North America will be treated to a total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. It’s the first time in nearly 100 years this has happened.
Unfortunately, due to our location on the southern tip of Africa, we won’t be able to view it, but thanks to the internet, we’ll be able to watch in live online.
After the event, we’ll also be treated to various photographs provided by 11 spacecraft, more than 50 high altitude balloons and the inhabitants of the International Space Station. These images will be provided by NASA.
The full event can also be viewed on YouTube below.
