Total solar eclipse viewing party planned in Palmyra

Total solar eclipse viewing party planned in Palmyra

Come with eclipse-related questions that you want answered. Boy, you are so wrong.

Wyoming is one in several states in the line of the total eclipse. Teachers can learn if their schools are in the path of totality, exactly what time it will happen in their area, and what their students can expect to see. Idaho According to NASA, the city will have four designated viewing locations - Old Butte Park, Tautphaus Park, Freeman Park and Community Park. More than two million eclipse glasses will be given out free of charge by over 7,000 public libraries across the U.S. To find out if a library near you is participating in the giveaway program, which is being mounted with help from the National Center for Interactive Learning.

Dr. Fitzgerald says that directly viewing the sun can cause blindness and special solar eclipse glasses are needed.

The other reason is that total solar eclipses aren't visible every month.

Spend a long weekend in this lovely town and hike various trails, go fishing, kayaking, tubing or just coast down the Tallulah River, which feeds into Lake Burton - another great spot to view the eclipse from.

NASA estimates more than 300 million people in the United States potentially could directly view the total solar eclipse on August 21. The community will be in darkness as the moon passes across and completely covers the sun for approximately 2 1/2 minutes. May the shadow of the moon fall on a world in peace.

NASA has provided a list of reputable vendors for solar filters and viewers.

The only exception to that rule is if you are in what's called the "path of totality", the 70-mile-wide strip that will slice a thin line from OR to SC. "Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun". The relatively thin path of totality will sweep across portions of 14 USA states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC.

The result is that the sun and the moon appear to be the same size from our perspective.

VALLEY- As America gears up for the upcoming solar eclipse, there are a few vital points to remember when it comes to protecting your eyes and those of your loved ones. Partial solar eclipses, on the other hand, occur when the alignment is such that the moon blocks only part of the sun, and these can occur more frequently.
