Eclipse glasses sold out everywhere in York County

WABE's guide to the eclipse includes when where and how to view the celestial event

People can also view the eclipse with a pinhole projector, a card with a small hole through it, to project an image of the sun. But the crew will be able to see the umbra, where the eclipse is total, near the southern horizon.

With your solar glasses or a special viewer, watch for the partial phases of the eclipse as the moon passes over the sun, a stage that lasts for a few hours.

What is a solar eclipse?

Marengo resident Linda Rudnik thinks there already has been "a whole lot of hoopla" about the solar eclipse that will be visible from the contiguous 48 states August 21. It will start in Texas and go in a northeast direction, through OH and up into Canada.

Q: So seeing a total eclipse has been a longtime dream?

But when totality hits on August 21, scientists will know exactly how much solar radiation is blocked, the area of land it is blocked over and for how long.

Trump Speaks to Guam Governor About... Tourism?
Eddie Calvo said. "I just wanted to pay my respect", Trump said to Calvo over the phone. "You've become extremely famous". Governor Eddie Calvo during a press briefing on Friday told everyone to remain calm and enjoy the weekend .

In Oregon, that sense of awe will greet members of Generation Eclipse on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, where 13 teams of primarily Native American kids will gather in the path of totality to release weather balloons during the eclipse.

New York City won't see a total solar eclipse this time around; only part of the sun's disk will be covered. "Anyone in the path of totality will see it for about 2 ½ minutes, but the strength is in the network". Because the eclipse will only be partial, it's essential that anyone wishing to view it obtain the correct protective eyeware. The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m. At maximum, a sliver of light will remain in the upper left corner of the sun. I am going to be at a place in [Hopkinsville, Kentucky], where I can predict when the sun will disappear behind the moon, and when it will reappear to the nearest tenth of a second. Birds won't start roosting or anything. And everything will go dark and eerily quiet as plants and animals act as though night is falling and the temperature drops, sometimes by 10 degrees or more. The sky will take on an eerie grayish, dim glow. A solar eclipse hasn't happened in the United States since 1979, and not from Atlantic to Pacific in 99 years. This year's eclipse will be a once- or twice-in-a-lifetime event for many American adults, but if you were born in 2010, you could witness eight total solar eclipses on American soil before turning 70.

The careful observation of the moon's shadow "will make more precise computations possible next time", a New York Times reporter wrote.

Blair said the moon will begin to cover the sun around 1:03 p.m. We don't always get eclipse configurations every month due to the geometric constraints. "The people who see the total eclipse are in the center of the moon's shadow when it hits Earth". That central shadow creating that thin path is known as the path of totality.

"They're not an acceptable means for protecting your retina", if you stare directly at the sun, he said. But there is still a lot to learn about the sun's size and mechanisms of its outer atmosphere, called the corona.
