NASA launches new app to allow people to share Solar Eclipse experience

Mike Kentrianakis in 2008 in Siberia

Teachers at Henderson County Schools are preparing for the August 21 total solar eclipse.

This will be the first time totality will contact the lower 48 United States since 1979, and the first coast-to-coast path of totality since 1918.

But why does this happen, what will we see on the Big Island and is it really a big deal? "So we have the chance, perhaps, for a whole generation of kids to be inspired by this physical, astronomical event that is not necessarily happening in a video game, but that is happening in the real world around them".

"On average, about every 18 months, a total solar eclipse everywhere in the world", Des Jardins said.

The next total solar eclipse visible here in Northwest Florida will be on August 12, 1945. The celebration at the state capitol will include concerts, NASA's traveling "Journey to Tomorrow" exhibit, presentations from NASA scientists, and a live broadcast of the eclipse by NASA TV. The eclipse, when the moon will completely cover the sun, will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Ore., to Charleston, S.C.

Whether viewing a partial eclipse like in Bladen County or the total eclipse to the south, interested persons will need to take precautions.

You might have more questions about how to view the eclipse safely and how to take pictures of it.

No matter how dark they are or what their UV rating is, normal sunglasses will not be enough to protect your eyes as you look directly at the Sun. The program will cover what to bring on the trip, safe viewing techniques and how to make the best use of the estimated 2 minutes, 41 seconds of total eclipse in southern IL. As the moon crosses between the earth and sun, the sun will appear to change shape as it will be partially blocked from our view. He says eye protection is needed to view an eclipse to prevent permanent eye damage.

Another total eclipse will not be visible in Hawaii this century.

10 from 6-7:30 p.m., Curtis Memorial Library and Cornerstones of Science will host an informational program on the upcoming eclipse.

When asking Everly what makes the safety glasses more protective than sunglasses, he explained that they are tinted so darkly that the only thing you can see is the sun.
