The last solar eclipse that was visible in the United Kingdom occurred on February 26 but was only be visible in certain areas around the world - including in South and West Africa, some of South America, the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Ocean, and Antarctica.

As the excitement for the solar eclipse builds, some people are shelling out money to purchase glasses to watch the eclipse. It's a sure thing that on August 21, the moon's shadow will darken the skies over a wide swath of North America, with the band of totality sweeping from OR to SC. On average, a total solar eclipse is visible from any one place on Earth once every 375 years. "Plan to be somewhere where you can sit still and see that, not on the side of the interstate, certainly not on the side of the interstate", GDOT spokesperson Natalie Dale said.

They also advised people to check ahead of time about where you can find additional supplies, as well as bathroom facilities while those living inside the path of eclipse may also want to stock up on basic supplies too. Temperatures will drop rapidly as the moon completely covers the sun.

The rays during the solar eclipse are way more powerful than the rays on a regular day of sunshine due to the positioning of the sun. Sunspots, magnetic loops, prominences, helmet streamers and even coronal mass ejections are all surface phenomena that could be visible during the eclipse. Leading up to the day of the eclipse, you may want to visit your viewing spot to make sure there are no trees or buildings that will obstruct your view of the total or partial solar eclipse.

"We're learning new stuff about how the atmosphere behaves", Angela Speck, director of astronomy at the University of Missouri, told WMAR.

"Fortunately, getting hold of eclipse glasses is very easy", said MacTavish. Eclipse-viewing glasses are available for free at several locations around Atlanta. "It can cause severe vision problems", he warns.

The academy is also looking for citizen scientists to help with a program documenting how animals respond to the eclipse. When previous eclipses occurred, the solar corona has been shown to be 2 to 3 million degrees. "It's as if you have your own personal astronomer by your side".

Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical devices.
