The city of Carbondale (USA) will be unique – there will be two total solar eclipses within seven years – in 2017 and 2024.

Will start a solar Eclipse on August 21 at 21:26 local time. Scientists say that the Moon will cover the Sun for 1.5 hours, and the solar corona will be several times more than during previous eclipses.

On the origin of the solar Eclipse all know: Earth, Moon and Sun line up, the Moon covers the sun’s light falling on Earth, causing the dark shadow on the planet. Sometimes a lunar Eclipse. It is, unlike solar, can be several times a year. This occurs when the Earth passes between the sun and the Moon. At this time, the Earth casts a shadow on the lunar surface.

Solar Eclipse – a phenomenon not very rare. Usually it occurs about once in two years and see its not all the inhabitants of the Earth, because the Moon is much smaller than Earth, and casts a smaller shadow. When a total solar Eclipse is the Sun you can see the so-called crown.

The current total solar Eclipse that will be visible in the United States, is for the first time in almost 40 years. NASA reports that the last total solar Eclipse in North America was February 26, 1979, but it was not as long as expected.

When a total solar Eclipse a few degrees the air is cooling. For example, in 1834 there was a full solar Eclipse, which led to a drop in temperature to 28 degrees. And it almost instantly! This time not expected such a large fall in temperature. Predict that it will fall by only 10 degrees.

It should be remembered that though the Moon and covers the Sun, it does not mean that the phenomenon can be observed without special instruments. And in any case you should not look directly at the Sun, only through sunglasses or smoked glass.
