Solar eclipse glossary: 21 terms to make you sound like an expert

For thousands of years, in fact, solar eclipses traumatized cultures around the world.

"This rare event will be exciting and even better when you view the eclipse safely", Alesha Hernandez, the FTC's consumer education specialist, wrote in a blog post.

Turn on your vehicle's headlights during the eclipse event.

"Every astronomer worth his salt is decamping for somewhere along the eclipse line", said Raymond J. Dague, observatory director for the amateur sky-watchers. That can easily be interpreted as, "this event is unsafe and should not be watched". The direction and nature of the waves observed will also help distinguish between competing models of coronal heating. "State leaders are predicting one million people coming into the path", Wickes says.

For most viewers, the August 21, 2017, total solar eclipse will last less than two and half minutes. It will start on the West Coast and end on the East Coast.

"The path of totality", which is the shadow of the total solar eclipse will run right through the middle of the United States and the best place to experience the solar eclipse will be Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC. A global community of 32,000 medical doctors, we protect sight and empower lives by setting the standards for ophthalmic education and advocating for our patients and the public. The 18-seat cafe - which had its grand opening last August 21 - is named for this eclipse and the one coming up in 2024. And for that, he says the tried-and-true pin hole projector method is safest. "Some people are giving them out for free, or you can buy them for a dollar or two".

This would be an appropriate moment for an Irish benediction about the road rising up to meet you and having the wind at your back, but like other Irishmen around town, I'll just keep my fingers crossed that the fest finds a way to go on.

It's also important to make sure the lenses are not scratched or damaged.

Taylor Swift groping case
This case highlights the importance of sexual assault and it's a great experience for girls to see that it will not be tolerated. Fans lined up outside the courtroom holding tokens, hoping to catch a glimpse of the star during the nine-day trial.

Dr. John Heltsley, optometrist with Heltsley Eye Care, said in a news release that solar retinopathy could occur without any sensation of pain because the retina doesn't have pain receptors, and the injury could be temporary or permanent.

During the eclipse it is risky to look at the sun without proper protection. The sun is completely blocked by the moon and there's only a little halo around it called the corona.

"You've got to see it while it's happening", Dague said.

While you can not completely prepare yourself for the sight of a total solar eclipse, ophthalmologists-physicians who specialize in medical and surgical eye care-want you to be prepared with proper eye protection. Because let's face it: we all know how hard it is to take a good picture in the dark. No, you can't just wear sunglasses. Cut your glasses in half and tape one eyepiece over your smartphone camera lens.

"Before pointing your camera at the sun, you need to get a special-purpose solar filter and put it over the camera lens", said Russell N. Van Gelder, M.D., Ph.D., a clinical spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

This will be the first total solar eclipse in the U.S. since 1979, and is 99 years since a total solar eclipse was visible from coast to coast. Zoom out to see the path for the entire nation, or search for your address by entering it at the magnifying glass on the lower left. Hotels and camping grounds will be overflowing and - if you can still get a spot - it won't be cheap.

If you'd like to enjoy the eclipse at the library, chairs will be set up outside and complimentary coffee will be available.
