Solar eclipse event slated for library

Solar eclipse viewing party planned

Thus, the moon will cast a shadow on Earth. It's on there that teachers (or anybody, really) can download lesson plans to teach about the solar eclipse, which includes video explanations created for children.

A total solar eclipse will be plunging parts of the US on August 21, into darkness as the moon will be passing directly in front of the sun.

During the solar eclipse, the moon will pass between the sun and earth, blocking the light of the sun.

This is why there is a narrow belt where there is a total eclipse. Google says these glasses "meet NASA's standards and have extremely dark lenses as they were made by Rainbow Symphony", so there's no risk of damaging your eye sight while using them.

Lunar Eclipses happen two to four times a year, but solar eclipses occur about every 18 months. It will progress until the greatest eclipse at 2:20 a.m. on August 8.

The MV-22 assigned to VMM-265 squadron aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard "entered the water" during routine operations. Last month, a cargo plane carrying 15 Marines and one sailor crashed in western MS , killing all aboard.

The next total solar eclipse won't pass across the US for 7 years after this one.

Though Texas may not be in the path of totality where the total solar eclipse can be viewed, which stretches from OR to South Carolina, NASA says Texas and everyone else in North America will still be able to experience at least a partial eclipse. If you were born in 1980 then assuming you live until 100 means you will have 37 more opportunities to see a total solar eclipse.

WSB-TV is your home for everything Total Solar Eclipse. The path of totality will roll across the entire US, through 14 states from OR to SC. There is a 70-mile wide "totality zone" stretching from the northwest to the east coast in which people will experience a total eclipse.

"For lunar eclipses, you can stare at the moon all you want".

If you are planning on observing the eclipse, the most important thing to remember is to never look directly at the Sun unless you have proper protection for your eyes.
