Everyone will be looking up on Monday, Aug. 21, when what’s being called the Great American Eclipse sweeps across the U.S.
“I really encourage you to be in a place where you can see the total solar eclipse,” says
Bill Nye, known as the Science Guy from his popular 1990s-era PBS kids’ show. “This one moment where the Earth, moon and sun are in a line—it really is spectacular,” says Nye, 61, who serves as the CEO of the Planetary Society in Pasadena, Calif., and is star of Bill Nye Saves the
World on Netflix. Check out these eclipse must-knows from Nye and astronomy whiz kids Cannan and Carson Huey-You.
