It is not too early to begin preparing for the Great American Solar Eclipse of Aug. 21, 2017 — and the sun's position on April 19, 20 and 21, but especially April 20, will offer a perfect dress rehearsal for that historic event.

When preparing for the eclipse, an important aspect to consider is the sun's location in the sky for your location. Across the western third of the United States, the eclipse will reach its peak during the late morning hours. Over the nation's midsection, the maximum eclipse will come at midday, and for the eastern third of the country, the time of greatest coverage of the sun by the moon will happen in early to mid-afternoon.

Will tall trees or nearby buildings block your view of the sun at the critical moment? You can get a very good idea of where the sun will be in the sky during the eclipse by noting its position on April 19, 20 and 21.

During these three days, the sun will track across the sky along a path that will be very similar to the path it will take on the actual eclipse day, Aug. 21. In fact, the path that the sun will take on Friday, April 21 will virtually match its track on the day of the eclipse. The declination of the sun — its angular distance north of the celestial equator — will be equal to 11.73 degrees on April 20, compared to 11.87 degrees on Aug. 21, a difference of just 0.14 of a degree.

On April 20, the sun will be less than a half degree (equal to its apparent width) to the south of its path on eclipse day, while on April 21, it will be a similar distance to the north of its Aug. 21 position.

  Fox News Is Preparing to Cut Ties with Bill O'Reilly Fox News is preparing to cut ties with its biggest star, Bill O’Reilly, according to people close to the situation. A final decision on Mr. O’Reilly’s fate could come as early as the next several days, the people said. Mr. O’Reilly, host of “The O’Reilly Factor,” has been ensnared in a sexual-harassment scandal related to previously undisclosed settlements he and Fox News paid to women who worked on or appeared on his program.

The only other significant difference is that the sun will arrive at its eclipse-day position about 4 minutes earlier on the three April dates compared to Aug. 21. The reason for this difference is related to what is known as the "equation of time," which is a way of quantifying the variable part of the difference between time kept by an ordinary electrical or mechanical clock and the time kept by the sun, such as what a sundial would read.

Put in simple terms, in late April, the sun appears to cross the meridian about 4 minutes earlier than it does in late August.

Below, you'll find a table for 20 selected cities. In the first column is the location. In the second column is the local time for the peak of the eclipse on Aug. 21. In the third column is the obscuration value — the maximum total area of the sun's disk that will be covered — expressed as a percentage for the places where observers will witness a partial eclipse. For a total eclipse, a value of 100 percent (in bold type) is assigned.

Now, if you want to get a good idea of where the sun will be in the sky on Aug. 21 at the time of maximum eclipse, consult the table and subtract 4 minutes from the time provided in column 2. On April 19, 20 and 21, step outside at that moment and look skyward; that is where the sun will be on Aug. 21 at the peak of the eclipse. (Do not look directly at the sun without appropriate eye protection.)

That’s especially since some scientists believe many potentially habitable exoplanets are entirely submerged in water — we would need to go for a scuba dive to find anything alive out there.
