A NASA Observatory Just Saw a Total Solar Eclipse

The eclipse wasn't visible from our vantage point here on Earth. NASA advises it is never safe to look directly at a solar eclipse, whether it is a partial or total lunar eclipse.

Even though the eclipse is partial, you'll still want to use protective measures because it is risky to look directly into the sun.

"SDO's eclipse season is a three-week period that comes twice a year near the equinoxes, during which Earth blocks SDO's view of the sun for a short while each day", NASA officials wrote in a description of the new imagery, which was released Tuesday (Feb. 13).

I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things - I'm like, 'Jesus didn't say that.' Scary". On the 12th of February, Manigault dished on Donald Trump and Mike Pence on the CBS reality show.

What will we see during the partial solar eclipse?

Space.com says the eclipse's path will begin over Antarctica, then move up and over Southern America, with a maximum magnitude of 0.599.

The eclipse will also be be visible in parts of the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and Antarctica. India would however not be able to see the solar eclipse that would take place tomorrow and also the one on August 11, 2018.

Scientists discover new antibiotic family in soil
The researchers named the new antibiotic Malacidin as a short form of metagenomic acidic lipopeptide antibiotic-cidins. They hypothesized that the genes responsible for this "calcium-dependent motif" might be found in other compounds.

The eclipse will begin on February 15 at 6:55 pm and will reach its maximum at 8:51 pm and the last location to see the partial eclipse would be at 10:47 pm. This is called a transit, basically the same thing as an eclipse, but more broadly, a transit occurs simply when one object in space passes in front of another object in space, according to NASA. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon covers the sun entirely and momentarily dims some areas on our planet, leaving it in darkness. Here the sun, moon and the earth do not line up in a perfectly straight line. This includes two big cities, Buenos Aries and Montevideo. Protective eclipse glasses are the best protection from the sun, or else you might risk damage to your eyes.

But SDO will be seeing a lot more eclipses over the next few weeks, because the probe has now entered "eclipse season".

Another partial eclipse, this one will be visible from northern and eastern Europe, northern parts of North America, and some northern and western locations in Asia. But don't expect to see much.

The game might be up as Instagram Stories tests screenshot notifications
Numerous introduced "new features" are of no use or kills the actual purposes Snapchat had been used for the past years. The petition aims to convince the company to revert the app to the 2017 version before this update.

Partial solar eclipses tend to occur every six months or so, however a total solar eclipse is a rare celestial event. "Even there it's going to be a really thin, not really noticeable", Wright said.
