Make sure you have certified glasses for the solar eclipse!

Putnam Carpenter eclipse

The last time a total eclipse was seen in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia was March 7 1970.

Roughly every 18 months or so, a total solar eclipse happens somewhere on the globe. The company will fly one victor and a friend to Nashville for the company's eclipse viewing party.

"If you want to understand where we came from, you have to understand space".

"I'm personally excited to see the reaction of everyone because none of us who are going have ever seen a total eclipse", said Pagan. So excited that hotels and campsites are completely booked - including 30 campsites along the "path of totality" that sold for $60,000 in an online auction. The following residential communities offer front-row seats to the celestial attraction. Solar-themed crafts and other activities will be available for younger visitors that day. "This will be a very exciting event", Jones said. With highs expected in the low 80s and less humidity if the rain holds, viewers in the area will be offered near flawless conditions for the once-in-a-lifetime event in Sedalia in the path of totality. Krepps also teaches astronomy classes at Lee. The standard route is 40 miles round-trip with more than 9,000 feet of elevation gain and involves traversing a glacier, among other steep snow and ice climbing, and Class 3 scrambling. In the area of total eclipse, the sky will be completely dark for about two minutes and birds will begin chirping. People in a 70-mile-wide path stretching from Salem, Ore., to Charleston, S.C., will experience a total solar eclipse on August 21.

Q: How rare is this event?

These eclipse-viewing glasses will help to protect your eyes while looking at the sun. Parents can also attend or check kids out of school early to attend another eclipse viewing event.

With the proper gear, you can simply step outside your home to watch the eclipse or join a viewing party at a local science center or university.

This will be the United States' first total eclipse - when the moon blocks the sun - in 38 years. "Nearly after 38 years, the continental USA will witness the shadow of a total solar eclipse".

The August 21st eclipse will track diagonally across the continental United States from the north west to south east. The outer edges of moon's shadow are narrower, so if you're standing near the edge of the path of totality, the eclipse will be shorter-lived, under one minute long.
