This extraordinary cosmic spectacle will pass through 13 states, and everyone in the continental USA will have the opportunity to see at least a partial eclipse, making it the most widely viewed American eclipse of all time. This is called earthshine and the same thing applies during a total solar eclipse. "The light will start to decrease, temperature will drop, and then at some point, as you get right before the final moment of totality, there'll be this flash of light which is still too bright to look at, but this is called the diamond ring".
To help celebrate the awe-inspiring sight, the Texas Perot Museum of Nature and Science will be holding a solar eclipse viewing party from noon to 2.00pm. Looking at the sun for even short periods can literally sunburn your cornea and blister the cells, causing painful irritation that if you're lucky goes away. Venus, Mars, and Jupiter will also make an appearance, according to Space, with Mars and Mercury appearing closest to the sun.
The school system has acquired special glasses which are safe for solar viewing to allow students to view the eclipse. The glasses were branded "Solar Eclipse Glasses 2017", and appear to be no longer available for purchase on the site. Some devotees spend virtually all those precious minutes searching! (Find out the exact eclipse time for your area here, and we have separate audio stories above and below for those in the path of the total or partial eclipse, respectively.) Also, we want your eclipse plans, stories and photos. These are known as solar prominences.
Many online sellers are third-party vendors on Amazon, but higher prices and extended shipping dates, some beyond the August 21 eclipse date, are being reported, according to Business Insider.

"On the first day of the month of May, on the day of the Saint Prophet Jeremiah, on Wednesday, during the evening service, there was a sign in the Sun".
The moon is about 400 times smaller than the sun. "It was bad to see this sign of the Lord".
