Total solar eclipse 2017: Everything you need to know

Showers, isolated storms today, tomorrow and Thursday

Monday's featured guest was someone from the Michiana Astronomical Society.

"As long as you are within the solar eclipse path, this app will talk you through the eclipse", she said.

When it comes to purchasing the right type of glasses to safely view this month's solar eclipse, there's more than meets the eye. Over the course of 90 minutes, the eclipse will move across Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and SC.

This can only occur at the time of a new moon, when the moon lies between the sun and Earth, so that the lunar shadow is cast on the Earth.

But you do not need a solar filter if you only take a photograph at the moment that the sun is blocked by the moon. Minneapolis will see 86 percent of the sun covered, Miami sees 82 percent, Montreal gets 66 percent, while Mexico City sees 38 percent. It can be found at:

Edgefield has activities planned to celebrate the total solar eclipse from noon to 3 p.m. on the Edgefield Courthouse Square. "If you're sure of those things, then yes - you can view the total solar eclipse for the totality of about two minutes without your solar eclipse glasses". Everyone else must view the partially eclipsed sun through eclipse glasses or viewers that meet ISO 12312-2 global standards, or through devices such as pinhole projectors. There is also a rare hybrid that is a combination of an annular and a total eclipse.

Fanatics have begun claiming the end of the world on that fateful day referring to it as one of the ten prophesied Biblical plagues. They will travel to Tennessee or SC to study the corona, the upper atmosphere of the sun, which is best observed during an eclipse.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation soldier, 3 Afghan civilians killed in Taliban attack
In recent days, the Taliban have stepped up their attacks on Afghan security forces across the country's south. The Pentagon has identified two soldiers killed in Afghanistan this week in a suicide attack in Kandahar.

"A blind spot would be an area in your vision where you're not seeing, or it is dark gray or black", said Podoll.

"Where you view the eclipse within the eclipse path will determine the degree to which you are able to witness totality", said Ms. MacTavish. And you know what else you'll see if you aren't careful? "The sun is just so bright".

Yesterday the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) released some data on the eclipse, showing that while sunlight in all 48 states of the continental United States will be at least 50% obscured, that only 70 MW of solar projects in Eastern Oregon are in the path of the full eclipse.

"Every single program I do, that is the hurdle I have to get over", she said. "They're so very, very wrong".

The eclipse will range from 76 percent of the sun hidden in Superior to 87 percent hidden in Platteville. Once the moon is covering the sun the complete black out will last for only a few minutes.

Lattis talked about how UW-Madison scientists were solar eclipse chasers, from the 1920s through the 1940s, for a UW-Madison News feature story.

"You can't use sunglasses; you can't use welder's goggles", Mick said. You will never forget it all your life. Once you've seen totality, you will have a bittersweet emotional - you will be giddy at what you just experienced.
