The start of the partial eclipse, when the moon is first appearing to touch the sun, will occur around 1:21 in the afternoon. But if you have other plans for the evening, you can still snag some eclipse glasses here before the big day. The event is free to those who pre-registered.

To better understand what a total solar eclipse is and what we can expect, I chose to go straight to the source of space science. But Carbondale will see its second total solar eclipse in April 2024.

This time, the path of total eclipse will be about 70 miles wide and begins in OR on the west coast and travels to SC on the east coast, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) reports on its eclipse website, eclipse2017.nasa.gov. The sun will reach its maximum coverage about 1:20 p.m. and stay that way for nearly three minutes. The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m.

Cheap knockoffs may not be safe for your eyes and staring at the sun through them could cause damage you may not realize until later.

As millions of Americans prepare to view the upcoming solar eclipse, vendors are stocking up on - and in some cases running out of - specialized viewers needed to avoid potentially serious and permanent eye damage. "In our area, it is not going to be completely covered; a sliver of the sun will still be showing; normal sunglasses will not be enough".

Remember, you do not need to be in Hopkinsville to see the eclipse. "The last partial solar eclipse for us was in October 2014 and we were hyping the 2017 eclipse at that time during our outreach events".

Half of Republicans would back postponing 2020 election if Trump proposed it
The final and narrowest defeat came after three moderate Senate Republicans joined all Democrats in voting against the bill . Independents, who hold sway in Young's politically diverse district, want a bipartisan approach to health care.

Science Central's gift shop is selling solar eclipse viewing cards for $1.99 each to the public and for $1 each for Science Central members. The Bravas and Ragin' Cajun food trucks also will be parked nearby so people can enjoy food while they watch. So, if you walk through your house and you can still view ordinary household lights through your eclipse glasses or handheld viewer, then that means your device is bogus.

Here's the deal: Glasses that are safe for directly viewing the sun must meet the standard, set by the International Organization for Standardization, and the glasses or viewer will then indicate that they are ISO 12312-2 compliant.

Inspect solar filters before use.

"If you see fuzziness or anything other than that, so everything looks out of focus, throw them away", he said.

Always supervise children using solar filters. And at the new moon, there will be a solar eclipse, when the sun is blocked by the moon. Over the next hour and a half, the moon will slowly move in front of the sun until it nearly completely covers it.

Stores say they may not have more glasses in by the time the eclipse happens on August 21st but to check with the store you are wanting to purchase the glasses from. "They only happen every so many years, and it's the only full one crossing the entire United States in our lifetime", Newman said.
