What You Need to Know to Watch the August 21 Solar Eclipse

Putnam Carpenter eclipse

Much of the state will be able to see parts of solar eclipse on August 21, with some areas of Western Kentucky experiencing a total solar eclipse. It will cut a 60-70 mile wide path in 14 states across the country from OR and through the mid-west, slicing through Tennessee and the North Carolina/South Carolina/Tennessee/Georgia/corner, through South Carolina and will exit on the South Carolina coast between Charleston and Georgetown.

When the moon completely blocks the sun's bright face for 2 or 3 minutes during the total eclipse, the otherwise hidden solar corona - the sun's outer atmosphere - will become visible.

To safely look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun, you need to wear eclipse glasses that contain special goal solar filters or handheld solar viewers that meet global standards.

Note: NASA says the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses" or hand-held solar viewers.

The eclipse will occur on 21 August and will pass through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC.

During a total solar eclipse the moon moves in front of the sun casting a shadow back on the Earth. You can find it here. "About 600 million years from now, Earth will experience the beauty and drama of a total solar eclipse for the last time". Roads will be clogged and travel times will be much more than a usual weekend. "Sun glasses of course are not the ideal protection and only look at the sun through those approved solar filters, and really if at all possible the main and best way to view the solar eclipse is going to be through a pinhole or binoculars".

The eclipse will leave the country entirely in Charleston, South Carolina, at 2:48 p.m.

Time: Viewing starts at 2 p.m. He cautions you'll need a special solar filter and some patience - eclipses take awhile.

The presentation, titled "Eclipse 101: Preparing for Darkness at Noon", is scheduled for 2 p.m. August 5 as part of the museum's "Solar Eclipse Day" event.

It's never a good idea to look directly at the sun, but the effects on the eyes are even more damaging when part of the sun is blocked by the moon's shadow.

It's unsafe to look at the sun with unprotected eyes. "Just before it's over, you'll see beads of light starting to form on the trailing edge".

Of course, the moment of totality in most locations lasts for a mere minute or two.

Americans aren't known for missing a trick when it comes to commercial opportunities and the Great American Eclipse is no exception.

To view the whole eclipse, special glasses will be needed that are a thousand times darker than sunglasses, letting in only 1 percent of the sunlight, Clemson University's Dr.
