Carroll Area Will See 98 Percent Of Aug. 21 Solar Eclipse

An image captured by Arthur Eddington's team of the 1919 eclipse

Doing that and then driving back home on a Monday night does not really make a ton of logistical sense, you know?

The eclipse, or first contact, begins in Jacksonville around 1:17 p.m. Take care looking at the sun no matter where you're watching; you should never, ever look directly into the sun without proper protection.

The alerts come days before the solar eclipse, and as others said they have been duped by fake glasses. That's the least of the ocular problems that can occur. It's called solar retinopathy, and it's like a sunburn on your retina, and causes spots in your vision that may or may not go away.

Filters that are made have a coating that has aluminum chromium and a silver coating. Ordinary sunglasses will not work. A number 14 welding filter would be adequate also. Not only is what I described above so incredibly amazing, but what makes it even more special is how rare it is.

The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable eclipse glasses and handheld viewers on its website - stamped with this approval code.

If customers choose the Amazon route, it is important make sure the glasses will ship in time. Viewing glasses are available at the Bishop Museum's Shop Pacifica, or online.

Hopefully you're a fan of road-tripping, as flights to Nashville from Pittsburgh are around $400 or more to get there in time for the eclipse. If you are standing in the moon's shadow on Earth, you will see the sky darken and feel the temperature drop. The image on the white surface will still give you a great view. But if you take a pinhole and look at the sun with it, all you're going to do is direct those rays where you don't want them inside your eye. This is the first time in 100 years that a total eclipse has crossed the span of the continent.

The military option with North Korea is 'locked and loaded,' Trump says
Long standing tensions between the country have been rising ever since North Korea tested two intercontinental missiles in July. The military was expected to finalize its Guam plan by mid-August and submit it to Kim for consideration, he said.

On Aug. 21 hundreds of thousands of people are expected to travel to Christian County to watch a total solar eclipse. It ends at 3:45pm when the moon moves completely out of the sun's way. That's going to last in this area maybe 1 to 2 minutes.

"We sold out the same day we got them", a salesperson at Lowes told NBC Charlotte.

So, the best piece of advice the AAS has is to purchase solar viewers from vendors they recommend. Eclipse viewing is included with general museum admission.

Anything lower will allow your eyes to be damaged, but NASA says Shade 12 is darker than the filters used for most welding. That's the bad thing.

If you normally wear eyeglasses, put the eclipse-viewing glasses over them or hold the hand-held solar viewer in front of them.

Educate yourself and others about what you may see.
