Solar eclipse glasses have especially dark lenses and block out more light than traditional sunglasses.

As always, safety comes first when viewing an eclipse. Depending on how long you gazed at the sun and how badly the retinal cells were damaged, this spot will either fade away in time or remain permanent. We have had nine total eclipses in the USA, most with short paths, for the entire 20th Century and it's been about a century since the last coast to coast total solar eclipse in 1918. On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States all the way from OR to SC.

There are many kinds of solar eclipses. Corvalis, Albany and Lebanon, Oregon will experience the mid-eclipse times at 10:17 a.m. local time, with peak times in Columbia, South Carolina occurring at 2:43 p.m.

We don't see a total solar eclipse with every new moon because there are other stipulations, too.

Why don't they happen more often? However, as totality is ending, there's a flash of sunlight when the moon moves off the sun.
