Megamovie Project debuts simulator for August 21 total Solar Eclipse



Berkeley CA (SPX) Jun 22, 2017
Are you wondering what the total solar eclipse in late summer will look like from your patio? Or where to travel to get the best view of the eclipse? You can enter the ZIP code or name of your city or town and see an animation of how the Sun will move across the sky over a three-hour period - sped up 1,000 or 4,000 times - and how much of a bite will be taken out of the Sun by the eclipsing Moon. If you are lucky enough to be inside the path of totality, the simulator shows the eerily darken ... read more

Astronomers have used the sharp vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to repeat a century-old test of Einstein's general theory of relativity. The Hubble team measured the mass of a white dwarf, the burned-out remnant of a normal star, by seeing how much it deflects the light from a background star. This observation represents the first time Hubble has witnessed this type of effect creat ... more

Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are comets and asteroids in heliocentric orbits that have been influenced by planetary flybys causing them to approach Earth. Comets are composed mostly of water ice and dust particles that were formed in the cold outer planet system. Most of the rocky asteroids were formed in the warmer inner solar system between the orbits of Mars and Earth. There is a great dea ... more
