By The Associated Press Staff The moon will be the biggest danger to astronauts in space, NASA officials say, but even its moon is not immune.
The moon, unlike the Earth, is not a perfect sphere, so there’s still a chance for moon dust to enter the atmosphere, making it less safe than the Earth’s atmosphere.NASA officials have identified the moon’s two major moons as the two most likely to make it through a solar eclipse.
The first, Phobos, is thought to be less than 100 miles wide, making the first of four possible eclipses it will experience in 2024.
The second, Deimos, is about 100 miles long, making for a bigger moon and more danger.
But the first will be less dangerous.
Moon dust can make it difficult to get a clear view of the moon, making astronauts uncomfortable during the eclipse.
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun and becomes blocked by the sun.
It’s the same phenomenon seen during the winter solstice, when the sun comes up in the sky and the moon sets.

NASA said the moon was about 100 feet wide and the eclipse occurred in the middle of the night in the United States.
NASA says there is a slight chance that Deimo, Phos, and Deim may be blocked by Deim.
The moon’s shadow can make a partial shadow visible in the early evening.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory can be used to measure the amount of sunlight hitting the moon.
In total, NASA said it expects a total eclipse to happen between midnight and 6 a.m.
EDT (2100 GMT) in 2024, when it expects the moon to be 100 miles from the sun, about 5.7 million miles from Earth.
It says the moon will reach the moon in the evening.
