Cast your eyes online for a good view of solar eclipse

Here's where to watch the 2017 solar eclipse in the San Gabriel Valley

Eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers are low-cost and can be purchased from many retailers.

The easiest way to watch safely if you don't have the eclipse glasses is to use a pinhole projector.

CATE, the Continental American Telescope Eclipse, is an experiment more than two years in the making.

The next solar eclipse visible in Kern County will be October 2023. But according to Business Insider, some glasses ordered from Amazon.com will not arrive on time for the eclipse. Oregon's Department of Transportation said the eclipse will cause "the biggest traffic event in OR history" as visitors descend on the state in cars and camper vans. The telescopes will be manned by trained volunteers and scientists and the data uploaded will greatly benefit researchers.

The eclipse occurs on August 21.

Ever since I read Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" as a young girl, l have wanted to experience a total eclipse of the sun. This occurs when the moon's orbit brings it too far from Earth to block out the entirety of the sun from our earthly perspective. The path of totality will enter in OR, cross through Kansas City and Nashville before exiting in SC, as illustrated by the graphic.

Permanent damage can occur just from glancing at the sun. Originating in the wide open North Pacific and ending in the Atlantic well short of Africa, the eclipse path will cover 8,600 miles from end to end.

Gary Lineker reacts to Alvaro Morata's first goal in Chelsea v Burnley
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was disappointed with his side's discipline during their 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday. Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas both got sent off as Burnley stunned the champions .

The eclipse, or first contact, begins in Jacksonville around 1:17 p.m. Take care looking at the sun no matter where you're watching; you should never, ever look directly into the sun without proper protection. The moon will start casting its shadow on earth, blocking view of the sun, at about 1 p.m.

Total solar eclipses will cross the continental US twice more in the next 30 years, on April 8, 2024, and August 12, 2045.

For a list of reputable vendors and other safety advice for viewing the eclipse, NASA has more information on its website here.

Safe eclipse glasses should be stamped with a label indicating they meet the global "ISO 12312-2" standard - although Fienberg said counterfeiters have also started to print that on fake glasses.

"So we'll have an opportunity to showcase a bit of Tennessee State University, our Aristocrat band, one of the best bands in the country, you'll hear them having some fun". Eclipses in the US have been exceedingly rare.

The Eclipse of June 8, 1918's path of totality passed through central MS, according to NASA. If the solar filter shows any signs of damage, they are not safe to use.
