August 21, US residents will be able to see a total solar eclipse

American astronomers have warned of a total solar eclipse, which will occur on August 21.

The last time such an event was recorded in 1918, reports Nation News.

It is noted that the Moon, passing between the Sun and the Earth, will block the sunlight for 1.5 hours.

Scientists said that the followers of this event will be able to see two types of shadows: small (“dies”), due to which it will be possible to observe a solar eclipse, and penumbra, which will allow to see the natural phenomenon only partially.
