Solar eclipse mania! What NJ sungazers really need to know

Total solar eclipse Things to know

The total eclipse will last only a couple of minutes.

It's the first total solar eclipse visible in the US but no other country since the founding of our nation in 1776. While some parts of the country will experience a total solar eclipse, in San Diego it will only be a partial one, with up to three-fourths of the sun covered by the moon, according to experts. West Texas will have about 75 percent totality, so the sun will be mostly blocked but some will remain visible. The intense solar rays coming through these devices will damage the solar filter and your eyes.

Therefore, you should never ever stare directly at the sun during a solar eclipse.

On Monday, August 21st, the moon will completely cover the moon stretching from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.

"I've seen a couple of partial eclipses and there won't be another one of this magnitude, even though we will only see a partial... there won't be another one in a long, long time". The next solar eclipse visible in San Diego will occur in 2023. This is why everyone's going insane trying to get their hands on some eclipse glasses. "If you weren't viewing it with a safe filter. you'd have no idea anything is going on", Shanahan said.

Jenna Riley at the Arkell Museum and Canajoharie Library says she remembers a solar eclipse in 1994, when she was in kindergarten. They will also have some eclipse glasses available, and several RVAS members will be there to answer questions.

There are also numerous viewing parties happening at town libraries, most of which are ideal if you have young children and don't have a desire to travel to one of the museums previously mentioned.

Read and follow the directions that come with your equipment. A touch of the finger transforms the image of a solar eclipse into the moon. Matt Fast, Hy-Vee store director, said the store general manager is trying to track more glasses down through various vendors but is struggling to find them. After glancing at the sun, turn away and remove your filter - do not remove it while looking at the sun.

If you live, or are visiting, somewhere that will be in the path of totality then there will be a VERY BRIEF time window where you can safely view the total solar eclipse without protective glasses. "Basically, the sun will look like a cookie with a bite taken out".

With that being said, there are some spots in New Jersey that are making the most of the eclipse and organizing viewing parties. This is important even if you are wearing eclipse glasses or holding a solar viewer at the same time.
