Yolo County going 'luner' for solar eclipse

LONDON UNITED KINGDOM- MARCH 20 Students from Saint Ursula's Covent Secondary School in Greenwich pose for

(Find out the exact eclipse time for your area here, and we have separate audio stories above and below for those in the path of the total or partial eclipse, respectively.) Also, we want your eclipse plans, stories and photos. You will need special eclipse or solar viewers to look at the sun safely. "We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse". In the center of that 70-mile wide path, the total eclipse will last from 2 minutes to 2 minutes and 40 seconds. We have had nine total eclipses in the United States, most with short paths, for the entire 20th Century and it's been about a century since the last coast to coast total solar eclipse in 1918. SC will be treated to a total eclipse at 2:48 p.m.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the Sun, blocking our view of the sun.

Regardless of location, the eclipse will be starting at roughly 1:30 p.m.

So how can you watch the eclipse then? If you want to look for yourself, be sure they are compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard; if the glasses comply, they will be labeled with this.

Is there anytime during the eclipse that people can look up at the sun, not AT the sun, but at the eclipse during?

What is a solar eclipse? Not only is what I described above so incredibly amazing, but what makes it even more special is how rare it is.

As thousands of people travel to SC to watch the historic eclipse, the hunt is on for protective lenses to view the phenomenon. NASA suggests stretching out your fingers on both hands and overlaying them, creating a waffle pattern.

"During a regular eclipse, if you stay in one place, you can only see the corona for 1 or 2 minutes", Uitenbroeck said, "Putting telescopes at different places allows us to build up a time series where we can see how the corona changes". The longer the box, the larger the projection. Once you've glanced at the sun, turn your head away before removing the glasses. The light will come in and you will see a small projection, a negative image, of the eclipse. "The intense solar rays coming through the devices will damage your eyes".

Getting the chance to watch a solar eclipse is incredible but could also do serious damage to a person's eyes when he or she is not using the proper equipment.
