The next astronomical event on the horizon is a full solar eclipse. Everyone in North America, parts of South America, Europe, and Africa will get to see at least a partial eclipse. People in 14 U.S. states will have a chance to see totality.
This event will happen on Monday August 21st. Plan ahead. Please remember that you must protect your eyes during a solar eclipse. Nasa has great information about what to look for, when and how.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so you may want to record your observation. If so, pick up my bestselling sky watching journal.
