Galaxy Glow in the Dark Stars Perfect Purchase For This Years Solar Eclipse!

 

Galaxy Glow Stars is a new toy company founded in 2016 by a husband and wife duo. They both loved the simple vintage glow in the dark stars they enjoyed as children but wanted to add a little bit of astronomy to the mix. They added a visually stimulating constellation guide that is an excellent way to introduce astronomy and science to kids of all ages.

 

August 21st will be the first total eclipse to be visible only in the United States since the the country was founded in 1776. The entire U.S. will only see a partial eclipse but 35 counties in Tennessee will experience a total eclipse. Here are some tips on how to throw a watch party and make sure you are prepared!

 

1. Decide where to be- If you are in TN make sure your location is within the line of the eclipse and not a mile off. The eclipse also will pass directly over cities such as Salem, Ore.; Idaho Falls; Lincoln, Neb.; Kansas City; and Columbia and Charleston, S.C. Considering traveling places within a couple hours drive. Places within a one- or two-hour drive of the eclipse include Portland, Ore.; Boise; Cheyenne, Wyo.; Rapid City, S.D.; Omaha; Topeka; St. Louis; Louisville; Knoxville, Chattanooga, Tenn.; Atlanta; and Charlotte.

2. Check your location- NASA has a map to check: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/interactive_map/index.html

3. Book a hotel- If you are traveling go ahead a book a room now. This is a popular event and hotels will book up fast.

4. Get safety glasses- Never look directly at the Sun. It can cause ever damage or even blindness. Amazon.com has lots of options for glasses. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias&field-keywords=solar+eclipse+glasses&field-brand=teddy+shake You can also purchase special filters for telescopes.

5. Ask for the day off- Request to day off in advance to be sure you are awarded it. It falls on a Monday.

6. NASA EDGE Megacast- NASA EDGE will join forces with the NASA Heliophysics Education Consortium, the University of Southern Illinois Carbondale, and Lunt Solar Systems to air a 4-hour 30-minute live webcast of the total solar eclipse from outside Saluki Stadium at Southern Illinois University Carbondale in Illinois. The webcast will begin airing at 11:45 AM EDT (3:45 PM UTC). During course of the Megacast, NASA EDGE will be tracking the eclipse as it starts in Oregon and makes its way across the country ending in South Carolina.

7. Provide activities-

Eclipse: Using a Classroom Model to Explore the Moon’s Shadow(link is external)
This lesson provides students with a concrete model of the sun, Earth and moon and their interaction during a solar eclipse. Students observe and manipulate the 3-D model and simulate the movement of these bodies during an eclipse.
 

Eclipsing the sun(link is external)

Knowing that apparent positions of objects differ with different points of observation will help in estimating distances to the moon and sun. Finding distances by triangulation and scale drawings will help students to understand how the distances to the moon and sun were estimated and why the stars must be very much farther away.

 

Pinhole Camera: All the sun Through the Eye of a Pinhole(link is external)

This is an activity about observing the sun. Learners will construct a pinhole projector to project an image of the sun, observe and record the size of the projected image, and calculate the diameter of the sun using the measurements and a known distance to the sun. This activity is from the Touch the sun educator guide.

8. Decorate- Think astronomy themed décor! Hang Galaxy Glow in the dark stars on your patio, deck, or in tents! Fill mason jars with the glow in dark stars and place around walkways for a lighted path or on tables for mood lighting. Outdoor string lights are a must! Get space themed tablescapes.

9. Food- Think moon pies, sun dried goods, and star shaped anything!
