Hamilton County schools to close for total solar eclipse

One way is to make a pinhole projector or you can purchase a pair of solar eclipse glasses.

This time around, the eclipse will be arcing along a 3,000-mile path from Oregon's Pacific coast to South Carolina's shores.

The partial solar eclipse will begin at 8:21 a.m.in Anchorage. "When the bright photosphere of the sun is completely covered, only the faint light from the corona is visible, and this radiation is too weak to have any harmful effects on the human retina".

Eclipse on a Warship, August 21, Charleston The U.S.S. Yorktown, at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum, will be one of the final locations in the United States to view the total eclipse at 2:46 p.m.

NASA is funding 11 projects that will allow scientists to use the eclipse to learn about the sun and its relationship to the Earth's upper atmosphere.

The planetarium will host a special public program, "A Total Solar Eclipse Experience", at 1 p.m. Saturday July 29, august 5 and august 12.

The total solar eclipse will be at maximum coverage in Henderson at 1:24 p.m. Both events are free and open to all ages.

This time around, everyone in this country will see at least a partial eclipse, but for most of us, it hardly will be noticeable.

Such measurements would also provide another benefit, Jubier said - investigating what some think is a thin layer in between the photosphere and chromosphere called the mesosphere. "But if you get outside, there are things you will notice". Even overlapping leaves from trees will cast unfamiliar crescent images. He says eye protection is needed to view an eclipse to prevent permanent eye damage.

Total solar eclipses occur every year or two worldwide. For the lucky folks in the direct path of the eclipse - the path of totality - it's sure to be an awe-inspiring and otherworldly event. "It's nearly as if night has fallen, but it's a little closer to deep twilight".

"Extending the observing time and going to very high altitude might allow us to see a few events or track waves that would be essentially invisible in just two minutes of observations from the ground".

The temperature drops, and breezes kick up or die down.
