A Summerville man can't wait to see his second total solar eclipse on August 21st.

Eck knows you only get one shot covering this total eclipse of the sun. It orbits the Earth about 400 times closer than the sun, which makes both heavenly bodies the same size in our sky - as long as the moon's elliptical orbit remains in a sweet spot.

I am not sure on this, but in Louisville we may be able to see a much darker sky to the southwest when the total eclipse is occurring over Kentucky. So, if you walk through your house and you can still view ordinary household lights through your eclipse glasses or handheld viewer, then that means your device is bogus. The eclipse will begin about 11:50 a.m. and end about 2:40 p.m., depending on location.

In the northwest, sky-gazers will find the total eclipse through central OR, where almost 1 million visitors are expected to gather in campgrounds, state parks and festivals to awe at the celestial event amid some of state's most lovely landscapes.

People in the path of the total eclipse can expect twilight-like darkness. "It's not like going to a Canucks game or a Whitecaps match where you know just about how many people are going to be there because of the number of tickets sold and what time the event starts".

By now, we've all heard plenty about the upcoming eclipse of the sun. Look for glasses rated to the ISO 12312-2 global standard. Eclipse glasses, solar filters for telescopes or homemade eclipse viewers are a necessity.

Eclipse glasses are being given away at McCracken County, Graves County and Calloway County libraries, but only during eclipse-related events.

Free certified eclipse shades will be distributed by the KCK CVB through hotels and attractions, until the glasses run out, according to the CVB.

Nelson urges those wanting to watch the eclipse to try to make it to the "zone of totality".

"It's a big event".

Is Jeffrey Gundlach Long on the CBOE Volatility Index?
The large-cap S&P 500 Index (NYSEARCA: SPY ) edged up 0.1% on Friday, but closed down more than 1% for the week. The index jumped more than 40 per cent, its eighth-biggest spike ever, to above 16 points.

If you miss the 2017 full solar eclipse, the next one visible in the United States won't be for another seven years. Only during totality is it safe to look directly at the eclipse with the naked eye. Still, a total eclipse provides an ideal natural experiment that can help researchers learn how important light cues are to different critters, Benoit-Bird said.

"There's no reason to panic if you don't have eclipse viewers themselves", he said. "It's a chance to experience space science without having to leave home".

It looks as though the vast majority of that cloud cover is high cloud, which would be less likely to block out the entire eclipse for those watching from those areas. If you look (always through a solar filter), perhaps at five- or 10-minute intervals, you will be able to see that a bite has been taken out of the sun. Stars also can appear.

University of Toledo biology professor Elliot Tramer reported that seabirds on the north coast of Venezuela were affected by a total eclipse that passed through the area in 2008.

"The difference between a partial and a total (eclipse) is literally night and day", he said.

Traders Buy Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) on Weakness

At that point, your safety glasses become unusable, since they are too dark for totality.

Police also anticipate heavy traffic next weekend and ask drivers to pull off the road to view the celestial event. The planetarium's Far Horizons team, a group of students, volunteers and Adler members, will travel to Perryville, Mo., to launch a pair of high-altitude balloons into the stratosphere to capture 360-degree video of the eclipse.

"If I have to go to OR or Nebraska OR whatever, I'll do it".

There are few good options on North Korea
With his current national security team, the president should have the benefit of good, sober operational and legal advice. Any military actions would not only affect North Korea but also the South and likely Japan and other parts of East Asia.
