What you need to know about the solar eclipse

"With an eclipse, it's not as bright so you keep staring at it". Help children to be sure they use handheld solar viewers and eclipse glasses correctly.

On the Vineyard, the moon will begin to block the sun around 1:30 p.m. At least one group of locals has ventured to other parts of the country to see the total eclipse of the sun from a more ideal vantage point.

The Cuyahoga Falls Library will host an outdoor viewing party as the eclipse passes over OH around 2:30 p.m.

"Its longest duration will be near Carbondale, Illinois, where the Sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds", says the USA space agency.

People started lining up at the Brunswick library almost an hour before the event was scheduled to start. Senior executive producer Paula S. Apsell said "Eclipse Over America", which delves into why eclipses occur and what scientists can learn from them, will incorporate images of the event from across the country shot earlier that day with Dantowitz's high-tech cameras.

"We've got a bad feeling that by the time we get up there, the glasses will be gone", said Don Scheuerle, a St. Simons resident, who stood in line Tuesday with his wife, Kathie. An invitation to Grand Vue Park's free event has been shared with area schools.

"Even though we thought we were planning far ahead, it wasn't far ahead compared to what some folks are doing", said Pellatt from the OR coast, en route to Madras, Ore.

August 21 will mark the first total eclipse in the United States since 1979.

This occurrence is particularly rare since it is the first to cover the continental U.S.in 99 years and the first to stay completely in the USA since 1776.

"But in New Jersey, the sky will not turn dark", he said.

It could be sent hurtling into the sun, or even be ejected from the solar system, Siegel explains.Or, it could end up plunging toward Earth.The comet is moving four times faster than the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs, according to the astrophysicist, and the resulting impact would release 28 times as much energy - or, the equivalent of 20,000,000 hydrogen bombs exploding. The moon moves between the sun and earth.

During a total eclipse, nature behaves strangely. The Nashville Zoo said it's curious to see how their animals will react to a false dusk, night and dawn taking place over the course of a few hours in the middle of the day. Cows sometimes go back in their barns and nocturnal insects may buzz.

Also, Nigeria will experience total lunar eclipse, which would be is fully visible in Lagos. That path stretches across the United States from OR to SC.

Remember - unfiltered cameras, telescopes, binoculars or similar devices are also not safe to use for viewing the eclipse and can still lead to eye damage.

Missouri State is offering a refund and a replacement pair for anyone who purchased the recalled glasses from the bookstore, but the store will not have any additional pairs for sale.

"In between classes. My class starts at 1:10, so hopefully I'll be able to catch them on my walk in between from one building to another", said Emilie Stagoski, an MSU student.
