Solar Eclipse 2017 Information
Welcome to Solar Eclipse 2017 Information website. Our mission is to provide all whom are interested in the upcoming August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse (TSE) with pertinent information about the eclipse, links to supporting sites, along with news articles and ongoing research in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.
If you like this website and/or our Facebook and Twitter pages, and would like to donate to us, we appreciate it. This site was built out of love for science, nature, and humanities ability to appreciate special events, such as solar eclipses.
Thank you in advance:
When depicting an eclipse path, data visualizers have usually chosen to represent the moon’s shadow as an oval. By bringing in a variety of NASA data sets, visualizer Ernie Wright has created a new and more accurate representation of the eclipse.
For the first time, we are able to see that the moon’s shadow is better represented as a polygon. This more complicated shape is based NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s view of the mountains and valleys that form the moon’s jagged edge. By combining moon’s terrain, heights of land forms on Earth, and the angle of the sun, Wright is able to show the eclipse path with the greatest accuracy to date.
