We are one month away from the total solar eclipse on August 21. It will happen NASA Warned People Not to Use Unsafe Eclipse Glasseson Monday, August 21st, 2017 (total solar eclipse dates the USA).

Brau finds the sheer coincidence of the solar eclipse one of its most fascinating features. The next time a total solar eclipse will be visible from the greater Columbia area will be the year 2078.

Two other satellite tools aboard the Terra and Aqua satellites, launched in 1999 and 2002, respectively, "will provide observations of atmospheric and surface conditions at times before and after the eclipse", said NASA. She recommends doing whatever it takes to watch the eclipse from within totality, because the viewing experience will be drastically diminished, even at 99 percent of totality. The partial eclipse will begin between 10:10 and 10:20 a.m. across Utah and will last until about 1 p.m.

NASA is reporting that some unsafe eclipse glasses are being distributed by unscrupulous companies. These will give you a magnified view that will clearly show the progress of an eclipse.

At the peak of the solar eclipse, 87 percent of the sunlight will be blocked when the moon's orbit travels in front of the sun and casts its shadow on Earth.

"That blackness comes at you at more than a thousand miles an hour and swallows you up, and that's part of the experience of a total eclipse of the sun".

Everyone in the United States gets a chance to view the eclipse during the middle of the day on August 21. Such a rare opportunity - and the first of its kind driven by social media - is expected to draw eclipse chasers worldwide. The day will turn into night for 2 to 2 minutes and 41 seconds.

During the celestial event, the moon will pass between the sun and Earth, appearing to block the sun for almost an hour and a half.

Gutsch, a retired distinguished professor of the College of the Arts and Sciences at Saint Peter's University in Jersey City and former chairman of the American Museum of Natural History's Hayden Planetarium in New York City, cautions that viewing and photographing the eclipse needs to be done safely.
