Here's where the clearest skies will be during the total solar eclipse

Here's where the clearest skies will be during the total solar eclipse

The total solar eclipse crossing America on August 21 will be the first eclipse to march from sea to shining sea in almost 100 years.

Despite that it is an event lasting less than a minute here, the solar eclipse could be this summer's big event.

"It won't be total darkness but it will be twilight here", she said.

"I'm a lifelong learner, and it's something interesting and something that's happening now".

"My wife and I will travel anywhere in the world for an eclipse", Zeiler said. Expect to see the sky darken and feel the temperature cool.

"Dalton will experience a partial eclipse, not a total eclipse like some other parts of the country, but more than 99 percent of the sun will be covered", Blair said.

Scientists say the eclipse will give us an unprecedented view of the solar atmosphere never seen before. The sun will look like a dark hole in the sky.

Eclipse Fests, StarFests, SolarFests, SolFests, Darkening of the SunFests, MoonshadowFests, EclipseCons, Eclipse Encounters and Star Parties are planned along the long but narrow path of totality, where the moon completely blots out the sun. During a partial solar eclipse, the sun is not almost as bright, so the temptation is to stare at the sun for too long a time.

No one wants that, so here's what you gotta do. Only during totality is it safe to look directly at the eclipse with the naked eye.

Mankind has observed eclipses since the dawn of time. The partial eclipse starts around 11:41 a.m.

"The more I talked to people, the more I realized people think they can look at the eclipse, and it concerned me", said doctor of optometry Elizabeth M. Atkinson from Atkinson Eye Care in Algonquin. These use special filters that block out the harmful rays of the Sun.

Optometrist Josiah Young had this to say: "If you use regular sunglasses you could possibly do some permanent damage to your retina".

"Telescopes with Solar Filters - Eclipses are best viewed directly when magnified, which means a telescope with a solar filter or solar telescopes". Staff will pass out free solar eclipse glasses but there is a limited amount of seats. It's getting dark very early, and you stare up at the sky and there is a black circle moving across the sun. This is a great general rule to follow, though observations are possible with the use of proper eye protection or indirect methods. There will be a catered lunch, and those participating will receive free eclipse viewing glasses.

Will I be able to see it?

A greater threat to seeing the eclipse, also common in summer, are mesoscale convective systems-essentially a complex of thunderstorms that becomes organized on a larger scale than one-off storms. Upload your eclipse images to NASA's Eclipse Flickr Gallery and relive the eclipse through other peoples' images.

"But you've got to be careful", says optometrist Myron Wasiuta. A total solar eclipse is a rare educational experience that doesn't cost anything, and that kids won't likely soon forget. Stars also can appear.

However, the timing of the eclipse is in the viewers' favor.

Places nearby the path of the total eclipse, like Washington state, experience the total eclipse. It will be an interesting astronomical event but not as dramatic as totality.

And while it was supposed to be the first day of class, all classes are cancelled on eclipse day.

Another method is to make a simple pinhole projector. Do hope for good weather and favorable viewing conditions on August 21, so that you can observe this spectacular event.
