On Monday, August 21, 2017, every American state will have a view of a partial solar eclipse. Some from Salem, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, will be in the path to observe a total solar eclipse. This is the first time a total solar eclipse will cross the United States, coast-to-coast since 1918. Share your photos and videos of this spectacular event with NASA and each other!
WARNING: Never look or point your camera directly at the sun except during totality when the sun’s disk is completely shadowed by the moon.
NASA encourages you to upload pictures and videos of your eclipse events, artistic impressions, community outreach activities, etc. to this Flickr group or Instagram. Make sure you include your name or your club or organization’s name and a description of the image/video.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
