UNO physics department officials said the university will host two more free discussions on the August 21 total solar eclipse. The event will cast a shadow along the 113-kilometre corridor stretching from OR to SC on August 21.

In the quest for renewable and sustainable methods of power generation, one of the most popular methods is solar energy.

The total solar eclipse will occur between 12:05 pm and 4:09 pm (New York time).

For the first time in 38 years, the moon on August 21, 2017 will block the view of the sun from Earth in the United States and create a total solar eclipse. As a result of the eclipse, more than 9,000 megawatts of energy generated by the solar farms will go down, an amount that would have supplied 7 million homes.

Prince William Public Library System wanted to host solar eclipse events because it is a momentous occasion in American history as well as an opportunity to incorporate STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) elements into library programming.

UNO said it will sell solar glasses for $1.

A partial solar eclipse will be visible in Elkhart County.

The biggest impact to solar power generation may be in California as it meets about 40 percent of the state's demand on some days.

Experts say that this could spike the prices of wholesale power, especially during summer as demand surges. "Everyone who is able should take some time out of their day to watch this celestial occurrence".
