Researchers Use Computer Simulated Predictions of the Solar Eclipse to Predict Detrimental Space Weather

The moon's shadow passes across the Earth and, for the people in the path of totality, the sun disappears behind the moon. "We're all going to take a late lunch and watch it together".

Please don't judge me, but while we're at it, what exactly is an eclipse?

Could the total solar eclipse set for Monday be rained out?

Solar glasses are for sale at both Kaleideum locations, but have been sold out several times.

Burlington, Ky. - The Boone County Public Library will be handing out 1,000 pairs of eclipse glasses beginning at 12:00 p.m. "It'll go across the entire country in totality in one hour and 33 minutes".

At totality, prepare for oddness, at least for a few minutes. Illinoisans, rejoice - you'll get the longest bit of the eclipse in Carbondale. However, she plans to stay in Corbin and view the eclipse with 98 percent totality.

In the state, spectators will witness the moon hide 70 percent of the sun. Most of northern Colorado will hit 90 percent or more. Remember, we haven't had a total eclipse in 38 years!

It will likely be very hard.

-Always read and follow all directions that come with the solar filter or eclipse glasses.

Just over 12 million Americans live inside the path of totality, but millions more people will come from overseas, including from the UK.

The North followed the May launch with two flight tests of its Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile last month. In addition to air drills with Japanese fighters, the bombers have also exercised with South Korean aircraft.

"Our ophthalmologists don't see much need for concern with animals during the eclipse", said Rob Warren, a spokesman for the UC Davis Veterinary Hospital. The path of totality will first make landfall stateside at Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 a.m. PDT before continuing across the continental US through 12 states before reaching SC. Solar glasses must be ISO-certified.

There will be a limited supply of solar-eclipse glasses as well as special solar-telescopes designed for viewing the Sun safely, and other telescopes equipped with special protective filters to allow safe viewing of the Sun. Local leaders are telling people to arm themselves with food, water and a full tank of gas, and they are anticipating the worst traffic directly after the eclipse as people return to their normally-scheduled lives.

He is recommending that all pet owners do the same as him.

If a digital experience isn't what you're after, consider one of the cheapest and easiest eclipse viewing tricks: the old pinhole. Take a look at these instructions.

Wake Forest University issued a statement that no festivals or events are scheduled during the eclipse as it precedes move-in day and the start of the school year.

It's possible there could be cloud cover in some areas.

Taking care of your eyes is one of the things to have on your check-list before Monday.

Where can I share my eclipse photos so they can be shown on TV?

Regular sunglasses are not adequate to view the eclipse, according to the American Astronomical Society. We'll have an easy-to-find link on the homepage on Monday.

Nasa will live-stream the event on its its website, Facebook, Periscope, Twitch, UStream, Nasa TV and the Nasa YouTube channel.
