Solar eclipse will cut out North American solar power for 90 minutes

Rabun County braces for massive eclipse crowds

Later this month, New Hampshire will be treated to a partial solar eclipse, and wearing proper safety glasses is important. Library Director Elaine Dunne-Thayer said they'll have a live NASA feed running all day, and will also have a laptop set up so visitors can explore the eclipse site.

The total eclipse will cut across the contiguous United States from coast to coast, giving millions of people around the country a chance to see the moon pass in front of and blot out the sun.

Portions of 14 states are in the path of totality of the eclipse, when the sun is completely covered by the moon. He said more than 100 people attended a Science on Tap session August 2 at Madison's Nomad World Pub, and some 300 came out when he spoke at the Institutes for Discovery on the UW-Madison campus Saturday, where he ran out of the eclipse glasses he was selling.

Last night's astrological wonder was a partial eclipse - meaning only part of the moon passed through the Earth's shadow.

Don't worry if you can't make it down to see the total eclipse, there are still plenty of events happening in the city where you can watch a partial eclipse.

'The solar eclipse of August 21 will be the first to cross America in 99 years. "Although a total eclipse was seen on the Big Island of Hawaii on July 11, 1991, no other total eclipse was visible from the lower 48 states of the U.S. between 1979 and 2017 - a lapse of over 38 years!"

Are all glasses the same?

Hoven. "As America's primary eye health and vision care experts, doctors of optometry are excited to help everyone enjoy it safely by protecting their eyes".

Know where to watch the eclipse. Various agencies and institutions have already plotted out the eclipse's path for everyone, so it's only a matter of finding the most suitable viewing location. Scientifically, a total solar eclipse provides a rare opportunity to observe the sun's corona, or outer atmospheric layer, as well as other solar atmospheric features, which are normally not visible because they are much dimmer against the sun's overall glare.

72nd anniversary of atomic bombing marked by prayers
On the 6 August 1945, 140,000 people were killed after the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb in the Japanese city of Hiroshima .

Although that may sound good enough, it will be far less than ideal because of the sun's intensity, said Angela Speck, a professor of astronomy at the University of Missouri and co-chairwoman of a national eclipse task force for the American Astronomical Society.

According to NASA's website, the total eclipse is expected to last up to 2 minutes and 40 seconds, depending on the person's location.

Some of the recommended manufacturers on the list include Baader Planetarium, Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, TSE 17, and American Paper Optics.

The chamber also has glasses available for purchase for $2 per pair.

Check for the ISO number.

It's like "a magnifying glass on a leaf when you were a kid", an optometrist told Angela Fritz, who is an atmospheric scientist and The Post's deputy weather editor. The cost is $5.00 to park, with each vehicle receiving a free pair of viewing glasses.

The Eugene Public Library, Friends of Eugene Public Library, and Eugene Public Library Foundation are sponsoring the events.

Astronomers Without Borders is donating glasses to veteran's hospitals, homeless youth shelters, and other underserved communities.
