Science teacher headed to SC for eclipse

The Solar Eclipse Is Coming. But How Do We Know, And When Did We Know It?

We are just 10 days away from the first total solar eclipse in nearly 100 years and while watching the celestial event is a rare experience, it also carries a lot of dangers.

The Land of Enchantment will only experience a partial eclipse, but the 60 mile wide path of "totality" from OR to SC will be ground zero with numerous telescopes. For the first time I in almost 30 years, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the USA on August 21.

The best of the apps are the Smithsonian's Eclipse 2017 and Eclipse Safari, which offer science history, and best practices for why you need to wear your solar glasses during the time of totality, respectively. It is estimated that the total solar eclipse in Oak Ridge will last 27 to 31 seconds at approximately 2:33 p.m. EDT August 21.

Today, we know the moon's precise contours and orbit, and can accurately predict an eclipse's timing and its path down to the scale of a city block. Everyone above 96th Street saw totality - when the moon completely covers the disk of the sun - and everyone below did not.

Total solar eclipses occur when we have a new moon.

While the Sun is the most commanding element of an eclipse, keep in mind to look around you. The landscape around you will be changing as the sun passes behind the moon, which will create cool shadows and a great opportunity for awesome pictures or a time-lapse video.

People watch a partial eclipse in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on March 20, 2015.

Retailers including REI, Walmart, and Best Buy have sold of their eclipse glasses online.

If your skies turn out to be overcast on the day of the eclipse, there's still ways that you can take part in the event.

Where can the solar eclipse be seen? You can drop of your donations at the Family Service Society at 827 Joe Clifton Drive between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m.to 3:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday.

The total eclipse in America will be visible in 14 different states, according to NASA. In other words, they are not in a straight line.

Samantha Blair, assistant professor of physics and astronomy, spoke about what actually does happen during an eclipse. "You have to be in totality to see the precise moments of time the sunlight hits the edge of the moon where it's cratered or there's a valley". The experiment aims to map electrons within the sun's atmosphere, known as the corona, and could answer the question of why the sun's surface, which is several thousands degrees, is so much cooler than its atmosphere, which has been gauged in the millions of degrees. With your back to the sun, look at your hands' shadow on the ground. Use the hashtag #Eclipse2017 and tag @NASAGoddard to connect your photos on social media to those taken around the country and share them with NASA. She started hearing about the solar eclipse and planning for it two years ago.

Also, the eclipse came later than expected - which made the front page of The New York Times.
