Sydney stargazers preparing for partial lunar eclipse
Tennessee is one of 12 states in the so-called "path of totality", a swath of the country from OR to SC where the entire sun will be eclipsed by the moon for about two minutes.
The 70-mile-wide path of totality spans from OR to SC, so for people viewing the celestial event in Washington, you will need to wear special-purpose solar filters like eclipse glasses OR hand-held solar viewers the entire time.
If you are traveling to a location where the total eclipseis visible, you should remove the glasses once the sun is completely covered by the moon and put them back on at the first sign of direct sunlight. That's when the moon only partially blocks the sun and creates a partial solar eclipse, appearing to take a bite out of the sun's disk.
The next one we are scheduled to witness in the United Kingdom will be on June 10, 2021, although it will just be a partial eclipse.

"I actually can't remember the last time I got to see an eclipse like this".
If you've already purchased a pair of specs, AAS has a tip for testing them out. No part of the solar eclipse will be visible from New Zealand. Everyone in the contiguous US will be able to see at least a partial eclipse. The path of totality is a relatively thin ribbon, around 70 miles wide, that will cross the US from West to East.
Meanwhile, Moon's shadow will start covering the Sun at around 12:05 PM ET (9:05 AM PT) on the OR coast of the continental US. Totality begins there at 10:16 a.m. PDT. Over the course of 90 minutes, the eclipse will move across Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and SC.
What challenge does the Moon offer us, and the heroes and kings and leaders in such a gesture?
When Can You See It?
- Rover Boat Tours, a 4.5-star experience, according TripAdvisor users, is offering a Total Eclipse Cruise, a tour along the smooth inland waters leading to a barrier island where Winyah Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean.
The Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand was not overwhelmed, describing the two lunar eclipses in 2017 as "very paltry affairs".
How Can You See It?
That could severely hurt your eyes. Sunglasses are not safe to wear when looking at the sun during an eclipse.
