The 'Great American Eclipse' is approaching on August 21

On Monday, August 21, the first total solar eclipse to fully cross the United States in nearly 100 years will cover a 70-mile wide strip of the country in darkness. Monday's solar eclipse will be visible across North America, with anyone within a roughly 70-mile-wide path from OR to SC experiencing a brief total eclipse.

For the Monday night special, Mike Massimino will host from Charleston, S.C., the last place on land in U.S.to see the eclipse. "But it's a big deal". Senior executive producer Paula S. Apsell said "Eclipse Over America", which delves into why eclipses occur and what scientists can learn from them, will incorporate images of the event from across the country shot earlier that day with Dantowitz's high-tech cameras. The timing for a total eclipse over any specific spot, though, can vary dramatically depending on how the cosmic bodies align.

After the 2017 solar eclipse, the next total solar eclipse visible over the continental United States will be on April 8, 2024.

A different kind of eclipse - called an annular eclipse, or "Ring of Fire" eclipse - did cross the United States from coast to coast in 1994. This makes both moon and sun virtually the same angular size in our sky.

- "Eclipse of the Century ": In partnership with Volvo, CNN plans two hours of livestreaming, 360-degree coverage accessible in virtual reality through Oculus and other VR headsets beginning at 1 p.m. EDT.

Lunar topography data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's SELENE lunar orbiter were used to precisely calculate the location of the moon's shadow.

"A small plot of farmland just north of Hopkinsville is where the axes of all three heavenly globes will align, putting it at center stage for the Great North American Eclipse", the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer previously reported. That's what we did in elementary school for the eclipse in the '70s.

"Totality" - the term for when the Moon completely blocks out light from the Sun - begins near Lincoln Beach, Oregon, at 10:16 am Pacific time (1:16 pm Eastern, or 1716 GMT).

Nokia 8 launched, boast of dual-sight mode
The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 have now all become available to interested buyers - but they were all decidedly lower-to-midrange designs . Under the hood , it gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 6GB or 8GB RAM options.

Kentucky cities in the path of totality include Madisonville, Hopkinsville, Paducah and Bowling Green.

"We want to collect exactly what all these animals are doing as it gets dark ... what do we see, what do we hear", University of Missouri astronomer Angela Speck said. Parts of OR will, however, experience a total eclipse.

Hundreds of millions of people will fall under the shadow of the eclipse, since the whole country will be darkened - some parts more than others.About 12 million people live in the path of totality, according to the American Astronomical Society.

"If it's not a 100 percent eclipse, It's not safe to look at", Dr. Cass explains.

How should I watch it? .

We all know by now that you need to wear special glasses to watch the eclipse.

Eye protection is necessary: the sun's power may seem diminished, but the crescent of light can burn your eye's retina as quickly as the full disc.

Another option, to avoid looking skyward, is to make a pinhole in a sheet of paper or cardboard, and project the Sun's image onto another piece of paper.
