Eclipse: The Path of Totality: Angular Size | NASA CONNECT

This program draws its content from the Science Mission Directorate’s Sun-Earth Forum. Students will learn about the natural phenomenon that creates a total eclipse and the relative movement of objects in our solar system.  Students also will explore the history, mythology, and current science surrounding these amazing events. Using hands-on lessons, web-based activities, and simple tools, students will measure and approximate the angular size and distance of objects in the sky.
