The heart sits within a fluid-filled cavity called the pericardial cavity. The walls and lining of the pericardial cavity are a special membrane known as the pericardium. Pericardium is a type of serous membrane that produces serous fluid to lubricate the heart and prevent friction between the ever beating heart and its surrounding organs. Besides lubrication, the pericardium serves to hold the heart in position and maintain a hollow space for the heart to expand into when it is full. The pericardium has 2 layers — a visceral layer that covers the outside of the heart and a parietal layer that forms a sac around the outside of the pericardial cavity.
Well, that's 'cause you were in the wrong place. If you saw the moon go over the top side of the sun, then you were too far south. If it skirted the bottom part of the sun, then you should've been farther south. People there got the show, and you didn't. And there's no TIVO here, man - you missed it, and the moon ain't gonna back up and give you any do-overs. That's all she wrote for 2017, and it's a long swim to get to the next one.
Now, if you're just outside the path, like maybe less than 100 miles or so, then you will experience "deep" partiality. The moon will still track off-center, but at the time of maximum coverage, lots of the sun will end up being covered by it. Now, it's still not safe to look at without filters (!), but the deeper the partiality you get, the more of the "eclipse" effects you'll get to see. By that, we mean that you'll see (through filters) a very thin sliver of the sun - the closer you are to the path, the thinner the sliver you'll see. You'll also get to see the sky darken a bit, and if you're really close to the path, the overall eerieness of the quality of the light around you will deepen, and you'll get that weird feeling that the light isn't right, and that something very strange is going on around you. But, that's it. That's all you'll get, and like your friends who are still well outside the path, you'll also come away feeling like you got robbed.
Many people are familiar with closed captioning, the means by which the dialogue and sound effects of a film or television program are made visible via on-screen text. However, description, for viewers who are blind or have low vision, is less familiar. Description conveys the key visual aspects of a film or television program by describing scenery, facial expressions, costumes during natural pauses in dialogue. Listen to a clip of Disney's The Lion King with descriptive narration created by the The Media Access Group at WGBH. Because people who are deaf or hard of hearing have few opportunities to "experience" description, this clip also has closed captioning. The Lion King demonstration .
