Here's where the clearest skies will be during the total solar eclipse

Woman asks museum to reschedule solar eclipse so her son can watch

Eclipse watchers in the 60- to 70-mile-wide "path of totality" that will cut through much of the middle US could briefly look directly at the eclipse without protection when the moon fully covers the sun.

The Liberty Science Center is hosting an all day event leading up to the eclipse on August 21 with eclipse demos, live broadcasts from states directly in the eclipse's path, and more. A solar eclipse hasn't happened in the United States since 1979, and not from Atlantic to Pacific in 99 years.

With just more than a week left, much of Western Kentucky is gearing up to become the epicenter of the 2017 total solar eclipse.

Considering that demand, the American Astronomical Society has updated its safety advice "in response to alarming reports" of unsafe eclipse-viewers popping up online. Tell us your best viewing spots in the comments.

The next total solar eclipse visible in the United States will be April 8, 2024, and Tupper Lake will be almost dead center in the path of totality.

If Aug. 21 comes and you don't have an approved eclipse viewer, you can always make a free and relatively simple device, like the "vastly under-appreciated" pinhole viewer, UW-Madison's Lattis said.

It could be the returning striker who leads the way to the Premier League or Champions League in the second half of this season. Gabriel Jesus is hoping the competition between him and Sergio Aguero can inspire Manchester City to greatness this season.

While it might sound counter-intuitive, staring at the sun during an eclipse is actually more harmful than staring at the sun on a regular day; this is because the light from an eclipse is more focused and more intense. During totality, when the moon blocks the sun, it's safe to remove the filter so you can see the sun's outer atmosphere: the corona.

So what will the sun look like your proper glasses?

Walmart has nearly everything, and solar eclipse glasses are not an exception. It will be at the midpoint, or maximum eclipse, at 2:22pm. The little spaces between your fingers will project a grid of small images on the ground, showing the sun as a crescent during the partial phases of the eclipse.

There are alternative methods to indirectly view the partially eclipsed sun.

Unlike places like Hopkinsville, which will experience a total eclipse, areas like Evansville will only see a partial eclipse. According to Nasa's solar scientist Mitzi Adams, plants will be affected by the eclipse.

The eclipse will start at around 1:25 p.m. and last until around 3:55. Come to the library for a viewing party!
