Each of the four "Eclipse Across America" episodes features inside perspectives from NASA scientists, astronomers, local historians and lifelong eclipse chasers, according to the statement.

Most any of the solar shades you find should work as long as they are compliant with 12312-2 worldwide safety standards. From Oxford you will see the moon cover roughly 91% of the sun.

Total solar eclipses occur when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth and blocks all or part of the sun.

While the eclipse won't be complete in Colorado, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to travel to Wyoming to watch the once-in-a-lifetime event that's been dubbed the Great American Eclipse. Special glasses will be needed in order to view the eclipse without damaging your eyes.

Neither Mercury nor Venus have moons.

Eclipses, the space agency explains, happen when the moon, the sun and Earth align near what's called the "line of nodes" - an imaginary line that represents the moon and Earth's orbital planes intersecting. The next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the United States will occur on October 14, 2023, and will be visible from California to Florida.

If you're wondering when the next total solar eclipse will happen across the entire continental US, you'll have to wait a couple more years.
