Today we heard from both teachers and students. Teachers shared lessons they have planned using the All Stars website and all the astronomers stories. Students shared the research projects they have been working on. Both groups did a great job. I can’t wait to try some of the research projects myself and some of the lessons with my students. I have really enjoyed working with this group this summer.
- The Eclipse 2017 Umbra Viewed from Space
As millions of people across the United States experienced a total eclipse as the umbra, or moon’s shadow passed over them, only six people witnessed the umbra from space. The space station crossed the path of the eclipse three times as it orbited above the continental United States at an altitude of 250 miles.
