Commencing at 10:15 a.m. PDT (1:15 p.m. EDT), a lunar shadow 73 miles wide will take one hour and 33 minutes to travel from OR on the west coast to SC on the east, allowing continuous observation for 90 minutes. Sure. ABC7 News, among others, will feature live television coverage of the eclipse starting at 10 a.m. "That doesn't sound like a lot, but when you look in the sky, the apparent size of the moon is about a half a degree".

This forecast will no doubt change, but it's evident that several weather systems could come into play, ending the party in some spots by early that afternoon. Only in areas that see the maximum total eclipse and during the peak eclipse is it safe to remove glasses (and that is a fairly short window).

Whether you want to see the eclipse in totality or partially, you need to do it safely. As the earth rotates, the moon's shadow traces a path across a portion of the earth.

Only remove your solar eclipse glasses during the period of totality. The Great American Solar Eclipse will run from coast to coast and be the first of 3 spectacular eclipses that will occur in the United States over the coming quarter century.

On Aug. 21, the United States will experience its first total solar eclipse since February 26, 1979.

Smith will see his second eclipse on August 21st. NASA has released a map to find out the exact time and how long it will last wherever you are along the path of totality. This particular eclipse is a partial eclipse as viewed from New England.

"I chose this movie to show because it involves a solar eclipse in the story." said Tonya Hartline, Head of Public Services of the library.

Scientists donated telescopes to trained volunteers to capture 90 minutes of the solar eclipse.

Ellison and her husband, Dr. Stephen Ellison, also an optometrist at Gainesville Eye Associates, shared information and tips for those interested in watching the eclipse.

Warning: It is not safe to view the eclipse with the naked eye or with sunglasses!

The City of Ferndale, the Ferndale Library and the Ferndale School District will host a solar eclipse observing event August 21, according to a news release from the city.

Amazon is advising against using a certain brand of solar eclipse glasses that were available on the site, according to an email sent to customers who purchased the glasses.

If you wear prescription glasses, keep them on under your solar eclipse glasses.

Anything lower will allow your eyes to be damaged, but NASA says Shade 12 is darker than the filters used for most welding.
