Are You Planning To Travel To See The 'Eclipse Across America'?

Norah Moran- NASA- Johnson

The total solar eclipse will occur on Monday, Aug. 21 and will be visible in totality only within a specific band across the United States with Excelsior Springs listed as a prime viewing location. However for those under the "path of totality"-a 70-mile-wide diagonal band running from OR through Kansas and Tennessee and ending in South Carolina-there will be a period of about two to three minutes of total darkness, happening between about 10:15 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. local time, depending on the location".

Eclipse glasses will first be given to those who attend the solar eclipse classes.

The result is an unnatural, spooky twilight during the day.The eclipse's path of totality will expand over parts of 12 states and Auburn is expected to get a good partial view.

"And that's actually the easiest way to observe a partial eclipse, is just to find a place where sunlight is coming through some leaves", says Lattis. "Look anywhere there's a pinhole image, where the sun shines through a little crevice or something like that". And you may want to get prepared now because a total solar eclipse doesn't happen very often.

Sen. Cory Gardner's bad votes on Obamacare repeal and replace
He walked onto the Senate floor to a standing ovation, offering a critically needed vote to help Republicans break the deadlock. Their "no" votes signaled that the so-called "clean repeal" bill did not have the support from key Republican senators.

The sun can not be safely viewed with the naked eye. The sunlight shines on the back side of the moon, so you won't be able to see it from earth.

"The corona itself has this kind of iridescent appearance, and we don't really know why", says Lattis.

Harold Henderson is the director of the Lake Afton Public Observatory.

NASA will send up cards, or coupons, with dried bacteria on them to see how the bacteria reacts during eclipse conditions. It will be pretty close with 83% of the sun obscured at peak.

Other groups will also be using the eclipse to try and measure the sun's diameter, Quaglia said, including the International Occulting Timing Association, which will analyze smartphone videos taken at intervals perpendicular to the eclipse path in Nebraska.

This will be the first time totality will contact the lower 48 United States since 1979, and the first coast-to-coast path of totality since 1918.
