Our good friends at NASA told everyone that there’s going to be a solar eclipse today, You have probably heard that there’s a solar eclipse today from that one friend who wont shut up about space and might be thinking ” Hey that is a pretty cool thing, how do I view this awesome celestial event?”. Well, here at The Edge we like to ensure our listeners have the hottest info about everything ever, so we’ve compiled a list of everything you need to know.
WHAT IS A SOLAR ECLIPSE: The Moon orbits the Earth once a month, and eclipses happen if it lines up exactly with the Earth and the Sun. Solar eclipses occur at New Moon, when the Moon is between Earth and the Sun. … Eclipses do not take place every month because the Earth and Moon are orbiting on a tilted axis.
Twitter, and most of the world seem to have put the hype train in to maximum overdrive, because everyone seems excited for this super radical celestial event
