Solar spectacles needed for safe viewing of eclipse

It will be tough eclipsing this eclipse.
On Aug. 21, the greater part of North America will experience a solar eclipse, when the moon blocks the sun from Earth's view. During a partial solar eclipse, the sun is not almost as bright, so the temptation is to stare at the sun for too long a time. "That's going to be pretty neat, we'll have a couple of us shooting that".
And the party planning is at full tilt from OR to SC. The moon goes around the Earth, the Earth goes around the sun, we know those periods very precisely. Minor league baseball teams will halt play for "eclipse delays" in Salem, Oregon, and elsewhere.
Programming begins at noon EDT with a preview show hosted from Charleston, South Carolina.
At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society will offer more information about solar eclipses and show people how to make a pinhole eclipse viewer during the nonprofit group's general meeting at the main branch of the Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza.
Scientists are also going gaga. If you're fortunate enough to have a cable TV system that has the NASA channel, you can probably watch it there. "The people who see the total eclipse are in the center of the moon's shadow when it hits Earth". Ships and planes will also catch the action. While these are only projections, NASA says the map is more accurate this year than ever before.

If you happen to be in Clayton, Ga., the schedule for viewing is 1:06 p.m. and totality ends at 2:38 p.m. But because of that eight-hour difference, it didn't take place over the US, it took place over Europe. When totality is ending, then it's time to put them back on. A shoebox can work, but just two pieces of cardboard held a distance apart can work too. You know, the one we're supposed to wear to protect our eyes from the blazing sun. But eye protection is needed during the partial eclipse before and after. Highway officials already are cautioning travelers to be patient and, yes, avoid eclipses in judgment. There's another good chance to see a total eclipse in Oklahoma on April 8, 2024. Minneapolis will see 86 percent of the sun covered, Miami sees 82 percent, Montreal gets 66 percent, while Mexico City sees 38 percent.
