The continental United States will have an wonderful celestial show August 21, a solar eclipse.

Baily's beads recede as the very last rays of sunlight create a brief "diamond ring" flash around the Moon. That signals the start of Second Contact. The moon will slowly and silently creep over the disk of the sun.

Suddenly, in the complete darkness, constellations will appear.

Atkinson explained burning a retina, which can occur if a person looks directly at the sun without protection, is painless. I can't stress this enough...some say it's nearly life see something that odds are you may never see again. Keeping in mind that the earth's orbit fluctuates and the moon's orbit has slight variations every takes a small miracle to get one in your community.
