SOLAR ECLIPSE WILL LOOK LIKE THE ‘DEATH STAR’
Jackie Faherty, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, spoke about the appearance of the partial eclipse.
“It is not going to look like your regular sun,” she said.
She compared to the look to that of the Death Star, the ship from Star Wars.
“From our perspective, it covers a lot of it. It covers enough of it that you end up with this effect that there will be a black dot with the rest of the sun shining around it, which ends up looking like a ring of fire,” she said.
