CATE, the Continental American Telescope Eclipse, is an experiment more than two years in the making.
The US has solar-eclipse fever. "We'll come around one more time and from the station side we'll see about an 85 percent eclipse of the sun looking up (at 4:17pm)".
An eclipse does not happen often.
"I actually saw an eclipse when I was young and I was told then and I still believe now there's damage that can be done to your eyes", said Shaw. The telescopes will be manned by trained volunteers and scientists and the data uploaded will greatly benefit researchers.
For generations of Americans, the chance to see a total eclipse anywhere near home has never happened. This is the first total solar eclipse in the lower 48 states since 1979 and the first coast-to-coast eclipse since 1918.
The moon passes between Earth and the sun once a month, but on a plane that is about 5 degrees askew from the plane on which the Earth orbits the sun.
