On Aug. 21, the continental United States will be treated to its first total solar eclipse in 38 years. Totality will cross from OR into Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and, finally, South Carolina.

There are certain glasses you can order to wear while viewing the eclipse. But a lot of people will be looking up during the solar eclipse. "At the moment of totality, flames of hot gas shooting off the sun's edge became visible to the naked eye", according to the projects home page. The site also tells you exactly how much of the sun will be covered by the moon during the eclipse. While everyone will be excited about wearing the solar eclipse glasses, it is important for people to not wear eclipse shades while driving.

For the first time in close to a century the path of a solar eclipse will exclusively cross the USA from coast to coast. The big question is whether the weather will cooperate. Yet what happens in case you look directly at the sun and what may be the damage and how to prevent it. The official NASA megacast comes out of Carbondale, where a 4.5-hour livestream will start at 11:45 a.m. ET.

Employees at Southeastern Camera in Wilmington have helped hundreds of photographers gear up to capture the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.

While Dalton will experience only a partial eclipse, Dalton State College has chartered a bus to take science and nature lovers to Englewood, Tenn., where the full eclipse can be seen. Jupiter is high in the southwestern sky after sunset and will be near the moon the evening of August 24. You can clearly see the temperature drop during totality, then the rise once the sun reappears.

"It's never safe to look directly at the sun, even if it's obscured by clouds".
