The total solar eclipse is the first we've been able view from coast to coast since 1918, and it begins on the coast of OR at 10:15 a.m. PT on August 21.

Are You a "Twilight" Buff?! "The same is the case for the solar eclipse". I find it mind blowing that the moon is just the right distance from Earth (240,000 miles) so that is appears to be the same size as the sun.

So why all the hype about the eclipse coming up on August 21? Known as a total solar eclipse, the moon will pass directly between Earth and the sun, completely blocking the view of our favorite star.

On Aug. 21 hundreds of thousands of people are expected to travel to Christian County to watch a total solar eclipse. Depending on how long you gazed at the sun and how badly the retinal cells were damaged, this spot will either fade away in time or remain permanent.

The last time this happened, it was February 26, 2017, and it was visible across South America in the morning and Southern Africa at night. Looking directly at the sun during a solar eclipse puts you at risk of temporarily or permanently damaging your vision, primarily due to retinal burns.

And in the, please don't even consider an app like for a moment - Solar Eclipse glasses (99 cents) says it is handy when stores have run out of solar glasses. The lenses of these paper or plastic framed glasses will be so obscuring that unless you are looking at something as bright as the sun, you won't see anything at all.

Bring a pair of solar viewing glasses. The SDSU Society of Physics Students will host a campus viewing session near the west entrance to the Student Union Aug. 21 and will have free eclipse glasses available at that location starting the morning of the event. So your regular sunglasses, or sunglasses that your mother got after her cataract surgery, are not going to protect the eyes.

Is there anytime during the eclipse that people can look up at the sun, not AT the sun, but at the eclipse during?

Regardless of one's viewing plans, remember during the eclipse to not look directly into the sun without proper eye protection.

Merlo also explains prices can range from a couple cents to a couple of dollars depending on how many you order but he recommends ordering glasses as soon as possible as they are in high demand, in fact many places in the Tri-State are still sold out.
