The world is inching closer to the century’s first total solar eclipse on 21st August. While the entire world is going gaga over this approaching celestial event, scientists and astronomers globally are keenly waiting to gather more and more information about the celestial event, the relationship between sun and earth and other related factors. As expected by most of the space experts including NASA, this month’s total solar eclipse will reveal major cosmic secrets to the world.
Among these experts, one is Shadia Habbal, a professor and an astronomer at the University of Hawaii, who took a trip in 2012 to various parts of the globe for witnessing this rare celestial phenomenon and learning more from it. However, due to the cloud, the stunning views of the Total solar eclipse, the emissions of jets of hot gas, and the disappeared solar disk was not visible in the pictures of Habbal. But this time, the professor is expected to get some spectacular views of the total solar eclipse, which is going to cast its shadow on the United States on 21st August.
As told by Professor Habbal, “We are hoping such roadblocks not to happen in 2017.” Habbal, in an interview to Space.com, also indicated that the total solar eclipse which will only be visible to the U.S., along with a trail elongating from Oregon to South Carolina, 21st August will be easily visible for various regions of the United States.
According to Habbal,
Every solar eclipse or even just an image of an eclipse gives us new information and discoveries about the sun and its relationship with Earth. Even if you have only a few minutes or a few seconds of the totality, you easily can get something new from it.
This year’s solar eclipse is expected to be the best campaign of Habbal, and she is also highly optimistic to gain some new and revolutionary information from this rare event. As confirmed by Habbal, by pooling resources with NASA, she and a team of astronomers have planned to capture some spectacular images of the total solar eclipse from five dissimilar locations all through the United States U.S. By clicking pictures, they will gather data will assist them to understand why the corona of Sun crops up to such high temperatures.
