"Unless you have a relative living there, you may have to stay outside the area and drive in", he says.

It's definitely an event you'll want to photograph to have the memories for ever. But unlike in horseshoes, being close counts, too. According to NASA, this is a "celestial coincidence", as the sun is about 400 times wider than the moon and about 400 times farther away.

The light will change pretty drastically as the eclipse happens. The moon will cast its shadow onto the earth's surface. The eclipse will travel across the entire continent, but its first landfall is in OR, where it can be seen from within a band that stretches about 60 miles wide and includes Corvallis, Prineville and Baker City. In the spirit of southern hospitality, Hiiawassee, GA is hosting a Total Solar Eclipse Tailgating Party featuring a presentation by the Atlanta Astronomy Club, live music, and vendors for a fun, family event. It will take about an hour and a half for the eclipse to travel across the sky from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic. If you are in a spot where you can see it, the total eclipse will last between one and three minutes depending on your location.

Total and annular eclipses through 2020.

"This is the first time we're able to use measurements from the ground and from space to simulate the moon's shadow going across the face of Earth in the U.S. and calculating energy reaching the Earth", Wen said.

The moon orbits the earth. As a result, the moon's shadow usually misses the earth as it passes above or below. The point of greatest duration is expected south of Carbondale.

The USA's best solar eclipse ever is coming August 21. And none of the solar eclipses the rest of this century will be visible from Eastern Washington. Looking directly at the eclipse without proper protection (eclipse glasses with ISO 12312-2), can lead to solar retinopathy - damage to the eye's retina.

Q: What will traffic be like on the day of the eclipse? These include your family and friends watching the eclipse, seeing the reflection of the eclipse. The event will feature arts and crafts vendors, as well as food and entertainment. School lets out during the time of day when it will be most risky to look at the sun.

NASA warned people not to use the untrustworthy companies made risky eclipse glasses.

Just make sure safely store the glasses - any scratches or damage to the lens will ruin the filters.

Viewing starts at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2 pm.

Do not watch the uneclipsed sun via the unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or through other optical devices.

Everyone in the United States gets a chance to view the eclipse during the middle of the day on August 21. The shows are set for 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

How fast is the solar eclipse?

"There has never been an event like this in human history where so many people could participate with such unique technology", Carrie Black, an associate program director at the National Science Foundation, told reporters Friday. "I think of it like a jam".

Further on the eclipse's northwestwardly path, Rabbi Zalman and Raizy Mendelsohn, co-directors of Chabad-Lubavitch of Wyoming in Jackson Hole, are preparing to host as many as 400 people for an August 20 Sunday-night soirée with Eva Schloss, the stepsister of the young diarist and Holocaust victim Anne Frank. "It's hard to see a lot of the sky at night", she said.
