Welcome to the Astronomy page!

The top astronomy event 2017: Total Solar Eclipse, August 21
This year will be especially stunning for viewers in North America, as the sun will undergo the most amazing celestial disappearing act seen there since 1979. In August, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States from coast to coast, changing daytime skies into dark twilight for a few minutes along a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina.
Miss this one and you’ll have to wait until 2024 for the next total solar eclipse to grace North American skies.
