The next total eclipse of the sun in Louisville

The next total eclipse of the sun in Louisville”

"On Mon. Aug. 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will start in OR and cross the country, leaving Charleston as one of the last places that people can see the eclipse before it goes out to sea". This will be the time the Moon covers most of the Sun at 88%. Viewing the sun or an eclipse using any other glasses or filters could result in loss of vision or permanent blindness.

On August 21، the Moon will slide in front of the Sun and for a brief moment، day will melt into a dusky night in the US. "I have never been more proud to be a Yellow Jacket". The odds of that seem astronomical, pardon the pun.

Eclipse2017.org also suggested, don't use a flash, it will ruin the show for anyone around you, use a tripod, use a lens that is long enough, and make sure you're fully charged or have new batteries. Find a tree near you and glance down at the ground toward the shadow that is cast by the tree. They both have seen total eclipses. It's been described as stunning.

Because of the sudden darkness and drop in temperature, it's very possible to witness sudden changes in animals' behavior. You can see the moon's shadow moving toward and then away from you across the landscape. This extraordinary cosmic spectacle will pass through 13 states, and everyone in the continental US will have the opportunity to see at least a partial eclipse, making it the most widely viewed American eclipse of all time. The school system has acquired 7,000 solar eclipse glasses, one for every teacher, student, staff member, and parent volunteer.

In preparation for the flood of visitors arriving in Charleston to view the eclipse, city officials are considering banning all tour vehicles from operating on the peninsula on August 21. This is why doctors recommend wearing special eclipse glasses, which are created to filter out those harmful rays. The eclipse starts at 1:21 p.m.at this location, with the maximum eclipse at 2:47 p.m. Children will be closely monitored, and parents who do not wish for their children to participate may opt their children out of the event.

Steve Roark is the area forester in Tazewell for the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, Forestry Division.

Participants may view the eclipse through the library's solar telescope and sun spotter.
