Eclipse enthusiast Dan McGlaun says the rare event is uniquely American.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the light of the sun from reaching Earth, and the moon casts a shadow onto Earth, according to NASA.

Here, it will dramatically reduce the amount of daylight, giving the eerie feeling of a sunrise at mid-morning. Because the eclipse will only be partial, it's essential that anyone wishing to view it obtain the correct protective eyeware. It ends at 11:46 a.m. Good new is most of the US will get to see at least a partial eclipse. The time of maximum coverage will be just after 2:30 - I've heard 2:39 p.m. here. She described Albuquerque's view of the upcoming eclipse as like a bright, crescent moon. The football team will be practicing on the field, so the club likely will set up its telescopes on a platform at the top of the bleachers, which is wheelchair accessible. They are still selling eclipse glasses for $5 each for $7. And it's planning to sell snacks and cold drinks during the event. For viewers in Monroe County, about 87 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon.

"Just last night we were talking about the glasses, and thinking maybe we shouldn't trust them, even though the Amazon page made it fairly clear they were legit", he said.

Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises announced Monday that its eclipse-viewing boat ride had sold out, but there were still a few lake tour/hotel stay packages available starting at $239.

Get ready for solar eclipse mania.

Michael Allen of Southampton, England, is a "keen amateur astronomer" who considers the eclipse "a once in a lifetime opportunity". "In our lifetime، this is the best eclipse to see،" said Greg Earle، engineer at Virginia Tech in the US. The party is near Mitchell, Ore. In Casper, Wyoming only one hotel out of 28 in and around the city have hotel rooms available. If you're watching from Statesville, there will be direct light from the sun at all times which can cause permanent damage to your eyes. Looking through unprotected binoculars or cameras is also risky and could damage cameras or other electronic devices.

The NASA video above outlines how to make a device, using a cereal box, to safely view the eclipse. "So everyone is going to see this fantastic part of the sun with their own eyes". The focused sunlight can melt the filter and damage the eyes. During that entire time you should NOT look directly at the sun without proper eye protection. "We call it solar retinopathy and it's really very close to burning a hole in the retina". Scientists will study the sun's magnetic field and determine how energy moves through the Sun and out into space. "Awe-inspiring sights encourage empathy and generosity and group cohesion. and total eclipses always do that". The last coast-to-coast eclipse was in 1918, and after this one, the next won't come until 2045.

Safety Tips for Watching the Solar Eclipse

Sullivan said a resupply should be coming in early this week.

The 17 westernmost counties of North Carolina lie on the path of totality, as well as the SC cities of Columbia and Greenville. Gas, water and food supplies may run out.

Sedlacek is traveling with friends to southern Kentucky, along the Tennessee border, to capture the eclipse in its totality.

Lodging is full. People will be camping in yards and in forest areas. Illinois State Police anticipate many people will hit the roads to see the eclipse in its totality. It's a straight shot up I-25 N, but you're only going to get 51 seconds of totality.

Q: That's not too far away, will the sun not be totally obscured here? The clumping leaves or pine needles act in the same way as the pierced cardboard of manmade viewers, creating images of the Sun projected onto the ground or buildings. That's one good, safe way for viewing.

Across the ocean, an enormous number of animals hide in the deep, dark waters during the day, and then swim upward during the cover of night to take advantage of the food generated in the sunlit part of the ocean. "The reason is because the orbital plane of the Earth around the sun is actually not in line with the orbital plane of the moon around the Earth", he says.

He is a veteran of solar eclipses.

He concluded that although total solar eclipses are short, they can still interrupt normal avian daytime behavior.
