Path of Totality: Measuring Angular Size and Distance

examines the natural phenomena that create a total eclipse. NASA scientists and engineers introduce a satellite used to make artificial eclipses in order to learn about the sun's corona. Students measure the angular size and predict the angular distance of objects in the sky. (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)
