Keep a wary eye on those glasses — NASA warns

In Georgetown, the partial eclipse will begin at 1:17 p.m. with the shadow of the moon starting to cover the sun. So now is the time to prepare for what we'll see here and how to make the most of this extraordinary experience.

This eclipse's "path of totality" starts in OR and runs southeast across the country to SC before the shadow of the moon goes out to sea.

"Given that the timing and path of the eclipse are well understood and well reflected in solar generation forecasts by CAISO and other grid operators, generation dispatch or curtailment would be managed as a part of routine operations", said Steve Krum, a spokesman for First Solar Inc., the largest operator of solar plants in the U.S.

"I would go off the official NASA recommendation and use one of their eclipse viewing shades" he said.

Doctors say there are no real specific precautions that pet owners need to take to protect their pets from the eclipse.

Harris explains that a total solar eclipse is even more unbelievable.

In Lancaster County, observers expect the sun to be about 76% covered.

From Oregon in the west, to SC in the east, there will be festivals and flamboyant eclipse viewing parties. If you glance at the Sun through your solar filter and find it uncomfortably bright, out of focus, and/or surrounded by a bright haze, it's no good.

Campers will also get to participate in traditional 4-H camping activities including swimming, canoeing and hiking.

"The sky may get a little amusing, but sorry, it doesn't get dark", Harris says.

McConnell takes aim at Trump's 'excessive expectations'
Trump is trying to save his presidency by blaming McConnell, while McConnell is trying to save his majority by blaming Trump. Trump has faced the harsh reality of Washington's legislative pace since he took office.

However, if you are looking for it, you'll get a spectacular view of the moon crossing the sun. A station to make pinhole projectors to safely view the eclipse will be available, and live feeds from NASA observatories of the eclipse passing through the country will be displayed on the planetarium's dome screen. It is just as risky now as it is during the eclipse or during any other time.

You watch the projected image, with no risk of sun damage.

With any type of glasses, you should not be able to see anything around you when looking through them.

Among the top 50 results in an Amazon.com search for solar eclipse glasses, none of the five "Sponsored" products were manufactured by one of the NASA-recommended companies. If you can make out trees, cars, or houses, the glasses are not dark enough. It will state on the glasses that they meet the iso 2312-2 safety requirements.

Griffith Observatory Naturally, Griffith Observatory is hosting a viewing event featuring telescope viewing from the lawn, sidewalks and on their coelostat (solar telescope) in the Hall of the Sky (note: personal telescopes aren't allowed). Bring snacks, water, sunscreen and a pair of viewing glasses.

"Another pet owner said", If they don't have some eye protection, they would probably suffer the same eye damage a human would".

The group also warns against using some eclipse-viewing home remedies - such as sunglasses or wearing a welding mask.

Of course, the wild card in all of this will be the weather. The chances drop east of the MS, where clouds are more likely to interfere.

The American Astronomical Society on Monday warned that fake solar eclipse-viewing glasses are being sold ahead of the August 21 event.
