Make an eclipse viewer today through Sunday at the Menlo Park Library

"The US hasn't experienced a total coast-to-coast eclipse event since 1918, and the last time we saw a total solar eclipse in America since 1979, but it was not a total eclipse in Texas". The natural phenomenon is rare in and of itself, requiring ideal alignment of the Earth, moon and sun, and, according to scientists, often occurs over water sources or other locations uninhabited by humans.

Besides eclipse shades and telescopes with hydrogen alpha filter, the society has a picture of what people here in Stockton will experience from the first contact to last.

A total solar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun, and appears to cover the latter.

According to NASA's Eclipse 2017 website, Jacksonville will be in 94 percent obscuration of the event, meaning residents will be able to see slightly less than the total eclipse.

In the Raleigh area, the eclipse should be visible from about 1:16 p.m.to 4:06 p.m.

Come On August 21st, a rare solar eclipse will be visible across the country.

If this is too crafty for you, you can find safe solar viewing glasses through some community centers and libraries. Eclipse glasses are for sale online so that you can view the eclipse without damaging your eyesight. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses are not safe for looking at the sun. The concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye, causing serious injury.

The society is hosting an eclipse viewing party at San Joaquin Delta College on Monday. "And the retina is like the film of our camera of our eyes".

While other states will experience longer periods of darkness, visibility in Nebraska is expected to be among the best as the state is forecast to enjoy good weather. The moon's shadow will cruise over the United States at about 2,400 miles per hour.

Facebook wouldn't tell Business Insider how many people it expects to tune in, but noted that 45 million of its users are connected to pages related to astronomy and space exploration.

Tip: The farther away you hold the projector, the bigger the image will be. It's the middle of August, and it will be hot! All of North America will see at least a partial solar eclipse. Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade will be dismissed at 3 p.m. instead of 2 p.m. Lesson plans will be related to NASA and other sites.

Ronald Stahl, MD, is the chief medical officer at Wilson Medical Center.
