District Prepares For Solar Eclipse

  • Library to host solar eclipse programs

Solar eclipses occur when our moon gets between the sun and our planet, obscuring the sun temporarily.

The network will cover the event with meteorologists broadcasting live from seven locations across the country, allowing viewers to see the eclipse in totality, no matter where they are located.

The goal here is to see a total eclipse without having to move to a specific spot in the city. "It's not an especially wide path of totality, but it crosses the US and no other country".

But since only a small portion of the country will see the total eclipse and it only lasts for a moment, everyone should have specialized eclipse glasses.

You can join the party on August 21 from 1 to 3 p.m.at the Palmyra Cove Nature Park Environmental Discovery Center, Route 73, for the opportunity to view one of nature's most stunning displays. As you travel closer to where a total eclipse is, expect to be bombarded with traffic caused by other eclipse chasers as well. They also are not visible during every total eclipse.

We've mapped out the best places with high vantage points and great views of the sky that will give you a clear view of the partial eclipse (if Karl plays nice, that is). How could observers on earth be linked to total solar eclipses?

Hotels along the path of totality have been booked solid for a year, and Stark said to expect heavy traffic to and from the totality path, which stretches from OR to SC. However, it's not because of the eclipse itself; it's because of the huge numbers of people that are expected to descend upon prime viewing locations. Trying to make your own eclipse glasses out of tinted filters is a definite - and potentially unsafe - no-no. The Tallulah Gorge State Park will host a solar eclipse festival from 1 to 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug 21. The library's website says "The Watcher in the Woods" should end by 2:30 p.m.

"Be prepared for prolonged travel times and heavy traffic" is what OR officials advise.

Look for glasses bearing the designation ISO 12312-2, along with the manufacturer's name and address.

Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses.

Whether you're handy or not, don't even think about watching the eclipse through conventional sunglasses (even ones with very dark lenses). The American Astronomical Society released a list of reputable vendors of solar filters and viewers.

The planetarium has stocked thousands of eclipse glasses, available in the gift shop for one dollar each. "It's one of the most remarkable, most spectacular naked-eye phenomenon that you can see".
