This is the first time a total solar eclipse will cross the entire country in 99 years.

The 21st century, in eclipses. The path of the moon's shadow, or where the eclipse reaches totality, will cover 14 states from or to SC.

We hope that you are making preparations to see the total solar eclipse by picking your spot for safe and enjoyable viewing. Will you only be able to see a partial eclipse? Additionally, free solar eclipse glasses, courtesy of STAR_Net, will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The American Museum of Natural History will have educators ready to explain the event and will offer eclipse viewing glasses to make sure your eyes are protected so you can safely watch the event. Past claims have suggested using Mylar balloons or Pop-Tart wrappers as substitute eye protection during an eclipse, but this is unsafe and not recommended. Not only is photography experience and advanced equipment necessary, but even then it is rare to capture the ideal photo.

After that, a total solar eclipse won't pass through the United States until 2033, when an eclipse will just graze the top of Alaska. Maybe don't worry about taking pictures of the eclipse at all. Solar eclipse programs will run on Aug. 12, Aug. 13, Aug. 19 and Aug. 20 at 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
