Here's how to get free glasses for upcoming solar eclipse

The evening sky over this part of the world is buzzing with celestial activity, including the partial Lunar Eclipse on the evening of Aug.7.

Experts say the eclipse is expected to be the most photographed in history.

Additional information on the Solar Eclipse.

Stencel will be traveling to Wyoming to see the eclipse in its totality. To avoid permanent damage to your eyes, make sure you choose special viewing glasses.

Halfway through the sky spectacle, anyone within a roughly 70-mile-wide path from OR to SC will experience a brief total eclipse, when the moon completely blocks the sun's bright face for up to 2 minutes 40 seconds according to NASA.

"Even when 99 percent of the sun's surface (the photosphere) is obscured during the partial phases of a solar eclipse, the remaining crescent Sun is still intense enough to cause a retinal burn".

If you'd like a more thorough experience, the newly opened Frost Museum of Science in downtown Miami is holding an event in the Science Plaza.

But former foreign minister Delcy Rodriguez, who will be the new assembly's president, said in an opening speech: "There is no humanitarian crisis here".

The path of totality will start in OR, sweeping across 14 states and end north of Charleston, South Carolina. Those happen when the moon only covered a sliver of the sun.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon align in an nearly straight line. The eclipse will end at 4:02 p.m.

Google and UC Berkeley teamed up to produce an awesome visualization of the eclipse.

Also, try typing in an area that will be in the "path of totality" - Nashville, Portland, Columbia or Kansas City just to name a few. However, that seems quite unlikely.

Time: 12 3 p.m.

Fingers crossed Mother Nature will be on our side. The Great American Total Solar Eclipse of Aug.21 is not visible here.

This upcoming solar eclipse is different though. Another eclipse in August 2045 will pass directly over Colorado.
