The Moon and the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
On April 8th, 2024, parts of the United States, Mexico and Canada will get to experience a total solar eclipse. This video tutorial takes a look at this unique event and explains what role the Moon plays in creating it. The video explains how the two parts of the Moon’s shadow, the umbra and penumbra, affect how we see a solar eclipse on Earth, and where the path of totality for the 2024 eclipse resides. In addition, this video highlights how data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter helps us more accurately depict the shape of the umbra when creating eclipse maps.
