But, how does a solar eclipse even happen?

Hotels along the 70-mile wide and 3,000-mile-long swath where the solar eclipse will pass through are completely booked and have been for months.

While they can look at the corona normally using disks in the telescopes creating artificial eclipses, the moon here is going to do something that disks can't, by creating a flawless Solar Eclipse, this August 21st by exposing the inner part of the corona.

"We have already handed out over 4,000 eclipse viewing glasses and have several hundred more for those needing them", Raley said. "We think people of all ages and backgrounds will find the solar eclipse to be an experience they will remember the rest of their lives".

"I actually can't remember the last time I got to see an eclipse like this". "Because it's such a rare and exciting event, we wanted to create an interactive guide that everyone could enjoy". In addition, guests will have an opportunity to learn about the sun, space, what makes an eclipse and how to view it safely.

The American Astronomical Society said earlier this week that it updated its safety advice "in response to alarming reports" of unsafe "eclipse viewers" popping up online. The eclipse can be seen in person if you live in Asia, Australia, Africa, or Europe. After glancing at the Sun, turn away and remove your filter - do not remove it while looking at the Sun.

This celestial event is a solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location. "During the eclipse, the light intensifies and it could blind you".

Upon this alignment, the Moon covers the disc of the sun, and those places on Earth that get caught by the Moon's shadow will see the Sun go dark in the phenomenon called an eclipse.

The anticipated #American Eclipse is expected to be a total eclipse.

"You can stare at the sun during an eclipse for 10 minutes, and it doesn't hurt". During most of a solar eclipse, the sun will be partly blocked by the moon, making it less bright. With your back to the Sun, look at your hands' shadow on the ground.
