Dear Lifehacker, for the past few months my social media feed has been filled with news about the Great American Solar Eclipse. After all the hype, I'm pretty pissed off that Australia missed out. I want to make sure I don't miss the next solar eclipse in Australia. My question is simple: When is it and will I be able to see it from Sydney?
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
There's a total solar eclipse happening on August 21, 2017. Unfortunately, the Moon's unabashed Sun-blocking power will only be visible from the continental US and will only be visible in other countries as a partial eclipse. Fortunately, these streams mean you can enjoy the full extent of this celestial event from Australia.
You've probably seen a bunch of headlines about a total solar eclipse coming on August 21. It is set to be one of the most spectacular celestial displays of the past century. Unfortunately, everyone in the Southern Hemisphere - including Australians - won't be treated to a darkening of the sun. At all.
