WASHINGTON, D. C., Aug. 20.? (

Lai in psrt of Europe and Asia and
irtial in northeastern America?has
tracted the widespread attention of |
tronomers and scientists. Various i
ipeditlons having been arranged to i
Itness this phenomena. In view ot i
e public interest in the event, Prof, i
G. Abbott, head of ths astronomical i
anch of the Smithsonian Institntion, j
id a recognized authority on solar i
lenomena, gives the following pop- i
ar account of the eclipse, and the j
ientlflc results sought from such i
On August 21, 1914 the moon will 1
tss exactly between the earth and the ]
m, and there will be a total solar
lipse. It will not be observed in
merlca, except as a small partial t
lipse at sunrise in the . northern i
ates and Canada, but in Persia, Rua- ;

Although the moon'looks about the ;

nailer and nearer. ?he sun is 865,- '
>0 miles in diameter and 93,000,000
lies away, while the moon is 2,163
lies in diameter and 239,000 miles
vay. On account of. the moon's small
ze compared with the sun the shadv
cast by the moon is a cone, and
a- point of this cone just barely
aches the earth.
In this eclipse the diameter ot the
ine at the earth's surface Is only
>out eighty-five miles, so that the
illpse is visible as total only in a
lit about eighty-five miles wide

ide. area, Including northeastern
merlca, Greenland, Europe, half of
sia and half of America. Within
Is region only a portion of the sun's
sk will be hidden by the moon.
Sky Becomes Dark.
Wherever the solar eclipse is seen

There sflll be total eclipses visible
in the United States on June 8, 1918,
September 10, 1933 and January 24,
As the glare of the sun In the sky
Is removed, and yet the moon hardly
nore than covers the sun, It Is possible
at times of total solar eclipse to
see all the celestial objects near the
sun. These can not be seen at other
Limes because they are lost In the
bright sky light. It is this whichmakes
astronomers so eager to observe
total eclipses. The most striking
thing seen is the solar corona, a
beautiful pearly light stretching away
from the sun In ajl directions, something
like the Aurora Borealls seen
in northern countries.
The corona extends from one to
three solar diameters away from the
sun. Its form changes from year to
rear In connection with the number
of sun-spots which, prevail. As the
present year will be one of comparatively
few sun-spots the corona is expected
to have short but well marked
polar rays and long equatorial streamers.
In 1918 a total eclipse will be
visible in the United States, and as
the sun-spots will then be numerous
the corona will probably extend nearly
equally in all directions.
Formerly It was believed probable
that one or more planets of .the solar
system exist nearer the sun than Mercury,
and It was hoped to discover
these during total solar eclipses. But
the sky has bpen so carefully searched
that no such objects large enough lo
be worth counting exist.
Taloe Has Diminished.
Formerly also It was regarded as
necessary to wait for eclipses and to
Bee and study the beautiful rbBy
Dames of hydrogen and other gases,
called prominences, which surround
the sun: But these may now be observed
at any time by means of a
special apparatus. While value of
total eclipses has therefore somewhat
diminished, there still remain many
Btudles which are conOned to them.
Astronomers make very careful
preparations, and rehearse all details
of their programs lest some of the
precious time should be wasted. They
observe with the eye gnd the photographic
plate to determine the exact
times of totality and the form and
extension of the corona. They photograph
the spectrum of the corona,
and also that of the bright colored
rinz of lleht which Hod ft* Vooo
Just on the edge of the sun. They
measure the brightness of the sky and
of the corona, and make many other
observations useful In learning about
the nature of the sun.
