How to See Aug. 21's Solar Eclipse

Michael Kentrianakis, an avid eclipse chaser and a member of the American Astronomical Society's Solar Eclipse Task Force, learned about the confusion over the sun's size from his colleague Luca Quaglia, a physicist and eclipse researcher. On average, any given location on Earth will see a total solar eclipse once every 100 years. The next time we'll see one is 2024. So here's your guide on to safely watch the total solar eclipse! And on Tuesday, Aug. 8, at 7 p.m., he will give a longer talk on total solar eclipses at Space Place, 2300 S. Park St.

2, Paul Alimena, a member of the Westchester Amateur Astronomers and friend of the Astronomical Society of Greenwich, will give a presentation about the upcoming solar eclipse that will occur on August 21. Those in the path of totality will witness the moon completely blocking the sun and those outside of it will see a partial eclipse. While the eclipse won't be total here in the panhandle. From our vantage point, it'll be a partial solar eclipse, meaning we won't get the full show of stars and darkness.

When asking Everly what makes the safety glasses more protective than sunglasses, he explained that they are tinted so darkly that the only thing you can see is the sun. Also, just as the Sun's radiation can damage unprotected eyes, it can also damage unprotected equipment.
