Just remember, it is 👏 never 👏 safe 👏 to look directly at the Sun! To observe the partial eclipse, you will need solar eclipse glasses or you can make a pinhole projector. Safety first! You can learn how to make a pinhole projector here. youtube.com/watch?v=NiT_KH…

What's your advice for making the best pinhole projector at home?

It's the first solar eclipse of 2022! A partial solar eclipse will pass over the southern tip of South America near sunset.

You can figure out if you are in the eclipse's path and find the best times for observing here: timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/… pic.twitter.com/nosMkYAfUv

And here’s the ISS transiting the sun earlier this month, although without the same quality scope. pic.twitter.com/SFYKVSYV5Q
Still awesome! Safely capturing images like these takes serious skill and planning. 🙌

Um... You didn't get the "I'm kidding vibe" even a little bit? I subscribe to you, but I am clueless enough to ask that question/ Hmmm....
It can be a little tricky to tell jokes from genuine misunderstanding sometimes. Our community includes people in all parts of the space fandom, so we try to clarify just in case.

Have you ever spotted the @Space_Station?

It’s not uncommon to see the ISS as a light moving across the sky just after sunset or before sunrise, when the Sun’s light reflects off it, but this view of the ISS transiting the Sun requires special equipment to catch. pic.twitter.com/PE5Pft0sOg

The sizes and positions of these images show the relative arrangement of each of JWST's instruments in the telescope’s focal plane. Their views are slightly offset from each other.

Congrats to the latest crew heading to the @Space_Station. #Crew4 is going to the orbiting laboratory, which plays an integral part in understanding the effects of long-duration spaceflight.

The experiments and stay of these astronauts are a vital step for #Artemis.
