Naturalists will help visitors view the eclipse through special equipment, and viewing glasses will be available for purchase. The only time glasses can be taken off is during the total eclipse, when the sun is covered by the moon's shadow.
California Science Center Besides a viewing event on Monday (near the museum's parking structure), the CSC is hosting a two-day Solar Eclipse Festival on Saturday and Sunday, featuring hands-on activities and info about how to prepare to safely view the eclipse come Monday.
For those plants in the eclipse's direct path-from OR east to South Carolina-solar-powered generators will find their power source blocked by the moon for up to three minutes, though they will likely be affected to a lesser extent over the entire three hours surrounding the event.
"This eclipse viewer does not have any ISO certification at all so I would question whether this one is legitimate and if it's effective in protecting my retinas from the solar rays". "The light really shifts". Pawleys Plantation Golf Club and Founders Club at Pawleys Island, which are both in the band of totality, will hold 1:30 p.m. shotgun starts in celebration of the solar event. "You need to wear eclipse glasses any time you are staring at the sun". This event was an annular eclipse, meaning that the moon was positioned further away from the earth and did not completely block out the sunlight. The closest place to view the totality for most Hoosiers is near Hopkinsville, Kentucky. As indicated by the rapid depletion of eclipse-viewing glasses in Aurora, I would guess the library events will be well-attended and with a limited supply of glasses.
About 80 percent of the solar eclipse will be viewable from Frostburg, with the peak time being around 2:40 p.m.
Palmetto Islands County Park opens at 8 a.m. and charges a $2 admission fee, while Old Santee Canal Park opens at 9 a.m. and doesn't charge an admission fee.

9/11 victim identified 16 years after terror attack in New York City
The latest identification follows the use of more sensitive DNA technology since the start of the year. A victim of the 9/11 attacks has been identified, almost 16 years later, medical examiners said.
NASA recommends using special-purpose solar filters such as eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewers for those who want to see the eclipse.
A lot of places around the Midlands are running out of glasses so we took a look to find out which stores still had them in stock. Before that, in 1970, a total solar eclipse skirted the Atlantic coastline from Florida to Virginia. Harris says that if they are the proper glasses, you won't be able to see anything through them except the sun.
Dr. Yudcovitch says don't mess around with them, get a new pair.
Unfortunately, the glasses are too dark to be used for any goal other than viewing the sun. The space agency also discouraged use of homemade filters. It is just as risky now as it is during the eclipse or during any other time. Your peeprs will get a sunburn and you'll regret it, whether now or later.
The Hudson schools enjoyed his program, and now incorporate it into the regular curriculum for all third graders in the district. Mick enjoys explaining space to kids using examples they might recognize from their everyday experiences: sticking your hand out the auto window is a great illustration of wind resistance, for instance.
