will catch it The 50milewide shadow is the wake trailed by total eclipse Because the shadow sweeps across the Earth at 1660 to 2800 mph the airplanes must lose the race However scientists aboard the planes still can expect up to five extra minutes of observation time Astronomical odds indicate that professor Charles H Smiley of Brown University can remain longer in the path of totality than any of his coi leagues For Prof Smiley will do his shadowing in a Lockheed F104 jet fighter one of the fastest in the air force stable Flying at 48000 feet and up to 1200 mph Dr Smiley intends to study two solar features that defy careful examination except during times of total eclipse One is the suns outer corona or shell which consists of faint white streamers that dart out from the solar sphere The other is the eerie zodiacal light the faint glow that extends far into space and apparently is caused by sunlight bouncing off a planetary dust cloud that orbits the sun Standing at the proper point in the moon shadow an earthbound observer could observe the eclipse for up to 100 seconds Dr Smiley bjt con trast may remain inside the shadow for about five minutes as his starfighter plane travels nearly double the speed of sound By staring for more than a second or two even though theres no discomfort spectators are risking permanent eye damage Invisible ultraviolet rays especially harmful to the eyes of children radiate constantly from the sun at all times eclipse or no Experts caution that the phenomenon should not be viewed by the human eye no matter what instruments are used to view through The best of all possible spots to watch the July 20 eclipse is near the Great Slave Lake north of Win nipeg Canada On both coasts of the North American continent two U S airlines are sponsoring somewhat similar adventures Carrying a loadof scientists from New Yorks Hayden planetarium and Bostons Smithsonian As trophysical Observatory an American Airlines 990 Astrojet will race the lunar shadow over Maine Shadow chasing is an old sport with American pilots The airline has flown two earlier expeditions in 1954 over Ontario and in 1959 over Maine Pan American world airways also has tentative plans to divert a jet flight between Seattle and Fair banks Alaska so that those on board can view the eclipse W Martial l Cambridg ROM OCR WIRE SERVICES CAMBRIDGE Mel Martial aw was
