Protecting your pets during the solar eclipse

Patterns in how eclipses traverse the country mean that some areas, such as the Midwest, get to see many more than others. According to maps on eclipsewise.com, Northeastern Oregon won't experience another eclipse in the path of totality until June 30, 2345.

A total solar eclipse - only visible from a small area on Earth.

The celestial event will see the moon blocking all or parts of the sun for up to three hours from beginning to end as viewed from a given location. The moon in front of the sun looks like a dark disk on top of a larger sun-coloured disk.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon's path of orbit crosses directly between the sun and the Earth, casting a shadow on the Earth's surface.

If you don't feel like going outside and waiting for the partial eclipse in MI, be sure to watch the live stream here on ClickOnDetroit. The eclipse will last longest near Carbondale, Illinois for 2.44 minutes. He said he has kept a mental countdown for the past five years and is excited for the event.

For those not in the stretch that will witness the total eclipse, there is still an opportunity to view a partial eclipse. For many it will give them a nice connection to science.

To make the event special for CCC students, staff created plastic pinhole projectors in the shape of North Carolina.

People may think that since the sun will be 98 percent covered, it is safe to look at it directly, but that is not the case, Thompson said.

Maybe this eclipse is what is making people so insane lately, kind of like during a full moon.

The sun gives off lots of light (visible and invisible) that is not good for eyes.

Looking directly at the sun is unsafe, so those planning to observe the solar eclipse should obtain a pair of solar viewing glasses before viewing.

Another alternative is building simple solar eclipse viewers out of cardboard boxes, paper, and aluminum foil for safely viewing the eclipse. The country won't get another coast-to-coast eclipse until August 12, 2045 and there's plenty of time to plan for that. The organizers were emphasizing the need for eye protection, too. Even if you plan to take pictures or video, you have to take precautions while looking through the lens or risk permanent damage or blindness. People with those glasses have been contacted by the company, according to Fortune Magazine. They must meet a very specific worldwide standard known as ISO 12312-2. From 9 am to 1 pm PT on Monday, NASA will film from 12 cities for its feature "Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA". As a child, did you ever take a magnifying glass and use it to focus sunlight onto something on the ground? The observatory will not be doing any public activities for the eclipse, he said, but they will all be looking at it.

Some scientific websites say a solar eclipse can happen somewhere in the world as much as twice a year. There are solar telescopes designed with the filter inside, as well. Do not look at the partial eclipse without proper filtration.
