In addition to its preparation event, the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society also will help people experience the solar eclipse by having members out from noon to 3 p.m. August 21 in the plaza outside the main library, a group news release said. The sun's corona, or top layer, is only visible during a total solar eclipse.

The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m.
The path goes just south of the IN border, which means Fort Wayne will experience a partial solar eclipse with about 85 percent of the sun blocked, Science Central Executive Director Martin S. Fisher said IN a news release. For the first time I in almost 30 years, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the US on August 21. The next one will be in 2024. People have a sense that night is occurring in the middle of the day. "We thought that the eclipse would be the exact opportunity to do all of those things".

Sir Arthur Eddington, an astronomer who helped further the study of general relativity and whose work is a major piece of our modern understanding of stars and black holes, used the darkness provided by a solar eclipse to look at the position of the stars' light during the day, when it passed the sun. Tennessee's transportation department warned that it is prohibited to stop on interstates to watch the eclipse, especially in emergency lanes. But Blair said people should make sure the glasses are ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certified.
Atkinson explained burning a retina, which can occur if a person looks directly at the sun without protection, is painless.

Elise Ricard, public programs supervisor at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, recalled the eerie silence that accompanied the start of a total eclipse early on a June morning in 2012. Those who have seen totality say it changes you, humbles you before the cosmos. Add to that the capability to stream the event globally, and you have what will likely be the largest audience for any eclipse ever. Rather than the 10 minutes of something happening, the total solar eclipse observers will see and feel something unique.
Volunteers will be asked to make two observations on the day of the eclipse. "The anticipation and excitement are growing". They happen every once in awhile, the last big one was in 2012. Only use a telescope or binoculars if they are fitted with reliable solar filters created to fit directly on the instruments and the operator knows how to use them.
