(Undated)  --  NASA plans to send two specially equipped jets airborne Monday to follow the path of the solar eclipse.  Scientists have retrofitted telescopes to the noses of two NASA research jets.  The jets tracking the eclipse will fly one behind the other 70 miles apart.  NASA says the jets will chase the moon's shadow on Earth as it passes along the diagonal eclipse track from Oregon to South Carolina.  Flying at 50-thousand feet, the jets will be high enough to give scientists quality, cloud-free footage without actually going into space and just low enough so pilots don't have to wear pressure suits.
