Yolo County going 'luner' for solar eclipse

OR will be treated to the total eclipse first at 9:05 a.m.

"They're selling filters that might or might not be safe but they haven't been properly tested", said Rick Fienberg with the American Astronomical Society.

According to NASA, the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eyes, which will cause serious injury. While many have already made preparations for the event, here are some facts about the upcoming eclipse.

Every kid in attendance received a special pair of protective glasses to wear during the solar eclipse.

"Exercise good judgment on the roads, plan ahead, no stopping on the side of the road and, of course, no driving with those eclipse glasses because it's really tough to see".

The total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21 will be the first total solar eclipse in 99 years.

2,432 Number of days until total solar eclipse in Syracuse!

Unlike places like Hopkinsville, which will experience a total eclipse, areas like Evansville will only see a partial eclipse. When you have the real deal, you won't be able to see a thing but the sun.

You will also need to use solar filter on cameras, binoculars and telescopes and don't use eclipse glasses to look through them.

How rare is a total solar eclipse? Even though the sun is in fact many times bigger than the moon, due to the vast difference between where these two celestial bodies are located, they appear to be the approximately the same size when viewed from Earth. Yet the National Resources Defense Council reassures everyone that we don't have to worry about systems failing or homes going dark while the sun ducks behind the moon for a bit. As long as you're not driving a vehicle, lying on the road or any other road related activities, it's safe to see this eclipse without a glass. Make sure they are certified with ISO 12312-2 standards. Also, the California Academy of Sciences will provide assisted viewing on the roof and East Garden. Get viewing glasses online, or from Bishop Museum's Shop Pacifica.

If one is hoping to observe the partial solar eclipse here in Tewksbury or Wilmington, it will be visible as long as one has a clear view of the sun in the sky. The light will come in and you will see a small projection, a negative image, of the eclipse.
