In a new blog post , NASA shows off some absolutely incredible images of a distant star in the midst of a violent temper tantrum. At a distance of 7,500 light-years, we're perfectly safe to watch this intense blast from afar, but the show isn't over yet.
No day looks to be a complete washout at this time, but there will be parts of the day and evening that will have a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Tue: High: 93 Low: 74 Partly cloudy; chance for evening/night storms. Increasing clouds, with a low around 73. Tomorrow: Becoming mostly sunny.
NASA has conducted a full-up launch abort test for the Orion capsules created to carry astronauts to the moon. In the test, which was carried live on NASA TV, an unmanned Orion capsule was launched by a mini-rocket - a repurposed first stage of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
In a nutshell, the moon completely covers the entire surface the sun unlike an annual solar eclipse where the Moon partially blocks the light of the Sun. Regular sunglasses aren't cut out for watching the solar eclipse . The live stream will kick off at 12:53 am IST which means it will be July 3 by the time this celestial event starts.
The path of totality , where the moon visibly blocks the sun, will span parts of Chile and Argentina. The Exploratorium museum of San Francisco will also be live broadcasting the spectacle from 1pm PDT (1.30am IST on Wednesday) to 2pm PDT (2.30am IST on Wednesday) on its website .
In Chile and Argentina , eclipse-chasers below will experience totality for a maximum of two minutes and 35 seconds, though it depends on exactly where you observe from. The one time it's safe to look directly at the eclipse without filters is during totality. The eclipse won't be visible in India. The so-called eclipse fever was a national phenomenon in 2017 as millions of Americans enjoyed one of the rarest and most spectacular celestial events that can be seen with the naked eye.
