Here's where the clearest skies will be during the total solar eclipse

"The last total eclipse visible in the US was in 1991 in Hawaii, and the last one visible from the lower 48 states was in 1979 in the Pacific Northwest", Nelson said in an email to the Glasgow Daily Times.

In news that surprises no one, demand for eclipse glasses has spiked, given the attention of the upcoming Great American Eclipse set for August 21, which will run across the continental United States.

So in short, you'll want to be wary of knockoff glasses, the AAS said.

Eclipse tip of the day. As the total eclipse approaches, if you are up a little in elevation or can see a bit of a distance to the horizon, you will see the total eclipse shadow fast approaching from the northwest.

It is very unusual that the moon and the sun just happen to be at the right distances and sizes to appear to have the same size in our sky. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to watch the celestial phenomenon take place as the Earth crosses the shadow of the moon. The first one may be visible from Louisville although it is more like to be seen in the totality areas and close to the total eclipse areas. "The longest period of total eclipse is centered on western Kentucky".

Don't say News 2 never told you where to find eclipse glasses.

"People that are going to get married during the eclipse". Because the eclipse will only be partial, it's essential that anyone wishing to view it obtain the correct protective eyeware. NASA-funded studies during this eclipse will look at the effects from the eclipse on our atmosphere as well as what happens on land. Normal sunglasses don't provide enough protection.

In addition, the retina has no pain receptors so damage can occur before someone realizes, Podoll added. A person would not know until he or she looks away and is left with permanent central vision loss.

The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable eclipse glasses and handheld viewers on its website - stamped with the approval code 12312-2 code on glasses.

"Instead, Young said, search for NASA approved cardboard glasses, with an "ISO" logo".

Retailers including REI, Walmart, and Best Buy have sold of their eclipse glasses online. The clumping leaves or pine needles act in the same way as the pierced cardboard of manmade viewers, creating images of the Sun projected onto the ground or buildings.

Nelson urges those wanting to watch the eclipse to try to make it to the "zone of totality".

"It's a big event". If weather is cloudy, most viewing events will provide a live NASA stream of the eclipse inside. "It's a chance to experience space science without having to leave home". But Carbondale will see its second total solar eclipse in April 2024.

You won't see something like this again until 2316 - so you better get a good view. As the moon passes by the sun, the moon completely blocks the sunlight in an area of total eclipse and blocks a portion of the sun's light in areas of partial eclipse.

"The total solar eclipse is an exciting event, which could cause distractions for motorists", Illinois State Police Director Leo Schmitz said.
