The Rare Natural Phenomenon In Nevada That Will Go Down In History

On August 21, millions of people across the U.S. will see a truly rare natural phenomenon: a total eclipse of the sun. During a solar eclipse, the Earth, moon, and sun are perfectly aligned, and the moon blocks the sun completely so all that is visible is the sun’s corona which causes the daytime sky to resemble twilight. Even though Nevada isn’t in the direct path of this awesome rare natural phenomenon, parts of the state will be able to see a partial solar eclipse. Read on to learn about this amazing and wondrous event.

For an interesting animated representation of the upcoming eclipse, take a look at this amazing video by GIS professional, long-time eclipse chaser, and operator of Michael Zeiler.
