We get a preview of this month's total solar eclipse with a team of N.H. astronomers.  Although New Hampshire won't be in the "zone of totality," find out how to safely watch as the moon blocks out nearly 62% percent of the sun's light in N.H. on August 21.  The moon will being moving in front of the sun around 1:30pm, with peak coverage around 2:45pm.  In other astronomical news, we take a look back at 40 years of space exploration with  NASA's Voyager mission, the Curiosity Rover, and what Cassini has learned before it is deliberately crashed into Saturn.

If you see a family of turkeys crossing the road, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department would like to know. As the summer winds down and young turkeys begin to mature, wildlife officials are reminding residents about their annual citizen science turkey count.
