"Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse", said Sachin Bahmba, Chairman and Managing Director at Space Group, who is leading the team from India for the expedition.
Unfortunately, because the human eye still sees the world as, "sunny", even if the majority of the sun is blocked by the moon, we'll miss the show if it's overcast in Houston, or in any location across the majority of the country.
The last total solar eclipse in the continental United States was on the morning of February 26, 1979.
To safely view the eclipse, pick up ISO certified eclipse glasses.
Science Central's event Sunday will show people how to experience the solar eclipse safely during hands-on activities and demonstrations, the science center said on its website, www.sciencecentral.org. After that, there won't be another occurrence until August 12, 2045, according to a news release.
With a week left until Oregon's anticipated total solar eclipse, Amazon has issued a recall for some eclipse glasses the retail giant says might not have come from a recommended manufacturer. This ever-changing region grows and shrinks based on solar conditions، and researchers will use the eclipse as a ready-made experiment.

Always supervise children using solar filters.
Staring at the sun can damage an eye's retina, causing temporary or even permanent damage.
Get help from an astronomer before using a solar filter with a camera, telescope or other optical device. Transportation officials in Georgia warned people to make sure they have enough gasoline, especially if they're traveling to the northern part of the state, which will have a good view of the eclipse, so that no one becomes an "eclipse refugee".
