Make sure you have certified glasses for the solar eclipse!

The path of totality in the early afternoon of August 21 will cross the entire lower 48 states for the first time in a century, starting near OR just after 1:15 pm and ending in SC a little after 2:30 pm. And that is despite the fact that the maximum time the moon will cover the visible disk of the sun, depending on one's location, will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. More locations will be announced approaching the event.

A number of area retailers are now selling eyewear related to the event, but when choosing protective glasses for viewing the eclipse the most important feature to look for, according to NASA's website, is that the glasses meet the ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard.

This is the first total eclipse to cross the entire United States since 1918. "And what better place to see the eclipse?" As you look to the skies, do not forget to take the proper precautions to protect your eyesight.

Use a pinhole projector or eclipse-rated eye protection when viewing the event.

As the Moon orbits Earth it occasionally passes between us and the sun.

Solar Retinopathy is the name for damage to the back part of the eye, or "retina" by looking at the Sun. Dayton will not see a total eclipse, but we will be at about 90 percent. In other words, you need to protect your eyes against harmful UV rays - and eclipse glasses will do just that.

Reminder: You need such specialized gear to view the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun; run-of-the-mill sunglasses, even extra-dark ones, won't cut it. Once the moon is over the sun completely, the sky is safe to look at.

Along with making sure you've got safe solar eclipse glasses, we're loving these fun solar eclipse gifts to commemorate an experience that has happened in a very long time. Magnetograms located at each site will trace polar plumes that have appeared above the northern and southern solar coronal holes during previous eclipses.

"The viewing obviously won't be as good if it's a cloudy day, but just like a cloudy evening, you can still tell when the sun sets", Krepps said.

Outside of Denali in Alaska and Mount Tacoma (Rainier) in Washington, Gannett is considered the hardest state high point to reach.

People had to go through a variety of stations, completing at least three out of five to get their pair. But even people who don't make the trip will still be able to witness the event online, thanks to webcasts planned by a variety of organizations.
