Fact #5: If any planets are in the sky at the time of a total solar eclipse, they can be seen as points of light
It’s Solar eclipse time in America, a fact I learnt by hearing audio of complete wonder during a podcast. Suffice to say I am completely jealous but if you are a space nerd like me, perhaps you can live vicariously through these beautifully designed posters by Dr. Tyler Nordgren: Artist – Astronomer – Night Sky Ambassador. I wish that was on my business card!
The posters designed by NASA show spots in America which got the best view of the eclipse. Isn’t it nice when beautiful design informs or answers questions? You can spot more of his work here.
