NASA Scientists Answer Burning Questions on Reddit About the Total Eclipse

INDOT officials say increased traffic is expected on major Indiana roadways on the day of the eclipse

That's because this narrow path criss-crosses all over the Earth every six months to a year. Millions of people are expected to travel to this "path of totality" to watch as the moon entirely covers the face of the Sun.

Remember this: hope for no clouds!

Next week, a solar eclipse will take place, affording folks across Canada the chance to witness a rare celestial event. Sunglasses, smoked glasses and other filters still will allow harmful radiation to reach your eyes.

Washington's Department of Transportation is anxious about what will happen if thousands of British Columbians head to OR to watch the solar eclipse later this month.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory also has instructions for making a pinhole eclipse viewer.

According to NASA, the first contact of the moon and sun will be seen in Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 AM PDT and it will be last seen in Charleston, South California at 2:40 PM EDT. You can replicate an eclipse by holding a flashlight and waving your hand slowly across it. As maximum eclipse approached, the temperature dropped into the upper 60s, a almost 15-degree drop.

Sadly, Massachusetts doesn't fall within that path - it runs from OR to SC - which means only a partial eclipse will be visible for those in the Bay State. So when the moon passes in front of the sun, it can create a total eclipse, depending on your viewing site.

"The last partial solar eclipse for us was in October 2014 and we were hyping the 2017 eclipse at that time during our outreach events".

Some vendors and online retailers have started to run out of the glasses, said American Astronomical Society spokesman and self-proclaimed "eclipse chaser" Rick Fienberg. But all of the USA will experience at least a partial eclipse on August 21. While technically you can shoot the eclipse photos without breaking your phone camera, the results will be much more palatable if you used a filter, like the one you use for your own eyes.

With only 11 days away from the "Great American Solar Eclipse", many of you are shopping around for glasses to catch it.

It will be a chance to get a view from the path of totality without having to travel to Missouri or southern IL.

Another advantage of a partial eclipse is that it takes place over a fairly long period of time.
