Solar Eclipse LIVE: On Monday, April 8, 2024, North America is witnessing a total solar eclipse—a rare event not seen in the United States for seven years and not expected to recur for another two decades, according to astronomers. Millions are looking up to the sky on April 8 to witness the alignment of the sun, moon, and Earth, either partially or fully, depending on their location. The 115-mile-wide (185 kilometers) path of totality will cross three states in Mexico, 15 U.S. states and four states in southeast Canada....Read More

What Is a Total Solar Eclipse?

- "It’s an alignment of the sun, the moon, and the earth in such a way that the moon passes directly between the sun and the Earth, blocking the sun's rays from reaching the Earth's surface,” says Noah Petro, an Artemis III project scientist at NASA.

- If you’re in the path of totality, then you will see the moon completely cover the sun.

- Outside of the main path? You may still see a partial eclipse, where the moon covers a slice of the sun.

Solar Eclipse LIVE Updates: NASA to perform experiments during the Total Solar Eclipse

As the world eagerly anticipates the upcoming total solar eclipse, NASA has invested in five groundbreaking research projects to deepen our understanding of the Sun's influence on Earth and life as we know it.

 Chasing the Eclipse from the Sky: A team from the Southwest Research Institute is embarking on a unique journey to chase the eclipse using NASA's high-altitude research planes. These aircraft will capture high-resolution images of the eclipse, focusing particularly on studying dust or asteroids that may be in orbit around our star. Alongside, the planes will be equipped with instruments from the University of Hawaii-led team to explore the mysteries of the sun's corona and coronal mass ejections. 

Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation: In a collaborative effort led by the University of Scranton, ham radio operators across the nation are invited to partake in an intriguing experiment. They will send and receive signals before, during, and after the eclipse, recording the strength and distance of their communications. The goal is to examine the eclipse's impact on the ionosphere, a crucial layer of Earth's upper atmosphere vital for radio communications and navigational systems. 

SuperDARN: Studying Solar Radiation and Space Weather Researchers from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University are utilizing the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) to delve into how solar radiation affects the ionosphere. This investigation aims to provide valuable insights into space weather and its potential impacts on Earth. 

GAVRT Solar Patrol: Monitoring Solar Radio Emissions Scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Lewis Center for Education Research will employ the Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope for the GAVRT Solar Patrol project. Their objective is to measure subtle changes in solar radio emissions as the Moon moves across active regions of the Sun, shedding light on solar dynamics. 

Atmospheric Perturbations along the Eclipse Path: A team led by a University in Daytona Beach plans to launch a series of three rockets from eastern Virginia before, during, and after the eclipse. These rockets will measure changes in electric, magnetic, temperature, and density parameters in Earth's upper atmosphere, offering a comprehensive view of atmospheric perturbations during the celestial event. 

Citizen Science Initiatives In addition to these research projects, NASA has funded three extensive citizen science investigations. These will be executed by hundreds of volunteers nationwide, emphasizing the collaborative spirit of scientific exploration. 

Why It Matters:: These experiments are not just academic exercises. Understanding the Sun's influence on our planet is crucial for a variety of reasons, from safeguarding our technological infrastructure to gaining insights into the broader celestial processes that shape our solar system. As the countdown to the total solar eclipse begins, NASA's research endeavors promise to offer a wealth of new knowledge and discoveries, enriching our understanding of the intricate relationship between the Sun and Earth.

Solar Eclipse LIVE Updates: How to take great pictures as moon completely covers the sun?

Since it's Eclipse Day today, millions across the US, Mexico, and Canada are awaiting the brief period of totality when the moon completely covers the sun. As the sky turns into a faux twilight during the rare celestial event, the most natural thing to do is take a picture!

NOTE: You should never look at the sun through an optical device, even if you are wearing eclipse glasses, as the resulting eye damage could be permanent, NASA says. Hence, make sure to use a safe solar filter.

Here are some tips to take great eclipse photos:

Use a tripod—When taking pictures of celestial bodies like the sun and the moon, it is important to ensure you are steady enough for your device to focus on the subject effectively. A tripod comes in handy at times like these, especially when you are recording a video or even making a timelapse of the eclipse. Even if you don't have a tripod, you can DIY a phone or camera stand.

Switch to manual or Pro mode- While it is easier to take clearer photos during the period of totality, it is harder for your device to focus during the partial phases. Thus, by using manual mode instead of automatic, your device will find it easier to focus on the subject, says Stan Honda, an experienced astrophotographer, per CNN.

How to capture the period of totality? 

Honda adds that if you are in the path of totality, you can take off the solar filter during the brief period of totality. And when you do that, you can capture the sun's corona, which Honda dubs as the “money shot.” 

He adds that after removing the filter, you should increase the exposure, slow down the shutter speed, and keep the ISO fixed. “That will give you more and more exposure as you increase the time of the shutter speed, and you’ll catch more and more of the corona on each frame,” Honda added.

Solar Eclipse LIVE Updates: AirBnB sees 92% surge in bookings along path of totality; prices surge 

The business impact of total solar eclipse is already evident. Starting over the Pacific Ocean, crossing North America, and ending in the Atlantic, the eclipse is creating a surge in demand for short-term rentals.

An astonishing 92% of listings within the zone of totality are booked for April 7th. Interestingly, the demand for homes just outside this roughly 180km-wide strip has remained relatively stable. The eclipse will be visible from several cities, including Dallas, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo, and Montreal. 

CoStar, a hotel-data provider, reports that hotel occupancy rates in these cities have surged, ranging from a 12-percentage-point increase in Montreal to a 67-point increase in Indianapolis. 

Despite the surge in demand, the path of the eclipse mainly covers areas with limited lodging options. Out of the 92,000 American short-term rental listings in this zone (just over 5% of the 1.6 million in the entire United States), a whopping 85,000 have been reserved for April 7th, compared to only 20,000 for the following Sunday. 

While owners of short-term rental properties could have increased their prices like hoteliers, they missed the opportunity. Airdna's data reveals that in cities like Dallas and Niagara Falls, the majority of reservations for April 6th, 7th, and 8th were made over two months ago, which is earlier than usual. Guests took advantage of the standard prices before hosts realized they could raise them and still secure bookings. 

The average booking for April 7th was $269, just slightly above the $245 for April 14th. With 65,000 additional bookings and a 10% increase in the nightly rate, Airbnb and Vrbo hosts are expected to see a revenue increase of only $18 million. Including the days before and after the peak demand, when occupancy rates also exceeded 80%, the total additional turnover is estimated at $44 million.
