Sun, moon, earth line up perfectly in cosmos Aug 21

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida: It will be tough eclipsing this eclipse. The sun, moon and Earth will line up perfectly in the cosmos on August 21, turning day into night for a few wondrous minutes, its path crossing the US from sea to shining sea for the first time in nearly a century.

Never will a total solar eclipse be so heavily viewed and studied — or celebrated.

Eclipse Fests, StarFests, SolarFests, SolFests, Darkening of the SunFests, MoonshadowFests, EclipseCons, Eclipse Encounters and Star Parties are planned along the long but narrow path of totality, where the moon completely blots out the sun.

Vineyards, breweries, museums, parks, universities, stadiums — just about everybody is getting into the act.

The Astronomical League for amateur astronomers is holing up at Casper, Wyoming. Minor league baseball teams will halt play for “eclipse delays” in Salem, Oregon and elsewhere. By a cosmic quirk of the calendar, the Little Green Men Days Festival will be in full swing in Kelly, Kentucky, as will the American Atheists’ annual convention in North Charleston, South Carolina, according to a global media report.
