It’s Here: Live Feed of the Eclipse From NASA
It’s finally here! Today is the day. I’ve got my computer and my phone both cued up to watch the live stream from NASA: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/eclipse-live-stream.
This has been a fun week as we’ve been counting down the days to the eclipse. What a great STEM project for our 4-H’ers! Science, Engineering, Technology, and Math, or STEM as we often call them, is one of the major vehicles we use in 4-H to teach our youth life skills that will help them become caring, competent, and contributing citizens today and in the future. It’s just one of the many things I love about my job! Today, thanks to awesome support from Teachers and Administrators in our county, youth from Pre-K to 12th grade are doing activities that focus on the solar eclipse at some point in their day. I’m grateful to have been asked by many teachers to be a part of that. I hope that each of you will take a little bit of time to join us in observing this “outta this world” phenomenon.
Don’t forget – do not look directly at the sun during the eclipse. Also, it’s not safe to look through binoculars, cameras, or any magnifying device without proper protective equipment in place.
