To help the community safely view the August 21 eclipse, Yorkshire Eye Clinic is giving away free eclipse glasses on a first-come, first-serve basis. Known as a total solar eclipse, the moon will pass directly between Earth and the sun, completely blocking the view of our favorite star.

A total eclipse will be viewable to the select 12.2 million Americans living within the path of totality, a 70-mile band stretching across 14 states from OR to SC. "The shadow itself is traveling at about roughly 1,500 miles an hour, and it ends in Charleston, South Carolina, around 2:45 or so p.m. local time".

In Michigan, 75 to 90 percent of the eclipse will be visible, meaning the moon will block 75 to 90 percent of the sun.

"I chose this movie to show because it involves a solar eclipse in the story." said Tonya Hartline, Head of Public Services of the library.

Regardless of location, the eclipse will be starting at roughly 1:30 p.m.


If you ask Brandon Lawton, an outreach astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute, we are lucky to live on a planet where such dramatic eclipses are possible at all, though. "We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase on Amazon.com and eclipse glasses sold on Amazon.com are required to comply with the relevant ISO standard".

"People need to remember that ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun", adds Dr. Kenneth Knudtson. "The light will start to decrease, temperature will drop, and then at some point, as you get right before the final moment of totality, there'll be this flash of light which is still too bright to look at, but this is called the diamond ring".

Books-A-Million and Toys R Us in Knoxville, along with Lowe's in Harriman say they may get more in next week.

The preferred glasses that you should wear during the eclipse, what do those have in them to make them protect your eye? Not only is what I described above so incredibly wonderful, but what makes it even more special is how rare it is. With these shades, you can view the eclipse before, during, and after totality without any problems. NASA suggests stretching out your fingers on both hands and overlaying them, creating a waffle pattern.

A solar eclipse takes place when the orbit of the moon puts it the path of the sun's rays beaming toward Earth. The longer the box, the larger the projection. Other ideas for viewing the sun safely are to build a pinhole camera or reflect an image of the sun off a mirror in an envelope where you have cut a small hole in the envelope. The ramifications of improperly viewing a solar eclipse can be permanent retinal damage and vision loss.
