How Old Will You Be to Witness the Next Total Eclipse?

How Old Will You Be to Witness the Next Total Eclipse?”

The eclipse will occur on August 21 between 1:05 pm and 3:38 pm Eastern Time, with the total eclipse at 2:18 pm.

While it's a spectacular event, it can also be unsafe if you try to look up without protection.

Hobson Eye Associates is reiterating the advice of the American Optometric Association as the date of an upcoming full solar eclipse draws closer. NASA has made a wonderful interactive map that lets you zoom (the zoom controls are on the right hand side of the map) into your community and find out exactly when the eclipse will begin, when you'll see totality (the moment when the moon comes completely in front of the sun) and when the last moment you'll see it at all. However, those situated within a 70-mile-wide "path of totality" stretching across the nation from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to near Charleston, S.C., will be treated to a total eclipse, where the moon fully covers the sun for a few minutes. Why are they so rare? NASA offers an entire website devoted to educational activities associated with the eclipse. However, solar eclipses in general happen pretty often. Where can I see it? . "The path of totality crossed the southeastern US and included portions of Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia and Nantucket". From there, the deep shadow of the moon will pass over parts of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC before ending at 4:09 p.m. ET, NASA said. For more details, go to the Total Eclipse Tailgate Page.

The eclipse was broadcast live on Slooh, a site that offers online access to a variety of telescopes. They will travel to Tennessee or SC to study the corona, the upper atmosphere of the sun, which is best observed during an eclipse. You need to find approved solar eclipse glasses that can block out the sun. "If you have an opportunity to get into the path of the eclipse, it's definitely an item that should be on everybody's bucket list", he told ABC News. Chris Hobson, O.D. and the entire staff at Hobson Eye Associates would like to warn residents of Kennesaw and surrounding areas about this hazard so they do not cause permanent damage to their eyes and vision.
