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.
