Solar eclipse viewing requires special glasses

The eclipse could be viewed Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia, although many countries could only see part of it.

Times for partial and total phases of the eclipse vary depending on your location. NASA will livestream the eclipse at eclipse2017.nasa.gov. This lunar eclipse of Raksha Bandhan is associated with the upcoming major solar eclipse on August 21 solar eclipse.

Because of thick cloud cover, the eclipse was not clearly visible in the northern parts of India, particularly Delhi.

Scientists say the next "deep" partial eclipse in the United Kingdom will take place on August 12, 2026 and the next total eclipse will be in September 2090.

Thousands and Thousands of Solar Eclipses, all these years; what would be even new, you might think?

In Cambridge, a partial eclipse covering most of the sun will be visible in the afternoon from about 1:30 to 4.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon.

On Monday, August 21, a rare total eclipse of the sun will be seen along a 70-mile-wide path stretching from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.

With solar safety glasses available at every counter and an expected 2-7 million Americans traveling to the path of totality-the almost 3,000-mile-long arc from the coast near Salem, Ore., to Charleston, S.C., in which a view of the total eclipse is possible-it is clear that eclipse fever has swept the country.

You have probably seen the sun reflected in a lake. Totality begins there at 10:16 a.m. PDT.

The AAS says there are ways to test the safety of an eclipse viewer.

You never want to look directly at the sun without appropriate protection except during totality. Put a second piece of white card stock on the ground and hold the piece with the foil above it, allowing the sun to project through the hole onto the card on the ground. "Our astronomy club will have a couple of telescopes set up with the solar filter attached so you will be able to see magnified views of the sun that way". "Eclipse glasses" are available online, but check if they meet the ISO 12312-2 global standard.
