How to safely view the solar eclipse on August 21

Discovery Center

The main program, beginning at noon Central Time, will track the path of totality - where the moon fully covers the sun for a few short minutes. "It will be quite significant".

It will be completely dark Monday afternoon during the solar eclipse.

Garvin said it has been almost 100 years since an eclipse of this magnitude has been seen from the U.S.

With any solar eclipse, in order to view it, the forecast has to cooperate.

But it is also of considerable interest to Canadian observers.

During a total solar eclipse the darkening sky is not the only effect. The peak eclipse will occur at 2:48 p.m. and full daylight will resume around 4 p.m. This event also is free and open to the public.

Around here, the eclipse will take place from 9:08 to 11:38 a.m. Such days ended some time ago.

The California Academy of Sciences' project, Life Responds, invites people to report about how animals and plant life react during the eclipse. And yet, the coming celestial ballet between humanity's one and only home, its solitary satellite and its life-giving star promises to generate considerable interest. We have plenty, but if not enough, we highly encourage sharing so everyone can view the solar sensation safely. The eclipse should reach the Valley by 1:17 p.m. and end around 3:57 p.m.

"We hope families will enjoy this wonderful experience and utilize knowledge gained from the instruction about the eclipse", Graham said. Humans however can not stand on the surface of Jupiter.

It hasn't crossed into the inner solar system since 1992, and isn't set to do so again until 2126.According to Siegel, scientists' calculations of its orbit show Earth is "100 per cent safe' from the comet for thousands of years to come - but, in the year 4479, it will come terrifyingly close".

This phenomenon of eclipse-chasing - many call it an addiction - dates back to the advent of affordable, accessible travel and cultural analysts have interpreted it as a search for magic in an age of cold, calculating algorithms.

Aviation company VistaJet, founded in 2004, is offering its customers that opportunity. "It is hard to put the experience into words, and hard to convey to others".

Only people within the path of totality, which is about 70 miles wide, will be able to see the total solar eclipse. It is also not safe to look at the sun through the viewfinder of a camera or an unfiltered telescope. Some are making day trips to SC, to see the total eclipse, while others are prepared to watch the event from home, using specialized glasses or pinhole projectors. The filter will both protect the lens from intense sunlight and ensure you don't accidentally look at the sun through an unfiltered instrument.

The AAS also lists retail chains that are OK to buy from as long as the glasses are one of the brands listed above. This is important even if you are wearing eclipse glasses or holding a solar viewer at the same time.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime event", the teacher said.

"If I had to guess, the [opening] from 2001: A Space Odyssey", said Mallory.

This of course raises a final question: what would be an appropriate piece of music?
