SC offers the closest path of totality viewing opportunities to Florida, with Charleston being the last major city in the witness the eclipse beginning at about 3:15 p.m. A total solar eclipse means that Earth, the sun, and the moon, which all orbit in space in predictable paths, will align. But the eclipse is not going to be quite total in the Athens and Oconee County, areas; it will be 99 percent.

North Texas is not in the path of totality, but we will see a partial solar eclipse.

Do not look at the sun directly through an optical viewfinder on your camera or binoculars or a telescope because the light will be further magnified on your eyes.

NASA has only approved eclipse glasses from a few companies. The library will also show the movie "Ladyhawke", one of the many movies in which an eclipse is an important plot element. Solar eclipses took particular significance, since they were believed to foretell the health and well-being of the Chinese emperor. The airlines also are making the most of the rare event. The average length of time between eclipses hitting the exact same spot on earth is 375 years, wow!

NASA recommends people use "eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers verified to be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 global safety standard for such products".

"This is where you want to be - somewhere along this line", said Dulsky.

"The last solar eclipse in Alabama that was as visible as this one is supposed to be was in 1918, and the next one will not be until 2045", he said.

So, what happens, if you're not in the path? Carbondale, in southern IL, is the hot spot for viewing the total solar eclipse on August 21st. The almost four-hour program will include unprecedented images of the August 21 eclipse from numerous spacecraft — including the International Space Station — high-altitude aircraft and balloons, and ground observations. I was in England at the time visiting friends. And then there's that diamond ring and finally the solar corona. When looking though the telescopes, you may be able to see the effect of the terrain on the moon on the solar shadow.

So mark your calendar and hope for a clear sky! With millions of eclipse chasers from all over the world expected to be in the path of totality, be prepared for heavy traffic. You should NEVER look at the sun directly. Duh.

No photograph has ever captured the full drama and beauty of a totally eclipsed sun as seen with the naked eye.
