What the solar eclipse may look like in Arizona

Showers, isolated storms today, tomorrow and Thursday

We're less than two weeks from the Great American Eclipse.

The rare event offers educational opportunities for everyone, however.

"For those who choose to experience this eclipse outside the path, a partial eclipse is all they will see".

"People can seriously damage their eyes", she said.

"If we had known the excitement and demand in advance, we might have done more programs", said Allison McLean, head of the children's department at the library. You'll want to check out this map in order to scope out the best seats in the country when the eclipse arrives.

No matter how much of the eclipse is available, properly viewing it with special glasses it is a must. "The only time it is safe to remove eclipse glasses would be during the totality phase, when 100 percent of the sun's light is blocked from Earth's surface". "And now you've got this, where the maximum you're going to get is just over two and a half minutes, but that onset of darkness is pretty fast". Then, come time, Samantha (Page, youth librarian) will take them out to see if they can see anything.

NASA says glasses older than three years or that have scratches are not safe. If you can't afford to travel to the best viewing places, there will be lots of coverage.

"You have to be precise about that".

Tillerson to visit Southeast Asia
The ministry said Lavrov and Tillerson agreed to meet on the sidelines of the 24th ASEAN Regional Forum, which will be held from August 6-8 in the Philippine capital, Manila.

Thirty counties in SC, including Edgefield, are within the path of totality. Which not all of the Nashville Metro area is.

They also advised people to check ahead of time about where you can find additional supplies, as well as bathroom facilities while those living inside the path of eclipse may also want to stock up on basic supplies too.

The American Astronomical Society has compiled a list of reputable manufacturers and authorized dealers.

"There's enough light that gets around, even with 97 percent of totality, that can damage, burn the retina in the back of the eye", Dr. David Ross said.

Taking safety precautions, such as a wearing proper eye protection, is important to avoid solar retinopathy, which can lead to mild to moderate vision reduction or even central blind spots, according to a University of Louisville news release. DO NOT use a solar filter that screws into the eyepiece of the telescope. And remember, he said, it is not necessary to have a pair of glasses for each member of the family unless you're likely to stare at the sky through the entire period of time when the moon will obscure part of the sun. It is as if a sunset was compressed from 30 or 40 minutes down to just a few seconds.

It's like "a magnifying glass on a leaf when you were a kid", an optometrist told Angela Fritz, who is an atmospheric scientist and The Post's deputy weather editor. "Put (eclipse viewing glasses) over your (prescription) glasses", said Podoll. He recommends keeping them inside that day.

We might want to view the August 21 eclipse as a primer to an event for our lifetime, coming right here to Pennsylvania on April 8, 2024.
