Prepare Now: American Total Solar Eclipse 21 August 2017
A total solar eclipse will occur on 21 August, Monday, 2017. Total solar eclipse will be visible only within a band across the entire contiguous United States. It was last visible on 8 June 1918 eclipse. This is going to be a most amazing experience you will ever have on this planet – the sun goes out in the daytime!
Let me offer you how best to experience this golden opportunity. A Solar Eclipse occurs when the moon comes in between the Sun and the Earth planet. But a total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s diameter is larger than the Sun’s. It blocks all the direct sunlight and turning into the darkness. I mean it’s WOW experience!!
Click here to know the times and the other details about the eclipse in your area. To experience this most awaited event, you must view it as close to the eclipse centerline as possible. Now which is the centerline?? Centerline is the middle of the narrow total eclipse path extending across the United States from Oregon through Charleston. That is, it will progress eastward through Oregon’s pacific Coast, Salem, OR, Casper, WY, Lincoln, NE, Kansas, Nashville, TN, Columbia, SC, and lastly Charleston.
It is the only place you can undergo the stunning event called “totality”.
If you are planning to travel at centerline to experience the total solar eclipse then keep in mind that thousands of people would be doing the same. While traffic on that day may be quite congested in most of the areas. So be patient and go early if you are planning with your friends and family to participate in this total solar eclipse event.
Caitlin Everhart with the Powerhouse Science Center said, “If you were to stare at it long enough for such a long period of time, you could potentially go blind. And there have been a couple reports of people selling these glasses that aren’t up to the standard.”
The right glasses would have a logo of ISO on it and the number would be 123122. The film on the glasses have a special filtration which reduces the amount of UV light reaches the eyes.
