Where kids can watch the 2017 solar eclipse on Long Island

In the case of Monday's eclipse, its familial lineage is Solar Saros 145. The extent of the clouds and storms increase as the heat of the day builds, so portions of the Carolinas, Georgia and Tennessee could have considerable cloudiness and even thunderstorms as the eclipse moves through in the 1 to 2 p.m. hour.

If you are within the path of totality, remove your solar filter only when the moon completely covers the sun's bright face and it suddenly gets quite dark.

Hundreds lined up in North Port Wednesday morning to receive their very own specialized glasses for the solar eclipse.

Eyes can be damaged by looking at the sun so extreme caution must be exercised. Normal sunglasses aren't enough to protect eyes from damaging rays. "Even so, if they're with you during your eclipse outing, your furry friends should wear protective glasses as well". Telescopes and free eclipse viewing glasses will be available, and the college's resident astronomer will be there to provide information. Number 14 welder's glasses, found in hardware stores, are also considered appropriate eyewear.

"NASA and the AAS recommend that solar-viewing or eclipse glasses meet the current global standard: ISO 12312-2". Reed adds, "You'll see that shadow getting bigger and bigger and bigger on the face of the sun until it's covering that 60-percent, and then it will diminish gradually.". The next event of this kind visible to Canadians won't occur until 2044.

The difference between a total solar eclipse and a 99 percent partial solar eclipse is like the difference between a spectacular July 4 fireworks display and a firefly.

The Ohio Northern University observatory will be open to the public to view "The Great American Solar Eclipse" from 1:30 p.m.to 3:30 p.m. on August 21. You will also be able to check out the First Alert Storm Tracker.

- With the sun behind you, look into the right hole.

It takes more than 400 years in most places before an eclipse travels through the same place again. If you'd like to drive the shortest amount of time from Downtown Orlando to see the longest amount of totality, shoot up I-95 to the Santee National Wildlife Refuge in SC, a mere 5-hour and 36-minute road trip.

Things you should look for in your glasses: Decent fit - Make sure the glasses will actually stay on your face or your kid's face.

The parts of the country that sees a total eclipse will on average see a full eclipse lasting about 2 minutes, 30 seconds.
