Be sure to see the moon moving between the Earth and the Sun August 21, 2017

 

Imagine a bright sunny day, with turquoise skies and the brilliant sunshine we all enjoy. Gradually, the illumination around you diminishes; It takes some time before you notice. If you had not heard about the eclipse you might think a cloud temporarily blocked the Sun. Then it happens.

The Moon has fully engulfed the Sun.

For the next minute or so, your eyes are drawn up to behold in the middle of the day, a small black circle surrounded by a fire-like glow (the Sun’s corona). The sky itself has darkened so much it is like deep twilight.
