterward is, "When's the next one?" To answer that, I prepared a list of the total solar eclipses that will touch the continental United States in this century. Enjoy. (I mean, dream.)

Why tell stories in science education? Stories can spark children’s interest and imagination. Stories don’t offer a scientific explanation, but they can captivate children and inspire them to wonder. Once we've caught their interest and invited them to wonder, we can start talking science. We also can link a story to many other elements of the curriculum, from music making to creative writing, reinforcing children’s learning by using different styles of teaching.

On May 30, I received a press release titled “Galileoscopes & Solar Filters Available for August 2017 Solar Eclipse.” Galileoscope is now offering telescope and optics kits bundled with ISO-certified safe solar filters from Rainbow Symphony. This combination is perfect for the August 21 solar eclipse.
