Here's Why A Total Solar Eclipse Is So Unusual

US in rare bull's-eye for total solar eclipse on Aug. 21

"You miss out on everything". The filters are made to let you safely look directly at the sun by reducing the levels of harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation hitting your eyes. The path of totality will stretch across 12 states in an almost-70-mile-wide swath, starting in OR and ending in SC. 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.

Last night's astrological wonder was a partial eclipse - meaning only part of the moon passed through the Earth's shadow. Lee's Summit will get 99.7 percent and Raytown 99.8 percent. Here is NASA's table of eclipse times.

The values in this analysis reflect utility-scale generators of at least one megawatt of capacity and do not include small-scale solar PV systems or utility-scale solar thermal generators, which in 2016 provided 0.5% and 0.1% of total USA electricity generation, respectively, compared with utility-scale solar PV, which provided 0.8%. But recently the American Astronomical Society issued a warning indicating such a label is no longer adequate to verify glasses' safety, citing "alarming reports of potentially unsafe eclipse viewers flooding the market".

Satellites and ground telescopes will also aim at the sun and at the moon's shadow cutting a swath some 60 to 70 miles wide (97 to 113 kilometers) across the land.

Luckily, there are literally dozens of eclipse glasses you can use to protect your eyes from the sun's strong rays. For the US, the next total solar eclipse will occur on April 8, 2024. The light of day will dim some.

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.

"A blind spot would be an area in your vision where you're not seeing, or it is dark gray or black", said Podoll. "The sun is just so bright".

For some Christians, they're excited because they see the August 21 total solar eclipse as a sign of the end times - more about their theories here.

"It dawned on me when STEM became a buzzword there could be a program I could offer, that could get kids excited about kids in STEM, so I developed that and took it around to (local school) principals", he said.

Here's how to get free glasses for upcoming solar eclipse
The path of totality will start in OR , sweeping across 14 states and end north of Charleston, South Carolina. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon align in an nearly straight line.

People from across the globe are reportedly making plans to travel to Kentucky because it is said to have some of the best seats in the country to watch the phenomenon. "They're so very, very wrong".

The path of totality only affects 17 utility-scale solar PV generators, mostly in eastern Oregon. The eclipse will conclude about 4 p.m.

You've only got a few weeks left to shop, so don't wait until the last minute and, in your rush, possibly get scammed. Alaska will see it cover 49 percent. What is a solar eclipse?

"You can't use sunglasses; you can't use welder's goggles", Mick said.

"You go there, and you walk up to the edge of the Grand Canyon for the first time: The beauty of it". "You just need to sit back and take it all in". It's like waves of goose bumps all over your body.

"We haven't had an eclipse cross the United States like this in almost 100 years", says CfA spokesperson Tyler Jump.

Podoll explains the proper way to view the partial eclipse with the approved viewing glasses. "There are some things that people ought to see in their lifetimes, right?" "It's something you remember your entire life and you will tell stories to your grandchildren about it", Espenak added.

"Now I want you to imagine that what you're seeing is the ocean over the Grand Canyon, but with a volcano in the middle of that, erupting". People cry because they have never seen anything like it.
