Eclipse in Michigan: How and when to watch

During a total eclipse, the moon, sun and Earth are in a direct line. That means people watching from Portland will need to wear the glasses the entire time because the metro won't experience totality. The moon will cast its shadow on a narrow 60 to 70-mile-wide band stretching from OR on the northwest coast to SC on the southeast, blocking out sunlight for up to two minutes and 40 seconds in some locations.

"Solar Eclipse: Through the Eyes of NASA": NASA will offer hours of coverage online and on NASA Television beginning at noon Eastern.

The last total eclipse occurred in the United States in 1979, and businesses are cashing in on the pent-up enthusiasm for this extremely rare celestial event.

For numerous places hosting science events, the eclipse presents an opportunity to get people interested in science.

"A common misconception regarding solar eclipses is that it is safe to look at the sun during the event due to the diminished sunlight; however, this is not the case".

"One of the worries about this eclipse is eye safety", Craig said.

"Most of the year, it's just too close to the sun", meteorologist Paul Gross said.

The shortage of proper glasses has resulted in a number of unsafe fake eclipse glasses hitting the marker, warned Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

So how much do you know about the solar eclipse?

The eclipse glasses being distributed by Douglas County Public Libraries are being recalled.

He concluded: "If that had been a human eye there would nearly certainly be some pretty severe damage and that is why it is a very, VERY, bad idea to look at the sun through an eyepiece of a telescope". Here in Moscow, totality hovers near the 94 percent mark.

"Nobody should expect to see the corona in Amarillo or Canyon", Craig said.

Massive crowds are expected at viewing spots across America when the moon passes in front of the sun, blocking its light, the morning of August 21.

Paul is standing with his back to the sun in anticipation of the moon's shadow blocking the punched-out hole in the cardboard.

It also depends on whether you're talking about how often eclipses happen on Earth, in a given area like a country, or one particular spot like a city. They could be scientists who discovered more about the sun, or other planets in the solar system.

Right before totality you will see something called Bailey's Beads form.

The solar eclipse is fast approaching. Fienberg created the AAS list of verified eclipse glasses sellers and manufacturers. "If it is cloudy, it will get even darker" than if the skies were clear. "The main thing is to never look directly into it". Residents can bring lunch or buy one from Thumpers Grill. The festivities there are free with park admission. A bus might sound like great option, but be careful you don't make a reservation only to end up without transportation. Scammers may set up fake events or charge people for access to free public parties.

As with most outdoor activities this time of year in the Texas Panhandle, viewers will have to be mindful of the weather.

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City predicts mostly or partly sunny skies across north Georgia during the eclipse.

"It does look we could potentially have some high clouds in the area, maybe even some mid level clouds", Ward said. If you just want some great views, head to the party at Eagle Creek's Earth Discovery Center (5901 Delong Rd.) from 1 to 3 p.m.
