Eclipse: Sun set for disappearing act

The Sac State Aquatic Center will be celebrating the eclipse with a Solar Eclipse Paddle Trip led by one of the kayaking instructors. Think parks, observatories or high elevations.

An eclipse occurs when the moon blocks any part of the sun, causing the Moon's shadow to sweep across the Earth. Photo courtesy of NASA. "Join us for this rare and attractive cosmic event".

You want to look away from the sun, and you want to hold them in place, while viewing the eclipse and look away when it's time to remove them.

The events will have activities and will be providing glasses.

Bring a cereal box and make an eclipse projector!

This eclipse occurred back in 1970. Several states are anticipating traffic jams ahead of the eclipse, and some are even halting construction projects during the day.

NASA said by putting a filter over your iPhone lens, it protects your camera, and they warn people not to point it at the sun without a filter. For more information about the safety glasses, visit Glasses.

The total solar eclipse, one of nature's most enchanting spectacles, is only viewable from specific locations in North America on rare occasions. Immediately after the eclipse viewing, the planetarium at the Powerhouse Science Center will have an eclipse themed show starting at 11 a.m.

Shawn Mendes Will Kick Off MTV Unplugged' Revival
Mendes' latest single is now No. 1 on Top 40 radio, and he'll be performing at the MTV Video Music Awards , which air August 27. Adds Mendes: "People come to my shows not really knowing what to expect, and they leave experiencing a real rock-pop concert.

How to host an Eclipse Party 1. Check your local media for more.

But this is a maybe once-in-a-lifetime event, so we think you might as well get some friends together, throw a morning pizza party, and feel good about recycling the boxes for an awe-inspiring experience with Mother Nature that hasn't been seen across the U.S since 1979. For decor, think astronomy-themed.

The city will experience totality for 2 minutes and 40 seconds and will have the country's greatest alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth.

Viewers of the total eclipse (unfortunately, not those in California) will be able to see the sun's atmosphere and the solar wind, a stream of energized particles that permeates our entire solar system, as long as the weather permits. Anything less than 100 percent (a total eclipse) means that protective lenses are required to view the eclipse. It will start in Salem, Oregon, and cross through Charlotte, North Carolina. The lunar shadow leaves the United States at 4:09 p.m. EDT.

To see a livestream of the eclipse on August 21, check out Eclipse. Land shading is based on a global mosaic of images from NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, and elevations are based on data from NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission.

"Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight", the site explains.

And, because humans are bad, the market has been flooded with glasses that purport to be safe, and even have the ISO stamp on them, but are not safe for actually looking at the sun. The celebration will feature safe ways to view the eclipse (including free eclipse glasses and a telescope), as well as misting tents to keep everyone cool, giveaways and games.
