In China, 715 years ago, that statement would've been met with fear and worry over what disaster the darkening of the skies would foretell to fall upon the leader. We found the places with the biggest surges in searches turn out to be prime spots not only for viewing the eclipse but for an overall travel adventure.

When: Aug. 21, noon to 4 p.m. In the 14 states, there will be darkness for a few minutes in most areas of the eclipse's direct path.

Kidspace Children's Museum NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be on hand to demonstrate how to make a pinhole camera (for safe viewing) and the museum's handing out viewing glasses with the price of admission.

The intermountain areas typically see thunderstorms bubble up in the afternoons during this time of year.

The New York Times, the UK's Telegraph, USA Today, Fodor's Travel, Today.com, Forbes, The Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, Buzzfeed, Newsweek, the Washington Post, Orbitz, Expedia and more have named Columbia, S.C., as one of the best places to watch the eclipse because of its lengthy duration of "totality".

However, the path of totality, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's corona, can only be seen along a band that stretches from Salem, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, and includes Nashville, Murfreesboro and other Middle Tennessee communities.

"But once the eclipse is over and the sun starts coming back, we have to ramp down the other generation in order to keep supply balanced with demand". The moon's shadow usually misses us as it passes by because of the tilt of the earth's axis.

Events have been planned throughout Georgetown County as businesses and residents gear up for the Great American Eclipse, a rare total solar eclipse that will occur on Monday, Aug. 21.

The path of totality is only about 75 miles wide.

A solar telescope and a telescope with a solar filter will be set up in front of the visitor center starting at 9 a.m.

The path of totality spans the USA, starting in OR and moving eastward to SC in the course of about 90 minutes.

The shadow will exit the state at 11:48 a.m.

Officials say it is unsafe to wear eclipse glasses while driving. He'll also have a stash of proper eclipse viewing glasses to share with anyone who is near him.

This is a pretty special event considering that a coast to coast total solar eclipse has not happened in North American in almost a century. You can find out how much of the sun will be covered and at what time on this interactive map. He has witnessed eight total eclipses in his life, so I asked him to walk us through what the experience is like. Increases were measured by comparing searches for the final weekend prior to the eclipse (Aug 19-20) to average searches conducted for the preceding six weekends. Wickes saw a total eclipse of the sun on the Eastern seaboard in 1970.

"As a mother of three young boys, I want them to see and remember the eclipse for the rest of their lives, but I also want them to know that the danger of improperly viewing it can not be overestimated".

The handsome Rainbow Springs Conserved Property near Franklin will be the site of an eclipse celebration hosted by Mainspring Conservation Trust Monday, Aug. 21. "It didn't come as far south as Corvallis or Eugene".
