The path of the total eclipse, referred to as the path of totality, will sweep across the USA from the OR coast to the SC coast between 10:17 a.m. and 2:47 p.m.

Walla Walla County Emergency Management is warning travelers to treat the three-hour eclipse as a three-day event and to plan accordingly.

It has been named the Great American Eclipse because it can only be seen in the US. This is the first total coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918 - before the interstate highway system even existed.

Solar glasses block 99-percent of the sun's harmful UV rays.

I'll be in the States, how can I watch it safely?


It's been pretty well established that you should never look directly at the sun. That's because the solar eclipse will cross directly across the USA from the northwest coast, exiting to the southeast.

"During the total phase of the solar eclipse, what you get to see is the atmosphere of the sun".

"On Monday morning, the Earth, moon, and sun will be aligned", said Jean-Luc Margot, professor and chair of Earth, planetary and space sciences. Here is a list of your best bets for picking some up before Monday's big event, according to the American Astronomical Society (as well as local vendors).

Even a 60% solar eclipse is something that usually happens only once or twice in a lifetime. A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the sun and the moon, creating a shadow on the moon. As the eclipse progresses, the sky will get darker, the temperature will drop; animals and birds will become quieter.

This occurrence is particularly rare since it is the first to cover the continental U.S.in 99 years and the first to stay completely in the US since 1776. That is rather unusual as the surface of the Sun is closer to 10,000 degrees. Whether you have a high-end DLSR or a camera phone, you can take great photos during the eclipse. The little dot that can be viewed is, in fact, an image of the sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter - do not remove it while looking at the sun.
