Revealed: There Will Be A Solar Eclipse This Month Of March And An Asteroid Is Going To Come *Thisclose* To Earth


On March 8th, our planet will experience a cosmic double-whammy of a total solar eclipse AND a 100-foot-wide asteroid flying by the Earth.


The total solar eclipse of March 2016 is the only total eclipse of the sun this year. 
It’s our first eclipse since 2015, and this time the moon’s shadow will travel across the Earth late Tuesday (March 8) and early Wednesday (March 9). Scientists at Space explain that the odd timeline is due to the international dateline: The eclipse starts in Indonesia early Wednesday, but moves east across the Pacific, so it will still be Tuesday for the last third of the eclipse. It’s kind of like time travel, which is fitting.

If you’re planning on watching the eclipse in person, remember: Never, ever look directly at the sun, even through a telescope. Instead, you’ll need eclipse-viewing glasses or, for some DIY fun, build a pinhole projector. 

If you don’t live in the right geographical location to see the solar eclipse, you can watch the process live in a webcast hosted by the Slooh Community Observatory  starting March 8 at 6 p.m. EST, and running  until 9 p.m. EST.
