Be prepared to watch the solar eclipse safely

"Maybe three or four solar eclipses total happen in a year", she said. Scammers may set up fake events or charge people for access to free public parties. The deepest part of the eclipse will be at 2:25 p.m. when just shy of 90 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon.

You will notice in the shadows of tree leaves that the light spaces in between the leaves will show a bunch of tiny eclipses, acting like a bunch of pinhole projectors in one area. (Find out the exact eclipse time for your area here, and we have separate audio stories above and below for those in the path of the total or partial eclipse, respectively.) Also, we want your eclipse plans, stories and photos. The "path of totality" where the total solar eclipse is visible will stretch through 13 states from OR to SC. If weather proves to be cloudy on the day of the eclipse, it may not be clearly visible. If you are not able to make it to the narrow band of totality; don't worry, as you will still be able to view a partial solar eclipse throughout the entire United States. The solar eclipse is a significant astronomical event that creates exciting visibility. Despite the lack of totality, viewing the eclipse still provokes several health risks, requiring observers to view with caution.

Those interested in catching a safe view of the solar eclipse can stop by the Oak Park Public Library's viewing party August 21.

A total solar eclipse completely blocks the sun, whose extreme radiance usually makes the sun's atmosphere, or corona, invisible to our eyes. The Bravas and Ragin' Cajun food trucks also will be parked nearby so people can enjoy food while they watch.

The total eclipse in America will be visible in 14 different states, according to NASA. You'll need to add a certified solar filter to these devices to safely look at the sun.

Always follow safe solar-viewing procedures. Special solar viewing equipment will be available and association members will be on hand to provide informative discussion about the partial eclipse.

To remove your glasses, turn away from the sun.

My first article about the eclipse explains why solar eclipses happen, and what we'll experience here in southeast MI on August 21. The optical device concentrates the sun's light, which can damage the solar viewer and then your eyes.
