It's been 99 years since a total solar eclipse crossed the country and 40 years since the United States witnessed a total eclipse. The event will feature live music from Oracle Blue, free eclipse glasses, live streaming of NASA's coverage of the eclipse as it crosses the US, and live streaming coverage of the aviary in the Lowcountry Zoo, among other activities.

A total solar eclipse will be visible in 14 states across America on august 21.

You'll have a chance to catch the live sequel, a total solar eclipse occurs on August 21st. This will happen in the region of the constellation Leo, the Lion, where every year at this time the Sun moves in front of the star Regulus~the star at the heart of the Lion. "Because it's such a rare and exciting event, we wanted to create an interactive guide that everyone could enjoy".

A solar eclipse, according to Space.com, can only happen when the moon is at one of two nodes of its orbit, or when the moon crosses the path of the sun. "SAO was founded in large part to study the sun, and we've been doing so now for more than a century".

The key at all times, eclipse day or not, is to be aware and to not look at the sun unless you are sure that you have taken the proper steps to protect your eyes. The view of the eclipse from the water will be spectacular. Videos from the Solar Dynamics Observatory show the sun in different wavelengths, revealing the many layers of solar activity.

Of course, you've seen plenty of full and new moons that haven't resulted in eclipses. The same principle can be used to track the sun's progress across the surface of the Earth if you're in outer space (aboard a satellite, for example).

Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially eclipsed, can cause serious and permanent eye damage. The total eclipse is only as bright as the full moon and not unsafe.

The full moon on August 7 is associated with a couple of cool things, namely, it begins the denouement of this moon that will result in the new moon that coincides with the total solar eclipse on August 21. The eclipse is set to begin around 1:25 p.m. and peak right around 2:45. But it actually makes a lot of sense when you stop to think about what's actually happening in the solar system: The Earth, moon and sun are lining up.

"All eclipse-related programming is free", Bain said. To view the eclipse, you'll need something at a 12, 13 or 14.

"It's the best way to watch the eclipse", Ms. Dunne-Thayer said.

However, local skywatchers will still be within the moon's penumbral shadow.
