  • Arlington Solar Eclipse: What You Need To Know

You can click on the "plus" button at the bottom of the screen and type in any city you want, and add it to the list of cities, like adding a bookmark. Do not look through them unless they have a solar filter of their own installed.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks the Sun which reveals the Sun's outer atmosphere-the corona.

The total eclipse will not pass directly over Virginia, but about 81 percent of the sun's surface will be eclipsed in the Washington, D.C. area, according to the news release.

You should not use solar viewing glasses with any optical devices because the magnified sunlight will damage the glasses, and consequently your eyes.

Neither Mercury nor Venus have moons.

What happens during a solar eclipse? During these events, the moon moves in front of the sun, but in a transit where it only covers the center of sun (because the orbits of the two bodies are such that they are farther away from each other). Parts of South America, Africa, Europe and Asia will also experience a partial eclipse.

The sun will rise in Honolulu at 6:20 a.m. on the morning of august 21 in partial eclipse, with about one-third of the sun's disk blocked by the moon. So, the last total eclipse seen on the east coast AND west coast was almost 100 years ago.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, officials say anyone in the path of totality "can see one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse". "This will allow all students to experience the peak of the eclipse in an educational environment while also addressing safety concerns related to midday darkness and distracted drivers".

The event is aimed toward children, with the first 20 receiving special eclipse viewing glasses from NASA, but Parnell knows the "great American eclipse" will be of interest to adults too.

"We want everyone to enjoy this event", Dr. Podoll said. Calculations show that it will take about 1000 years for every geographic location in the Lower-48 to be able to view a total solar eclipse.

On Aug. 21, it's lights out, if just for a few minutes - that's when the moon will block the sun in a total solar eclipse.
