When your child asks, "What is a solar eclipse?" explain that a solar eclipse occurs when the moon is in the new moon phase and travels between Earth and the sun.
In addition to being the first total solar eclipse visible from any part of the contiguous United States since 1979, this year's eclipse will be the first with the totality of its passing spanning from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic since 1918.
A full solar eclipse will only be visible in what experts call the "path of totality," a 70-mile-wide corridor that stretches from OR to SC.
SolQuest is taking place just 1.2 miles away from where NASA has pinpointed the best place to experience the upcoming total solar eclipse. Library customers will also be able to view the partial eclipse outdoors using solar eclipse glasses (while supplies last) or make an easy projection device to watch the eclipse safely, both weather permitting.
Guinan emphasized how unsafe it is to look directly at the sun during the eclipse and warns people against that.
You can get this interactive map going to the NASA Solar Eclipse Website. They will reduce the amount of light coming through and will make it safer to view. They'll bear a tiny picture of a globe with the letters "ISO", the initials CE and a statement that reads, "Conforms to and meets the Transmission Requirements of ISO 12312-2". This show uses attractive visuals to explore the historical and cultural view of solar and lunar eclipses and explains the geometry that creates these awe-inspiring sights. A total solar eclipse is unique in our solar system since no other planets, except Earth, have eclipses where the apparent size of the sun and the planet's moon appear of equal size. Don't miss it and rejoice with us that God created humans beings at the one time and the one place where we could enjoy and benefit from experiencing flawless solar eclipses'.

In New York City, where the moon will obstruct 71% of the sun, people will still experience magic.
No other country but the US will be privy to the path of totality.
Eye Care Specialists, which has locations across Luzerne County, also pledged to give out free eclipse glasses to anyone who stops by - while supplies last. Amid reports of glasses fraudulently labeled as meeting standards for eclipse viewing, the American Astronomical Associatoin put out lists of makers of certified specs.
Experts warn that looking at the sun without protection - or inadequate protection, such as using regular sunglasses - can cause lasting vision problems. If you cannot see it from where you live, at least you can watch the space agency's broadcast.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration has estimated that as much as 4.01GW of power could be missed out on as a result of this solar event in the areas of most totality.
