What you need to know about the total solar eclipse

J.R. Brooks

This is first total solar eclipse to cross the United States coast-to-coast in 99 years, although some parts of the United States have experienced total solar eclipses since then, most notably in 1979.

On Aug. 21, a celestial event will occur across the continental United States, moving from the coast of OR (at 10:15 a.m. PDT) to South Carolina's shore (around 2:50 p.m. EDT).

"When the moon is blocking the sun during a complete darkness, regions in the world that are in direct paths of total darkness overnight for almost three minutes", said Steve Clarke, director of Heliophysics Department NASA in Washington, said in politics. And the total solar eclipse won't even have Beyonce in the halftime show.

Astronomy instructor Michael L. Allen poses in the WSU Planetarium Monday, July 31, 2017, with a depiction of the moon crossing in front of the sun, as will happen August 21 when a solar eclipse crosses America.

With less than four weeks before the total solar eclipse, there are a number of precautions both residents and travelers to the area should be aware of to experience the event safely.

As per the report released by the NASA scientists, who have said that they will use the research plane to capture crystal-clear images of the Sun's Corona, and also its outer atmosphere from the next month, which is possible due to its twin telescopes. "And what better place to see the eclipse?"

Likewise, in Charleston, S.C., the eclipse will start at 1:16 p.m., while the totality will start at 2:46 p.m. and will end just shy of 2:48 p.m. "Just before it's over, you'll see beads of light starting to form on the trailing edge". You can also purchase eclipse glasses from the Tellus store.

Naturally, the study points out that Tesla owners are "fanatical", regardless of where they live or what model they bought. American automaker, Tesla has unveiled the Tesla Model 3 , described as the world's cheapest fully electric vehicle .

Britons have to wait much longer as the UK's next total solar eclipse is not until 2090.

Of course, the moment of totality in most locations lasts for a mere minute or two.

Parts of 14 states will witness the solar spectacle, which is being described as the Great American Eclipse. In this method, you don't look directly at the sun, but at a projection on a piece of paper or even the ground.

To view the whole eclipse, special glasses will be needed that are a thousand times darker than sunglasses, letting in only 1 percent of the sunlight, Clemson University's Dr.

The eclipse will last less than three minutes, so your window for getting the ideal photo is very small.

The partial lunar eclipse will be seen from 10.52pm on August 7 to 12.48am on August 8 while penumbral eclipse will be visible from 9.20pm to 2.21am for about 5.1 hours.
