Best viewing times for eclipse

Griffith Observatory welcome all to come up a see the “Great American Eclipse” happening on Aug 21. The eclipse will only be partial over Southern California

The path is only about 70 miles wide, stretching from OR to SC, and you will only experience a total eclipse if you're inside of it. "The last partial solar eclipse for us was in October 2014 and we were hyping the 2017 eclipse at that time during our outreach events". Almost every hotel room in the eclipse path is booked, which is expected to contribute to heavy - and possibly distracted - traffic on Interstate 5 and other highways throughout the morning. NASA also has information on many events at eclipse2017.nasa.gov.

Participants may view the eclipse through the library's solar telescope and sun spotter.

As always, safety comes first when viewing an eclipse.

The best place to view the August 21 total solar eclipse will be in Hopkinsville and will last just over two minutes and 40 seconds.

Staring at the sun can damage an eye's retina, causing temporary or even permanent damage.

So, according to the maps, where are the best places in the United States to view the solar eclipse?

Weather-permitting, a partial solar eclipse will be visible on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, as seen from CT.

"If you're looking at the sun for any, even short period of time, you get what's called a solar burn inside the eye", said Dr. Adam Black, Owner of Couture Vision. Other states where the complete solar eclipse can be seen are Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska and Montana. The diamond ring has disappeared and the moon has completely covered the sun.

There is no location in Florida where you'll see 100 percent of the sun obscured by the moon - a total solar eclipse. During a solar eclipse, the moon passes directly in front of the sun, blocking some or all of its light from reaching Earth.

When is the next solar eclipse?

You won't be able to see any part of the eclipse if the view is obstructed by cloud cover.

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.

The Bookmark Café will have "eclipse cookies" along with a combo of Moon Pies and Sun Chips, for sale as well as other regular café items. It will have a path 160 miles wide and the time of totality will be more than 6 minutes at its peak. Eclipses in the USA have been exceedingly rare. The path of totality will enter in OR, cross through Kansas City and Nashville before exiting in SC, as illustrated by the graphic. The "Great American Eclipse", as it's colloquially called, will cross from OR to SC in the span of about 90 minutes.

A total solar eclipse completely blocks the sun, whose extreme radiance usually makes the sun's atmosphere, or corona, invisible to our eyes.

What if I Miss It?

Good! So what do you recommend people do if they're going to be watching the eclipse? It will start over Mexico and Texas and travel up through Midwest and Northeastern America.

The total eclipse is going to take about 2 to 3 hours- the different phases of the eclipse itself.

2,955 Speed in miles per hour that the total eclipse will be travelling when it when it first reaches the OR coast at 12:05 pm EDT.

In areas where it'll be a total solar eclipse, from the Pacific Northwest through Missouri and down to SC, it'll still get really dark - pitch black like night - even if overcast.
