The last total solar eclipse in the continental United States was on the morning of February 26, 1979.
"I'm a lifelong learner, and it's something interesting and something that's happening now".
"I'm surprised at how few Montana sites there are", she said.
Even if it is smoky or cloudy the eclipse will happen and safety is the number one goal.
The path of totality for the August 21 eclipse will reach a maximum width of 71 miles and stretch in a southeasterly route from the Pacific Northwest to the middle of the Atlantic coastal plain, passing over 14 states, including Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina.
"A total solar eclipse is only visible from a small area on Earth", NASA said on its website. The sun will look like a dark hole in the sky.
"Unfortunately, when it comes to safety with a solar eclipse, 99.9 percent coverage means a 0.1 percent area of the sun that is still uncovered and is every bit as risky", Chou said. The last time a total solar eclipse touched only the US was in 1257 (of course, the U.S as a country didn't yet exist) and it won't happen again until 2316. He'll be in OR for his 19th total solar eclipse.
Even though Canyon County will witness a 99.5 percent eclipse, experts argue the spectacle in totality is worth the trip. If you're fortunate enough to have a cable TV system that has the NASA channel, you can probably watch it there. What you see will vary greatly depending on your location. The sun will reach its maximum coverage about 1:20 p.m. and stay that way for nearly three minutes.
I know it takes will power, but don't look at it. "If you stare at the sun and you allow that light to get into your eye, you can in fact go blind", Dr. Ed Krupp said. Under normal conditions, the corona can not be seen from the ground because it is overwhelmed by the brightness of the sun's main disk, the photosphere.

Permanent damage can occur just from glancing at the sun.
The college will have a solar telescope set up on campus the day of the eclipse for people to view it. The solar filters, which must meet the worldwide standard ISO 12312-2, are used in eclipse glasses and hand-held filters. Just keep in mind to wear safety glasses. The app maker suggests you can instead use the filter in the app, and your smartphone camera to look up at the sun.
Here's a test, put on the glasses and if you can see the room you're in you probably shouldn't use those glasses to look at the sun. Parents are advised to supervise children to ensure they use their solar protection properly.
Several libraries are giving away the glasses for free.
"It's a big event".
If we get a new moon every month, why don't we have a solar eclipse every month? Upload your eclipse images to NASA's Eclipse Flickr Gallery and relive the eclipse through other peoples' images. It's a rare experience that's about to become more common, and if eclipse chasers are to be believed, one that will leave a lot of us in speechless awe. The southern half of Wyandotte County Lake at 91st and Leavenworth Road is not in the totality area, while the northern half is, according to the map. "Anyone in the path of totality will see it for about 2 ½ minutes, but the strength is in the network". Stars also can appear.
But no matter how people react in the face of totality, the eclipse will certainly have a profound impact on the United States, one that might be felt for generations to come. So on August 10 in 1999, there was a total eclipse of the sun.
"It's a good thing to have this coincide with the first day of school", she said. There are also tips on how to make an old-fashioned pinhole projector for viewing. Paul Hamill, a professor of Earth science at MCC, also is traveling to see the eclipse but did not yet know where he was going at the beginning of the week. "My wife thinks I'm nuts", Hamill said.
