What to Look For When Buying Eclipse Glasses

To join me - to experience the totality eclipse in Oregon.

Though Chicago is expected to see only a partial eclipse, with 87 percent of the sun covered, it will be the closest the city has been to the path of totality since 1925. During a lunar eclipse, the Earth comes between the moon and the sun and the Earth's shadow falls on the moon, causing the moon to look red.

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

As the moon starts to move between the sun and the Earth, a partial eclipse will begin. At 2:00 pm, an Eclipse Magic Show will be presented, featuring Darshwood, a Vegas style magic show - NOT just for kids, but especially aimed at adults. The next solar eclipse in Kansas will be in 2045, according to local officials.

NASA's path of totality maps show a crisply defined, 70-mile-wide path where the moon blocks 100 percent of the sun.

The total eclipse is going to take about 2 to 3 hours- the different phases of the eclipse itself. Just remember if you order online, they may not arrive in time if you procrastinate.

Travelers have been busy booking hotels.

"It doesn't happen anywhere else in the solar system", he said.

It's not just humans who will be affected by the Great American Eclipse coming on August 21 - expect animals to act strangely too.

"It's incredibly exciting and something you should participate in and enjoy, but you should do it safely with the proper filters for your eyes", he stressed. "It was kind of disappointing", said Smith.

If you are in its direct path, you'll never forget it.

So it's important to know exactly where you are on eclipse day in relation to that path of totality, advises Dr. B. Ralph Chou, a retired professor of optometry at the University of Waterloo in Ontario who is also an astronomer and eclipse chaser.

There are several viewing parties planned here for the community and tourists. Pizza also will be available for purchase.

Free certified eclipse shades will be distributed by the KCK CVB through hotels and attractions, until the glasses run out, according to the CVB.

A full solar eclipse in America means lots of things.

One source told Business Insider that she had nearly purchased a five-pack of eclipse glasses on Amazon, before double checking the date - and realizing that they wouldn't arrive until September.

'In a brief moment of ecstasy, we will understand everything, and together create a new universe. The CVB has its own eclipse website page at www.VisitKansasCityKS.com/solareclipse2017.

Eclipses were believed to portend punishment from the heavens, the death of kings, danger, drought and pestilence, even the end of the world.

'If we have chemistry, I would like for us to make love while the eclipse is happening. "For Kearney, the previous one was more than 800 years ago".

There are many kinds of solar eclipses.

You can get more information and safe viewing options from NASA and the American Astronomical Society.

Law enforcement officials are discouraging residents from driving and stopping on the side of a highway to view the eclipse. You can also make a nice pinhole projector inside a box, such as a large cereal box or shipping box.
