NASA has said it is taking advantage of the August 21 total solar eclipse to better our understanding of Earth's ionosphere, a very perplexing region which grows and shrinks based on solar conditions. The Feb. 26, 1979, solar eclipse had a different path and thicker swath across the U.S. While it started in OR and passed through North Dakota, it went northeast across Canada. During the eclipse, you'll see the shadow of the moon pass in front of the sun.

Animals may behave strangely or differently during the total solar eclipse later this month.

Camp sites in OR have been winning at an auction for $500 a night, compared to the normal $28 a night, and some premium spots with unobstructed views are going for $2,000. The program examines what eclipses are, and how and when they occur.

Those in Kelowna looking for a dose of education during the upcoming solar eclipse are in luck. Once the eclipse has begun, the moon continues to eat its way across the blazing sun before darkness falls, the temperature drops and the sky is dominated by a radiant crown around the moon.

Crickets and frogs may jump-start their evening chorus, diurnal animals might quiet down and even nocturnal animals like bats and owls might be lured into activity in the eclipse's totality.

"There's no such thing as an nearly total eclipse", Schneider said.

Tickets, which include the cost of eclipse-viewing glasses, are $12 for adults, $10 for children age 12 and under and $7 for planetarium members.

Though some media reports have wrongly stated that NASA endorses eclipse viewers, government agencies are precluded by ethics regulations from backing particular products.

Let's make sure one thing is clear: Here in Sacramento, you should not look at the sun without eclipse glasses at any point during the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21.

"We will also have telescopes set up with filters so people can look at it", said Huston. "We are going to have concerts, people shooting off fireworks in the dark of the midday sun, loud noises and strangers".

Even though the glasses might look a little amusing, there's nothing amusing about eye damage.

The Eclipse is the result of the moon aligning between the Earth and the sun, blocking the sun's light and casting a shadow on our planet. "It is way too bright to look at", he said.

The next total solar eclipse is July 2, 2019, but you won't be able to see it unless you're in the South Pacific or in Chile or Argentina in South America. Not only is what I described above so incredibly amazing, but what makes it even more special is how rare it is. Among the reasons, the amount of traffic expected in the area and its impact on emergency response times.
