New Orleans solar eclipse: Where to watch on August 21

Science Corner – Total eclipse of the sun Michael AlbrowThursday

The moon will pass between the earth and the sun on a west-to-east trajectory and completely eclipse the sun first in Lincoln Beach, Ore.at 10:16 a.m. Such an event does not occur very often.

With regard to humanity's fascination with solar eclipses, Stojkovic adds, "Our sun is directly related to all forms of life on Earth, so its disappearance, even for a few minutes, was historically associated with some dire predictions - like natural catastrophes, big wars, deaths of kings, etc". "This is what allows us the phenomenal beauty of the total solar eclipse".

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

The "dark band" of the eclipse stretches from Columbia, Missouri to the Tennessee/Georgia line. You don't have to wear them to simply go outside - they're so strong, you won't be able to see anything. About 60% of the sun will be covered-up by the moon, which makes for a "partial eclipse". When total eclipse begins in western OR, the partial eclipse will just be starting here in Baltimore.

Texas will experience a coverage of 68 percent and should be visible with good weather in Central Texas. It is notsafe to view the eclipse with regular sunglasses. That's going to last in this area maybe 1 to 2 minutes. Kentucky will get 40 seconds more. It's wider path than the upcoming eclipse will also clip far western Kentucky with totality.

Other prime places to watch the eclipse in Kentucky are Franklin and Scottsville.

Nelson and other members of LAS will be at a resort on Kentucky Lake watching the eclipse. While technically you can shoot the eclipse photos without breaking your phone camera, the results will be much more palatable if you used a filter, like the one you use for your own eyes.
