Floyd County Schools to delay dismissal on August 21

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun - thereby covering the sun. According to Wikipedia: "The total eclipse will have a magnitude of 1.0306 and will be visible from a narrow corridor through the United States". But for those who can't make it down to OR at 10 a.m. on a Monday morning OR don't want to face the traffic, will the eclipse still be worth watching in Seattle? Attracting adventure seekers and astronomy enthusiasts from all over the country, The Eclipse at Gorges will feature live music, food trucks and educational talks/hikes with Park rangers. With your back to the sun, look at your hands' shadow on the ground.

Before you head out to see the view, you need to make sure you're protected.

From a trailer in Casper, WY, a small town directly in the eclipse's path, another NASA-funded study will point a spectrometer called the NCAR Airborne Interferometer at the corona, using infrared light to measure its intensity. You may attempt a brief yawn yourself. How early and how late is Venus visible? This phenomenon is caused by the last rays of sunlight streaming through the moon's rugged mountain valleys, and it occurs for just a few seconds before and after totality. Heading east of the Cascades would mean more reliable, clear weather without the same crowds that OR is experiencing.

The total eclipse of the sun will last about two minutes for people directly under its path. Looking through a camera, binoculars, or telescope makes it that much worse.

In Michigan, only a partial eclipse will be visible and looking at with a naked eye is very unsafe. Partial solar eclipses are interesting, and well worth your time and effort to observe. Sunglasses will not provide sufficient protection from solar radiation as you watch for the event to begin, so during the time leading up to the eclipse and as it ends, it's imperative to use solar filters or viewing glasses.

Make sure you have the right equipment to view and protect your eyes for this historic event taking place August 21. To celebrate this cosmic wonder, the Orlando Science Center is holding viewing parties around town to view the eclipse safely. To prove it, he showed us about a half dozen pairs of eclipse glasses that he's picked up on his eclipse related journeys over the years. A total solar eclipse, which is when the Moon completely covers the Sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental US along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.

But professionals have a few words of strongly urged advice: never, ever point any type of camera, telescope or binoculars at the sun, even during a almost full eclipse, without a certified solar filter firmly attached to the front of the lens.
