1 00:00:00,010 --> 00:00:04,040 Male Voice: There it is! Here it comes! There is a diamond ring again! 2 00:00:04,060 --> 00:00:08,150 Sarah: During a solar eclipse, the moon is so 3 00:00:08,170 --> 00:00:12,330 big and far away, it has a very sharp edge, so it blocks out 4 00:00:12,350 --> 00:00:16,340 the sunlight from the disc 5 00:00:16,360 --> 00:00:20,410 of the sun very, very precisely 6 00:00:20,430 --> 00:00:24,440 It allows the very faint light from the corona down to Earth, 7 00:00:24,460 --> 00:00:28,530 so we can see it. 8 00:00:28,550 --> 00:00:32,710 Nat: You can connect what is going on in a space coronagraph to what is going on very close to the sun. That means you can see 9 00:00:32,730 --> 00:00:36,730 the birth place of mass ejections with the 10 00:00:36,750 --> 00:00:40,770 eclipse. On the other hand with a coronagraph 11 00:00:40,790 --> 00:00:44,820 you can see it only after it has left the, you know, 12 00:00:44,840 --> 00:00:48,900 early part of the corona. 13 00:00:48,920 --> 00:00:52,960 Sarah: This eclipse coming up is a little shorter. Everyone is getting their instruments 14 00:00:52,980 --> 00:00:57,000 ready for 2017 can sort of test them out. 15 00:00:57,020 --> 00:01:01,110 Nelson: And if you can design an experiment that you can do it 16 00:01:01,130 --> 00:01:05,110 within that 3 minutes, that's the best thing. 17 00:01:05,130 --> 00:01:09,170 Eric: Anybody can get involved. You can watch the webcast. We will describing what we are seeing and a lot of 18 00:01:09,190 --> 00:01:13,180 setup, and have telescopes that actually show, even though 19 00:01:13,200 --> 00:01:17,230 we are going to be in the Pacific. Also, you know, as you learn about this, getting ready for 20 00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:21,280 the 2017 eclipse. This is really a prelude for what's going to be 21 00:01:21,300 --> 00:01:25,360 a phenomenal 2017 eclipse. 22 00:01:25,380 --> 00:01:29,410 Cheering 23 00:01:29,430 --> 00:01:33,420 Tone 24 00:01:33,440 --> 00:01:36,243 Beeping
