1.) Sometimes while the moon is orbiting the Earth as usual, it passes between the sun and Earth. When the moon passes between the sun and Earth it blocks all the sunlight that the sun gives us. (Here on Earth.) When an eclipse happens is makes a shadow on the Earth.
2.) Then next solar eclipse that will happen after August 21, 2017, is in April 8, 2024.
3.)Total eclipse only happen once every hungered years. In some places of the Earth, solar eclipses can happen a couple of years apart.
4.) In total there are four different types of eclipses.
5.) In 2024 Indiana will have a total eclipse.
6.) The dangers of looking at the sun during a solar eclipse without proper eye ware are that you could severely damage you're eye and you could even go blind.
7.)The safety measures are that you should wear eclipse glasses which are specially made to view solar eclipses. Regular sun glasses are NOT safe to use if you want to view a solar eclipse. Always check your eclipse glasses to make sure they are not scratched or broken. If they are then you should not use them. DON'T look at the eclipse with a camera, phone, telescope, or binoculars.
8.) The music connection you can make is that there aren't many songs about solar eclipses. Just like solar eclipses don't happen very often, there are also not many songs. They are both rare. There are a few songs and these help you listen to the rare thing that doesn't happen often.
9.) Another connection is that solar eclipses bring " change ." Not a lot of people like change, but solar eclipses don't happen every day. This could change your life. Maybe someday when you're older you will be able to tell your grandchild that you actually saw something that was watched WORLD WIDE. That you saw something that happened in history.
10A.) I chose this because I have a dog and one day i heard on the news about this. That animals get confused because since the moon covers the sun it makes it darker, so animals think its night time. I just thought that this was really cool.
