Once in a life time opportunity, to witness the total solar eclipse and from the best possible location and place in the world. #NASA.

Total Solar Eclipse occurs when the moon’s path is crossing the sun’s, casting a shadow on Earth. The Moon is an astronomical body that orbits planet Earth. Since it revolves round the earth, at some point of movement, it comes between the Sun and the Earth.

While studying Physics some of these things are seen on textbooks and at best simulated environment. Now it’s life and direct.

This is another evidence that some experiments take a life time to conclude.

On Monday August 21, 2017, millions of Americans waited at various locations eagerly to observe the total solar eclipse, as it crosses the continental United States. The last time it happened was in 1918.

This historic celestial event eclipse will enter the U.S. through Oregon State at about 1:15 p.m. ET, and move across 14 states and exits South Carolina shortly before 3 p.m. ET.
