TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017 IN THE PICTURES
Tourists from all over the world are expected to flock to the line of totality to witness the unusual event.
The line of totality can also be adapted to within a mile of the site of the planned Giant Magellan Telescope in La Serena, on the outskirts of the Atacama Desert in Chile.
“We are very much looking forward to seeing the total solar eclipse of July,” said Patrick McCarthy, an astronomer and vice-president of the Giant Magellan Telescope (right), in a statement by e-mail to Fox News. “We will also take in the spectacular Chilean night sky and to get a first-hand look at the progress of the construction work on the country site. It promises to be a great week.”
TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE: THE BIG EVENT IS FINALLY HERE
It’s a powerful 1,500-ton Giant Magellan Telescope, which is expected to close in 2025, aimed at increasing our understanding of the universe.

A lot of Americans are, of course, and will be fondly remembered for the total solar eclipse of 2017, that have captivated millions of people all over the country.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN?
The coast-to-coast, the eclipse will be on Dec. 21 of that year, the cutting of a 70-foot-wide path of totality on the coast of the Pacific ocean to the Atlantic ocean, with the waves of people to attract a total solar eclipse glasses in order to experience the unusual.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN?

In the us, it will be closely followed by the July 2 a total eclipse of the sun in the South of the usa. “The study of the Sun during total solar eclipses, is helping scientists to understand the origin and behavior of the solar radiation that drives the space weather near the Earth, which could have an impact on the health of astronauts in space, and the durability of the materials used in construction of the spacecraft,” explained NASA on its website. “Similar data will continue to be an important factor in the planning of NASA to return astronauts to the Moon in 2024 and a possible manned missions to Mars.”
The space agency is live-streaming the total solar eclipse on the Exploratorium in San Francisco, california. NASA will also be providing updates from the Parker’s Solar Probe.
NASA’S PARKER, A SOLAR PROBE TO BLAST OFF ON AN EPIC JOURNEY TO ‘TOUCH THE SUN’
The Probe blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on the top of a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket on Aug. 12, 2018. The $1.5 billion mission is to take humanity closer to the Sun than ever before.

In October 2018, the Probe has picked up the record for the closest approach to the Sun was due to man-made objects. In April 2019 at the latest, however, Parker has had her second close approach to within 15 million kilometres of the star.
At its closest approach, in a bid for the 2024 games, the probe will come to within 3.8 million miles of the Sun’s surface. It will be traveling at about 430,000 km / h), setting a new speed record for a human-made object.
NASA’S PARKER, A SOLAR PROBE TO BREAK THE RECORD, THE CLOSEST SPACECRAFT TO THE SUN
ESA’s Proba-2 satellite experienced a 3-partial eclipse of the sun during the total solar eclipse of Nov. 13, 2012 (EST.). This image was taken from a video made by the spacecraft.
Other spacecraft will also be monitoring the 2nd of July, total solar eclipse in South America and so on. In addition to the Parker’s Solar Probe of NASA, will be providing updates on the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission, which is to make use of the four spacecraft in the vicinity of the Earth’s orbit in order to study the size of the space dominated by the earth’s magnetic field.
