Easy and 'delicious' way to view the solar eclipse

In Clemson, the total solar eclipse will begin at 1:07 p.m. and end at 4:02 p.m. A 65-mile swath of darkness, the "path of totality" caused by the moon blocking all of the sun except its corona, will darken the OR coast around 10 a.m., rush at 1700 miles per hour across country, and vanish close to 3 p.m. off the coast of SC.

This is the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States since 1979.

Researchers at PSI translated their computer simulations to create a visual representation of what viewers along the path of totality are likely to see as moon blankets the face of the sun on Monday.

The chill in the air will peak about five to 20 minutes after the moon's shadow passes by. West Texas will have about 75 percent totality, so the sun will be mostly blocked but some will remain visible.

Yes, the eclipse can damage your pet's eyes.

A solar eclipse is also said to affect pregnant women in particular. Damage can include a permanent blind spot in the middle of your vision. Orb-weaving spiders in Mexico took down their webs during a total eclipse on July 11, 1991, only to start rebuilding them once the sun reappeared.

Parts of 12 states will be totally darkened; many others will see the sun partly or mostly obscured.

North Korea still needs time to flawless re-entry technology: Seoul
He said he would consider sending a special envoy to North Korea for talks if Pyongyang stopped conducting missile tests. He was elected in May after a decade of conservative rule that saw animosity deepen between the rival Koreas.

While Humboldt County won't get to witness a total eclipse, the astronomers say the coverage should almost complete. This is why everyone's going insane trying to get their hands on some eclipse glasses.

"But it can also damage your eyes, so we are urging people to use extreme caution and only look at a solar eclipse if you have eyewear with a special solar filter".

Jenna Riley at the Arkell Museum and Canajoharie Library says she remembers a solar eclipse in 1994, when she was in kindergarten.

According to the American Astronomical Society (AAS), glasses should have a manufacturer label and ISO number 12312-2.

Scientists advise using solar eclipse glasses when viewing the 2017 solar eclipse. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter. The solar eclipse already has people excited as enthusiastic explorers are prepping to watch the total solar eclipse live on Monday (August 21). Experts say there's no need to outfit your dogs and cats with eclipse glasses. Although the path of totality will only pass through 14 states in the USA, the solar eclipse 2017 can still be viewed in parts of South America, Africa and Europe.
