  • NASA           This Week at NASA The Epic Solar Eclipse and More

If you didn't get the chance to see the eclipse, Google put together a collection of photos taken by a group of volunteers across the U.S. during the August 21 total solar eclipse.

On August 21st, just as the Moon was about to pass in front of the sun, the students of Earth to Sky Calculus released a network of 11 space weather balloons from 5 states in the path of totality.

NASA said in one of its articles leading up to the big day that "in our lifetime, this is the best eclipse to see", and that scientists will be "drowning in data", now that technology to measure atmospheric changes and the like are much more advanced now than the last time a total eclipse took place.

The Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park hosted a free outdoor viewing event for the "Great American Eclipse". A video submitted to WHSV by Patrick Flanagan, showing a timelapse of the eclipse over Silver Lake, can also be watched above.

The other 36 states were all treated to a partial solar eclipse, where the moon covers only a part of the sun.

Transit of the International Space Station across the partial eclipsed sun, August 21, 2017. I set my focus to infinity and waited for the eclipse to begin.

Looking through special solar glasses that filtered the harmful rays, the sun appeared as an orange fireball, while the moon was a sharp-edged circle crossing the glowing spheroid.

Meanwhile, the United States will not experience another solar eclipse until 2024, which makes the stunning images much more special. "You've got to see it". So he propped some binoculars their grandpa gave them with the large side angled towards the sun.

Wanda Spruill of Leicester recalled watching the 1979 eclipse through a pinhole projector.

Despite the practical application of the eclipse to the physics world, however, Christensen also said that the beauty of the eclipse alone makes a trip to view totality worth it.

Monday Apple Rumors: iPhone 8 Event May Take Place on September 12
The new iPhone 8 is rumored to be priced around $999 and climbing upwards of $1400 depending on the chosen memory capacity. If all goes according to plan, Apple in just about two weeks will introduce a brand new iPhone 7s and an iPhone 7s Plus .

"It's more than just a photo can show", said Rachael Amaya of Kuna, Idaho, "it's a whole experience".

"It's a unique experience because it's so rare", said Joe DeBell, a Dansville Central School science teacher who led the workshop. On Aug. 12, 2045, a total solar eclipse will traverse the country from coast to coast, much like this year's. Those that stayed around were able to get glimpses through breaks in the clouds. Totality is expected to come through southern Ontario and Quebec.

The glasses looked like something you'd be handed after buying tickets to a 3D movie, but with different lenses. If you missed it, catch the next one in April of 2024, with a path that crosses directly over Upstate New York!

The eclipse will be a less impressive version of Monday's event, with portions of lower right-hand corner of the sun being shadowed for about 150 minutes, peaking at around 1:12 p.m.

A crowd watches a live stream of NASA's online coverage of the "Great American Eclipse" at the central branch of the Newport Beach Public Library on Monday.
