Next August 21, one of the most amazing cosmic events that man could ever witness will take place in the United States. A total solar eclipse will cover both coasts of the country, directly visible to 120 million people throughout all of North America.
A natural event like this hasn’t been recorded since 1918. It’s estimated that the radius of the shadow projected by the moon will be between 68 to 80 miles and will last for at least two hours.
Scientific and federal authorities are prepared to measure the phenomenon in order to guarantee security in the country during these unexpected hours of darkness.
At least 50 stratospheric balloons will be deployed and a fleet of 11 airplanes for the transmission. In fact, it will be one of the most anticipated scientific events of the year for the United States.
