Angkasa says partial eclipse of the moon to occur August 7

Solar-eclipse

"The eclipse will begin with a penumbra phase at 11.50pm (August 7) and will end at 4.50am the next morning. But the important thing is to just stand there and just be amazed at what the sun looks like when you get rid of all that stuff that heats us up and keeps us warm and grows our crops". Mt. Vernon and Jefferson County will have one small spot of total eclipse, and most of the county will experience about 95 percent eclipse for almost a minute.

On Aug. 21, part of OR will see the moon completely block the sun's face in a total solar eclipse.

The only safe way to look directly at the sun during the eclipse outside the path of totality is through special-purpose solar filters, like eclipse glasses, or hand-held solar viewers, NASA says. Make sure you've got a camera, lens and tripod. "The general impression is, if you live somewhere with a 90% partial eclipse, that's good enough". According to NASA, four companies manufacture certified eclipse glasses and solar viewers that are safe for looking at the sun: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17.

Everyone in the United States gets a chance to view the eclipse during the middle of the day on August 21. The last eclipse of this magnitude, he says, occurred in 1806. The last coast-to-coast eclipse in US was in 1918. A little further east, Orient will see a maximum eclipse of about 85.9 percent at 10:26 a.m. KY 91 between Princeton and Hopkinsville is expected to see heavy traffic where several major events are planned and the roadway closely parallels the total eclipse corridor.

"This will be like Woodstock 200 times over - but across the whole country", said Alex Young, solar scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

The total solar eclipse next month will be the first one across North America since 1918. In preparation for the event, acclaimed astronomer and photographer Dr. William Gutsch has teamed up with Unique Photo in Fairfield - New Jersey's largest camera and video superstore - to offer The Great Solar Eclipse of 2017 seminar.

I know, I know. But like most boys growing up in my generation in the USA, I looked to the stars.

In fact, my 15-year-old daughter, Livy - an aspiring videographer and YouTuber with her own channel - is planning her own documentary. As Pesnell advises: "Take a picture or two with your camera".
