"That's still a pretty good eclipse of the sun". She is also the founding director of the Rice University Space Institute, but she was kind enough to join CBS North Carolina Chief Meteorologist Wes Hohenstein to talk about the solar eclipse. It would also be visible in the Horn of Africa, the Arabian peninsula, southern Pakistan, parts of China, Taiwan.

The 70-mile-wide path of the coast-to-coast solar eclipse will cross 2,800 miles and 14 states, from OR to SC, in just 90 minutes.

"The difference between a partial eclipse here in Lexington and a total solar eclipse, let's say in the Hopkinsville area, the difference is literally nearly the difference between night and day".

Will noted solar eclipses aren't all that rare. Incidentally, the timing is dependent on your location.

We are days away from the solar eclipse, and it's important that you have the right glasses. The farther south the viewer, the more dramatic the eclipse will be. "We want to emphasize that viewing a partial eclipse without eye protection can damage the retina so safety practices are of the highest priority".


Those wishing to catch the full total eclipse experience will have to travel somewhere along the path of totality, an approximately 70-mile-wide path stretching from OR to SC where the total eclipse will be viewable.

This means the sun will not be covered by the moon entirely and viewers will need to keep their ISO approved, eclipse viewer glasses on during the entire eclipse.

The timing of the total solar eclipse for our area begins at 11:52 a.m., peaking at 1:20 p.m. and ending at 2:50 p.m. "These are certified both in the United Kingdom and the united states".

The great American total solar eclipse is next Monday, August 21 and will travel from OR to SC.

If you were given the glasses by a friend or family member, and you're not entirely sure where they came from, you can check to see if the glasses comply with the " ISO 12312-2" safety standard.
