Solar Eclipse Safety

The Big Eclipse

Lancaster said you can expect to see a reddish colored sky in metro Atlanta lasting only a couple of minutes, and in the mountains there will be near-darkness in the path of the total eclipse.

The sun is set to disappear in Buies Creek around 2:45 p.m. on August 21, according to Jason Ezell's calculations and a map provided by NASA. The next time a total solar eclipse will come any closer to us is in 2045 when totality will be visible in Northern California. Just cross your fingers it isn't cloudy. The science teacher from Tenino, Washington, is planning to arrive in the morning of the solar eclipse in Prineviile, Oregon.

Type in your location in the simulator and watch the progression of the total solar eclipse as it will appear in your area. "The same is true for the temporary dimming during a total solar eclipse", NASA said. "It's easy to forget everything that's happening in space".

The physicist's 90-minute, multi-media lecture was scheduled as a way to provide information about the upcoming celestial event.

After his visit to China, Brau will be busy the day of the eclipse. Over the years, he's journeyed to North Carolina (1970), Turkey (2006), Romania (1999) and Nova Scotia (1972) - the latter eclipse made famous in the Carly Simon song, "You're So Vain".

On, for instance, the run on eclipse glasses has left many models out of stock directly from the online retailer, but they continue to be available through third-party sellers.

There will be entertainment as well as food trucks. Winds will also lighten while the eclipse is happening. Museum admission is required for indoor activities. The process will end shortly after 4 p.m.

As the total solar eclipse approaches, demand for safe viewing glasses has spiked and experts are warning the public to be wary of unsafe knockoffs.

Hawaii experienced a total solar eclipse in 1991. The eclipse will reach its peak at 1:17 p.m.

Viewers can also see the eclipse through a filter or pinhole projection system.

Ophthalmologist Tomas Lopez of Eyecare Associates in Albany and Corvallis met with about two dozen mid-valley eyecare and health care professionals last Wednesday to go over information on the August 21 eclipse and possible effects on patients.

When shadow bands do occur, they can be hard to spot since they are often dim, so people trying to view them should set up a large white poster board, piece of plastic or bed sheet at their viewing site. The shadow of the moon first touches Georgia at 2:34 p.m. EDT and leaves the state at 2:40 p.m. EDT.

But experts say if you don't wear solar filters while you watch the eclipse, you can suffer devastating damage to your eyes. Total solar eclipses occur somewhere on Earth about every 18 months, but because most of Earth is covered in water, those events are rarely over land and seldom witnessed.

Rice plans to take a road trip to Sweetwater, Tennessee, to see the full eclipse.
