How to prepare for the total solar eclipse

How many moons are there in the solar system?

As you're probably aware by now, on August 21, the country will experience a total solar eclipse - and this one has even been named the Great American Eclipse. The slight angles of the moon and earth's orbits keep the total eclipse from happening more often. If you can see the light bulb, you are wearing a pair of unsafe viewing glasses. The Sun or eclipse should not be viewed with an unfiltered camera, telescope or binocular as it will result in serious injury to your eyes.

During this partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon, as seen from Dubai. There are solar filters that are safe for viewing and photography and there are solar filters that are only safe for photography.

The manufacturer name and address should also be printed on the glasses-be sure it's one of the 5 NASA recommends. "Experiencing this eclipse might be a singular event that inspires a lifetime of curiosity". All you have to do is turn your back to the sun and look in it.

Buyers beware! Some vendors are selling counterfeit eclipse glasses that aren't certified.

Have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard.

But the ISO label isn't enough.

Tuesday morning, Boise libraries were giving away 2,000 glasses, and in a matter of minutes all of them were gone. As I browsed online, every seller promised that its glasses were "certified".

An cheap filter, like the DayStar white light filter seen here from B&H, is essential for protecting both eyesight and sensitive camera components from the harsh light of even a partially eclipse sun. This is not the time to skip doing your homework. It's the first solar eclipse to cross the United States since 1918 and the last one before 2045, so it's no surprise that a lot of people are quite excited about this one. Therefore, it advises people to buy glasses only from official sellers who collaborate with the society. In addition, anyone can download and use the open-and-go eclipse lesson from Mystery Science for free. Return them for a replacement.

For the players' part, the focus is on the game. "That's something that I've been working on really hard over the last few years". Feng, whose swing mirrors her personality - carefree and whimsical - was more than up for the myriad of obstacles tossed at her.

Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses. It isn't exclusive to North America though. Special safety glasses are needed to view the event, which will be provided at each school.

"The eclipse will fantastic in Seattle", University of Washington astronomy professor Bruce Balick told Curbed Seattle over email, "as [opposed] to outrageously eerie in central OR".

Unless you are planning to use a dispersed camping spot plan to spend a good deal on a hotel room.

The Oregon Tourism Commission, Travel Oregon, is estimating one million residents and tourists will visit places like the capital, Salem, as well as prime rural viewing areas like Warm Springs, Madras, Mitchell, Prairie City and Huntington in Eastern Oregon. The Washington Post will have special features for the big day of darkness that will include live blogs, videos, graphics and photos.

I probably don't need to tell you this, but looking directly at the Sun hurts, badly, so don't do that.

And make sure they're the right kind, or you could suffer eye damage.

The solar eclipse starts at 11:54 a.m. CDT and totality begins at 1:22 p.m. CDT, lasting for a little over 2 minutes. The damage could be temporary or permanent.

Be careful. And don't let the scammers ruin your excitement during this epic celestial event.
