"This is when the light from the sun is shining through the valleys on the moon, so we're actually seeing structure on the moon for that". The moon's shadow will progress until the total solar eclipse should occur at about 2:30 p.m. and will last about 90 seconds. When the period of total eclipse ends for viewers near Charleston, S.C., it will be 2:49 p.m. both there and here in Baltimore.
You've probably never seen anything in the world like a total solar eclipse. It is notsafe to view the eclipse with regular sunglasses.

"Even that 1% of the sun's energy will be enough to potentially damage your eye", Merlo says.
Don't attempt to view the eclipse through any other means, whether it's a camera, telescope, binoculars or other device. The filter should always go on the front of the device. If you notice any symptoms after viewing the solar eclipse, seek immediate help from your eye care professional.
