The Great American Eclipse is only one month away!

The Great American Eclipse is only one month away!

On August 21, the continental United States will see its first total solar eclipse in 38 years.

"Such texts spinning out wild theories about extraterrestrial customs on the basis of our few shared experiences, such as eclipses, were not necessarily an attempt to write an extraterrestrial anthropology", UO historian Vera Keller said. Similarly, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer - the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye (s), causing serious injury. Oregonians are in a unique position to witness this rare celestial event as the moon passes in front of the sun, sending those of us along the path of totality into complete daytime darkness.

During a total solar eclipse, the moon and the sun both appear to be about the same size from the ground.

Q: What will traffic be like on the day of the eclipse? If it's not on those sites, your town is likely not in the eclipse path.

Scott Evans sat down with Doctor Alex Young with the Nasa's Goddard space center in Maryland to find out more about what happens during a total solar eclipse. It's been even longer - 99 years - since a total solar eclipse crossed the country from the Pacific to the Atlantic. A weather station in Zambia recorded a temperature drop of almost 15°F during a solar eclipse in June 2001, and there are reports through history of observers noticing a distinct cooling effect in the midst of a lunar shadow.

Q: Can I see the eclipse in Utah? "The shadows of light filtering through the trees are usually circle shaped but during the eclipse, the light coming through was half moon shaped". The community is invited to attend UT's Solar Sun Day to prepare for viewing the total eclipse.

"While the solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime event, the beauty of the Tennessee River Valley is timeless", says Julie Graham, Tennessee River Valley Mapguide site administrator. "And if you're going to see it, you might as well document it". "The moon's shadow moves at an average speed of 1,600 mph or 28 miles a minute".

With just a month left to go, the buzz in anticipation of the Great American Eclipse of 2017 is real. "The temperature fell and nocturnal animals came out".

The five manufacturers who have received certification in making the solar eclipse glasses are working to make the products. The date and time are still being finalized.
