View the Solar Eclipse from Quincy Hill

People watch a partial eclipse in Belfast Northern Ireland

The city of Carbondale (USA) will be unique - there will be two total solar eclipses within seven years - in 2017 and 2024.

Remember, you can not substitute sunglasses for solar viewing glasses and if you look directly at the eclipse with your naked eyes, you may cause serious eye damage.

"The last time we had a huge eclipse type of event, people took out their cameras to take pictures of the eclipse". The deepest part of the eclipse will be at 2:25 p.m. when just shy of 90 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon.

With all the excitement about the Great American total solar eclipse expected to happen in just a few short weeks, it is important to remember that even our pets are going to experience the rare celestial event as well. It's one thing to sell T-shirts with logos that you don't have permission to use - nobody really gets hurt. A solar eclipse produces ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation from the sun which could burn the retina and lead to blindness.

The sight is "pretty wonderful", he said, although Munson will be camping somewhere in rural OR in the path of totality on the day of the event, too. Utah will finally be in the path of a total solar eclipse-in 2045. The temperature starts dropping. Most parts of the USA will witness a partial solar eclipse.

"It blocks out nearly all of the light, especially the ultraviolets and the high-energy wavelengths that are damaging to the eye", he said.

The Mayborn Science Theater will host a special viewing of the total solar eclipse August 21. For example, the California grid operator has daily experience managing solar output as the sun rises and sets, compensating for diminished sunlight by increasing the output from other sources.

It'll be the first solar eclipse some see in their lifetime.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth's shadow is cast onto the moon.

Usually, the moon's shadow misses the Earth because the moon's orbit is on a 5-degree tilt compared with the earth's orbit.

Normally, when we glance at the sun our instinct is to look away before damage occurs.

It might seem unusual that the moon is able to cover the sun because it's 400 times smaller. Once the eclipse has begun, the moon continues to eat its way across the blazing sun before darkness falls, the temperature drops and the sky is dominated by a radiant crown around the moon.
