Safely view the solar eclipse

Posted August 02, 2017

Partial eclipses happen all the time but a total solar eclipse - where the Moon completely covers the Sun - is much rarer.

A total solar eclipse will be visible in portions of 14 States in the United States on August 21, 2017: Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, George, North Carolina, and SC.

"The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special objective solar filters, such as 'eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewers, '" according to NASA experts. The last total solar eclipse visible in the United States was in 1979. The UNF Astronomy Club along with the Society of Physics Students and the American Chemical Society are traveling to SC to see the eclipse in its totality.

The eclipse's totality - the path of the moon's shadow cast upon the Earth - will cross straight through the country and even clip the northeast corner of Georgia.

The Cliffs, a compilation of seven vibrant communities in Greenville (homes are priced from around $350,000 to more than $6 million), is ideally oriented for optimal eclipse viewing. "Nearly after 38 years, the continental US will witness the shadow of a total solar eclipse".

At the moment of totality, you can look directly at the sun without any protective eyewear. While phases of the eclipse will last for at least two hours, the total solar eclipse will only last about two minutes and 40 seconds.

August's upcoming eclipse will be watched by millions of people across the United States.
