Practicing safe viewing for upcoming solar eclipse

Here are the details about the actual event: the eclipse will pass through the US from OR to SC.

"Starting from 10.52 p m, the full moon will enter the Earth's shadow in space and create a spectacular celestial phenomenon, which is commonly known as partial lunar eclipse". The only time it is safe to look directly at the eclipse is during the total eclipse phase when the moon directly blocks the sun.

This is because the moon is moving further away by 3cm per year so, in a billion years or so, people on earth will witness the very last total solar eclipse.

An eclipse is the alignment of the Earth, Moon and Sun to the point where the sun "goes black".

In just two weeks, North America will get a chance to see a rare solar eclipse.

"Totality" is a fascinating look at all the wonders of eclipses, especially total solar eclipses. And while this summer's eclipse will only darken the skies for two minutes and 40 seconds, some of the later eclipses in the series will more than double that.

Thousands and Thousands of Solar Eclipses, all these years; what would be even new, you might think? There will be a noticed darkening of the sky similar to a cloud blocking the sun. The guide book contains 50 pages of solar eclipse science, maps, vehicle games, puzzles, crosswords, word searches, mad libs, coloring pages, story starters, and more. Sunglasses are NOT SAFE to use.

Manufacturers are cranking out millions of safety glasses for the upcoming solar eclipse. A pin-hole camera can easily be constructed to project the image on a surface.

Sun watchers gather around telescopes fitted with white light solar filters. Remember that special glasses or viewers will be needed to view the eclipse.

Here are 11 things to know about the eclipse and tips for viewing the historic event. The shadows will appear different and take on some pretty cool forms.

Even though the tri-state area isn't in the complete-eclipse path, our area will be treated to a 75 percent partial eclipse, which will make proper eye protection a must.
