Williams said the book has showed her what to expect with the August 21 eclipse. Dr. Williams will demonstrate what will happen during the eclipse, talk about what to expect on August 21st, and give several helpful tips for eclipse viewing.

Saturday, Aug. 19 - Calvert City's location will have eclipse stations and activities going on throughout the day. Here is the progression of time of the eclipse.

However, the total solar eclipse will also have imperceptible effects, such as the sudden loss of extreme ultraviolet radiation from the Sun, which generates the ionised layer of Earth's atmosphere, called the ionosphere.

"Spanish moss is the sun, really rough cardboard is the moon, and the Earth is smooth cardboard with sand to create the continents", Runyon told ABC News.

It will be the first total solar eclipse in 99 years to cross coast-to-coast and the first to pass through any part of the Lower 48 states in 38 years. Eclipses don't last long, however.

People across the USA will be treated to a rare sight Monday, Aug. 21 as a total solar eclipse makes its way from Lincoln Way, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. The amount of remaining sunlight is equivalent to that which Mars regularly receives.

Leonard Bates was nine years old when he saw his first eclipse. He'll be in OR for his 19th total solar eclipse.

Real Madrid wouldn't sell Ronaldo for his weight in gold, says Perez
Following what was his third Super Cup defeat as a manager, Mourinho gave his loser's medal to a child in the crowd. Yet United's starting XI cost €417 million (S$667 million), compared to Real's €273 million.

The escalation provided an excuse for a selloff many investors consider overdue, some investors and analysts said. Investors said the week's swings were as much a result of earnings as geopolitics.

They say mom was right: You can damage your eyes staring at the sun, even the slimmest sliver of it.

They'll be participating in the "Our Reservation: Our Eclipse" competition, a collaboration between the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and the Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium, which is using NASA grant money to bring in about 100 kids from Oregon, Washington, Idaho and northern California. I had observed the sun before with my small telescope using a "solar filter" with my eyepiece. But if you're not wearing certified eclipse glasses, you could be in danger of damaging your eyes. During an eclipse, astronomers get an exceptional chance to study the photosphere "just up to a hundred miles from the sun's surface", she said.

If you've already ordered glasses online, it might be a good idea to check when they're supposed to be delivered. Lowell Observatory, for instance, is selling them for $2 each in its Starry Skies Gift Shop. "In our area, it is not going to be completely covered; a sliver of the sun will still be showing; normal sunglasses will not be enough".

And guess what: You can't hold binoculars or other magnifying devices over your eclipse glasses, either. Needless to say, viewing will require the proper precautions with filters to protect your eyes.

That means the next generation won't just be accustomed to awe-inspiring acts of the universe, but also to widespread shared experiences, ones that blur our lines of division and bring us under the universal umbrella of human beings, residents of Earth.

Below see a map from NASA that previews how the eclipse will look in cities including Seattle.

Other versions of a pinhole viewer need no preparation and may be found in most kitchens. With the instrument mounted on a tripod and pointing at the Sun, sunlight will shine through the eyepiece onto a piece of paper, which serves as an observing screen.
