On Aug. 21, "the path of totality will stretch all the way from OR to South Carolina", Stojkovic says.

Get your solar glasses ready - the upcoming eclipse on August 21 will be a rare chance to see the moon cross directly between the sun and Earth.

It will look like a typical overcast, dark kind of a day.

The day of the Eclipse, the York County library will host a viewing party starting at 1:30 pm.

"I actually saw an eclipse when I was young and I was told then and I still believe now there's damage that can be done to your eyes", said Shaw. During totality, when the moon blocks the sun, it's safe to remove the filter so you can see the sun's outer atmosphere: the corona.

The moon moves in an orbit around the Earth, which in itself orbits the sun.

On Aug. 21, the United States will experience its first total solar eclipse since February 26, 1979. According to NASA, the total eclipse lasted just over a minute.

DIY eclipse viewers were discouraged by the AAS because of the safety risks.

It's easier to see a lunar eclipse than the solar eclipse. It's very rare to have relatively close access to the total eclipse band, and viewing totality is a completely different experience than seeing an eclipse that is not total (even when 99% eclipsed).

While Ellisons haven't seen cases of solar retinopathy as a result of looking directly in the sun, they said some of their fellow eye doctors have.

If you plan on watching the eclipse, you need to be prepared to watch it safely. For those who are in Sydney, the eclipse will start by 1:50 am.

Homemade filters and ordinary sunglasses don't provide enough protection for looking at the sun or the eclipse. In order to properly observe such an event without suffering permanent eye damage, special #eclipse viewing glasses are required.

To help eclipse-watchers get a better sense of where the phenomenon will truly be most visible, NASA's Earth Observatory has released two alluring visualizations, produced by compiling satellite images for August 21 between 2000 and 2016.

Never look at an uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope or binoculars, even with solar eclipse glasses on.
