Columbia Cashing in on Solar Eclipse Crowds

"The difference between a partial and a total (eclipse) is literally night and day", he said. The partial eclipse will be viewable for only an hour, between 6:20 and 7:20 a.m. HST.

2,955 Speed in miles per hour that the total eclipse will be travelling when it when it first reaches the OR coast at 12:05 pm EDT. Most of the time it's a partial eclipse where only a portion of the sun is covered.

During the viewing event, it's a good idea to bring a chair, hat, and water as it may be a warm day. "Oregon will get a 2 minute eclipse".

There are a few parties being held around Central Texas, but for much less money.

The viewing area at MTSU will be located in front of the science building and will open at 11 a.m. The program examines what eclipses are, how and when they occur. When total eclipse begins in western OR, the partial eclipse will just be starting here in Baltimore. If you happen to be on the Mainland when the 2017 eclipse happens, here are 10 viewing locations to consider.

- Total Solar Eclipse (free) offers live telescope views from NASA, narration of the live event in English and Spanish - even accompaniment by the Kronos Quartet.

Participants are invited to use safe viewing glasses to view the event at the library on the pedestrian bridge, grass lawn around the library or in the Greenway Park.


"Then that last little sliver when it just starts to disappear, the last little piece of the sun, it actually breaks up into little tiny beads called Baily's Beads", he adds.

Don't expect to see this natural phenomenon with the naked eye.

However, many people have fallen victim to phone eclipse glasses that won't actually protect your eyes.

The Great American Eclipse, the first solar eclipse visible in all of America since 1979, is coming up fast. "It is way too bright to look at", he said.

I have had people ask about sunglasses, and even 3D glasses. NO! You can bring a chair and a lunch or purchase food from May the Cheese Be With You, a food truck, starting at noon.

Numerous cities and towns in the path of totality are planning events to celebrate and watch the eclipse, but if you are in the Wheeling/West Liberty area and want to go somewhere to witness the spectacle, and have some fun, your best bet is Nashville, Tenn.

NASA's eclipse website has more safety tips as well as a list of approved, reputable makers of safe eclipse glasses put together by the American Astronomical Society. Hart and Huston said now is the time to plan for the large economic boom for the Killeen area. Other states where the complete solar eclipse can be seen are Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska and Montana.
