Doctors Stress Proper Eye Protection For Viewing Solar Eclipse

".during the eclipse, believe it or not, the shadow of the moon will show up in each of these holes and turn them into a series of crescents all throughout it", said Crewe. We've been hearing a lot about the total solar eclipse that lasts for 2 minutes, but let me clear this up: It will not be a total eclipse here in Michiana, and it doesn't just last 2 minutes.

They're setting up multiple tents with medical supplies like automated external defibrillators in five different places within the path of totality - Vonore, Tellico Plains, Madisonville and Sweetwater.

If you are within the path of totality, remove your solar filter only when the moon completely covers the sun's bright face and it suddenly gets quite dark.

Remember this: hope for no clouds! Cameras, telescopes and similar devices, even when paired with a solar filter, are unsafe to use during an eclipse. Eclipse glasses are rated for you to actually look at the sun. Sunglasses, smoked glasses and other filters still will allow harmful radiation to reach your eyes. In Indiana, there will be a partial eclipse with 91 percent totality, beginning at approximately 2:25 p.m. and lasting approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes. In our own solar system, the planets are forever eclipsing the sun, depending on your point of view in space, while the moons are forever eclipsing the planets.

Sadly, Massachusetts doesn't fall within that path - it runs from OR to SC - which means only a partial eclipse will be visible for those in the Bay State.

This is the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States in almost four decades.

Since 1503, there have been a total of 15 total solar eclipse paths that have crossed the path of the August 2017 eclipse. Ben Larson at Advanced Eye Care says he doesn't recommend looking at the eclipse at all even with the glasses.
