Have any of you heard about how there will be a total solar eclipse for portions of the US on August 21st, 2017? NASA has a nice page set up just for this solar eclipse: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety

This eclipse should be visible in England, but I'm not sure about Sweden. For me, I live in New York, so I'll be able to view this eclipse for 2-3 hours.

    Only if you look at the Sun directly with no eclipse glasses on, or even worse, try to film the solar eclipse without a special camera filter.

    We should add the rise of idiots like Jake and Logan Paul on YouTube to that list...

    Didn't realise there would be an eclipse on the 21st, one day after I start college.

    I will see if it can be seen in Sweden. We will probably get more information about it when it do happen.

    I have already seen 1 solar eclipse ("solförmörkelse" in Sweden) 2015 and that is probably good enough. At that time, you could at least see 10-20% of the sun covered by the moon which isn't too bad.

    I know this is completely unrelated but this is the video SVT (Swedish Television) uses to show when sunset and sunrise happens.
