Mark your calendar for the next solar eclipse in 2024!

A view of the partial solar eclipse from outside Holy Cross Hospital in Taos just after 11 a.m. Monday. Where you for the eclipse? If you took any Symptoms of solar eclipse eye damage

For those living in places like Los Angeles, California or San Antonio, Texas, about 60 to 70 percent of the sun was blotted out by the moon, according to Business Insider.

Outside in the Mendel Courtyard, the statue of Gregor Johan Mendel, scientist and Augustinian, had the timely addition of solar eclipse glasses placed on his face.

Next time around, the path of totality will be passing through different parts of the country. "With a 99 percent totality, you don't get the same experience".

The path of totality - where day briefly becomes night - will pass over OR, continuing through the heartland all the way to Charleston, South Carolina.

All of North America was on track to get at least a partial eclipse, along with Central America and the top of South America.

Wherever there's only a partial eclipse - you need to keep those solar specs on the whole time.

The "total" part of the eclipse, when the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun and blocks all of the Sun's light, starts at 10:16 local time (1716 GMT) over the Pacific coast of OR and ends at 2:48 pm (1848 GMT) over Charleston, South Carolina.


There are other options if you don't have eclipse glasses. It's still just as harmful to look directly at the sun during an eclipse as it is to look at the sun unobscured. That seemed to be about what happened as the sun and moon together put on a fine show, and the stars emerged at 10:17 am, or at least some did.

Seconds are enough for retinal sunburn.

If you feel as though you may be experiencing any of these symptoms, Chous noted that you should immediately visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive exam.

"The damage can really be permanent and right smack in the center of their vision", said Vincent Jerome Giovinazzo, director of ophthalmology at Staten Island University Hospital, Northwell Health. Even those outside the direct path of the eclipse were overcome by what they witnessed.

"I remember watching the eclipse when I was young, and my family had to use boxes to view it", Randy George said. Also important to note is that it's unsafe to attempt to take pictures of the eclipse with a camera, The Verge reports.

Eclipse glasses can be worn directly over your prescription glasses or with contacts.
