Total Eclipse of the Sun

August 21, 2017
The sun will disappear for about 2½ minutes, beginning in Oregon about 10:15 a.m. local time; the phenomenon will move eastward, ending an hour and a half later in South Carolina.  From Oregon in a line to South Carolina will be the greatest eclipse viewing points. ●Get eclipse glasses — for just a few dollars you can get lenses made with optical Mylar, or #14 welder’s glass. ●Find friends who have a solar telescope and watch with them. (You’ll see sunspots, the irregular profile of the moon’s edge, a glimpse of Venus.) ●During the eclipse, remember to tear your eyes away from the sun and turn around: In every direction, you’ll see the painterly colors of a 360-degree sunset. The last time a total eclipse was visible coast to coast was June 8, 1918. If you don’t plan ahead, you could miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
