  • View the solar eclipse safely

Around 7.4 million people could descend on the United States to watch Monday's total solar eclipse, astronomers have predicted.

A total solar eclipse is seen from Palembang city on March 9, 2016 in Palembang, South Sumatra province, Indonesia. It's spectacular, inspiring, moving and there's just nothing like it. People who've never seen one before see a total solar eclipse and it's life changing. The dubbed "Great American Eclipse", is sure to be a spectacular celestial event, but proper precautions should be taken while viewing the event.

"Solar eclipses are considered rare events by most people, astronomically speaking that is not entirely accurate", said Jan Cami, director of the Cronyn Observatory and a Professor of Astronomy at the Department of Physics and Astronomy."There is a total solar eclipses on average every 18 months".

Using optical filters to photograph the eclipse when you are not on the path of totality is risky.

This Monday, August 21, 2017, the sun will disappear, the air will become colder, and millions of North Americans will be looking towards the sky. The path of total eclipse includes Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia and SC.

Exposure to UV light via the sun is linked to cataracts, growth on the outside of the eye, and macular degeneration, but there's an increased threat when looking at an eclipse because it's more intense. Nebraska will have some of the longest totality. NASA links tothis site of reputable eclipse glasses brands; see also on this page information about libraries and NASA viewing locations that are giving out free glasses.

Here is an extremely handy interactive map.

By the time the natural phenomenon sweeps across the state again, she'd be 108, she said, making Monday's spectacle truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. "To get people interested in astronomy and to stay interested in astronomy".

Well, no. The moon's orbit velocity is faster than the Earth's rotation, meaning the moon's shadow will move quickly across the Earth from west to east. "I'm expecting it to look like something from a Si-fi movie".

Observe animals and insects around you because they will begin to act as if it is twilight. It will be visible everywhere in the country for up to three hours from beginning to end.

Because of that, it'll be very hard to document the eclipse on Instagram. Please bring your own protective glasses or pinhole viewers as we have already given our supply away.

You can even type in your exact address to see whether you'll get a good view. The chances that you'll experience a total solar eclipse are slim to none.
