Places to buy legitimate eye glasses for the eclipse

If you're outside this path, you will see a partial eclipse. Boy, you are so wrong.

"Those who have been fortunate enough to experience a total solar eclipse usually describe it as a "moment of awe", Schlacht said in a press release. The last time the USA saw a total eclipse was in 1979.

Got it? Good. Now go enjoy the eclipse you insane kids.

Dr. Fitzgerald says that directly viewing the sun can cause blindness and special solar eclipse glasses are needed.

Longway's events on The Day - many free - run from 11 a.m.to 4 p.m., all ages welcome, including telescope observing, live streaming from the path of totality in the planetarium dome, outdoor hands-on activities, and food available for purchase. There will be a partial lunar eclipse on August 7, though it will not be visible in Tucson.

If you can't find any freebies, various eclipse eyewear options - from simple cardboard-framed filters costing only a few dollars to expensive eclipse-safe binoculars and cameras - can be purchased from drugstores, grocery stores, and online retailers.

Totality will first hit OR around 10.15am Pacific time.

These areas aren't usually heavily populated, but because of the momentous occasion this eclipse is considered to be, many, many people are expected to travel to them in order to witness the event.

According to the American Astronomical Society, just four manufacturers have certified that their eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard for such products: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17.

According to experts at NASA, one popular theory is that the bands originate in the atmosphere due to highly unpredictable air cells that help to "focus and de-focus the sharp-edged light from the solar surface". Sunglasses (Rx or not; polarized or not) and smoked glass do not contain these layers and as such are NEVER safe for direct viewing of the sun.

'This will allow us to maximize our chance to collect data and connect the shadow of the moon to Earth science'. The astronomical feat happens when the sun, moon and Earth align completely. The following list are those states along its path and thus, most directly impacted: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and SC.

It's going to fall across America from OR to SC along a path 60 to 70 miles wide.

The result is that the sun and the moon appear to be the same size from our perspective.

This line-up occurs once every 12 to 18 months.
