The Great American Solar Eclipse! The moon does not completely cover the sun from our vantage point.

Solar eclipses happen when the moon passes between the earth and the sun in such a way that its shadow falls onto the earth.

What will it look like? According to the guide found below, Corsicana will experience a 75 to 80 percent coverage of the sun. It will appear as an upward-pointing arc, like the top of a fingernail.

While parts of Tennessee will have a complete view of the total eclipse, the state of MA is outside of the direct path. Then, a sliver will reappear and grow as the eclipse passes. From about 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. on Monday, August 21 the "Great American Solar Eclipse" will roll across the Great Northwest to Appalachia, then off the coast of SC. The first one starts at 1 p.m., with the next one a 2 p.m., and the last at 3 p.m. Hartline says the Mobile Astronomy Lab is free for all to attend.

But in Ukraine and Eastern Europe this Eclipse will not be visible.

Eyes on the Eclipse is a part of the NASA's Eyes program, which allows users to follow missions such as Cassini, Juno or New Horizons through interactive apps.

How can I look at it safely? But experts have warned that you need the right glasses to keep your eyes safe.

Remember official glasses are approved by the American Astronomical Society. We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse. "This is actually the region of the sun where solar activity comes from, where space weather comes from, which is something that I study very closely".

- Solar Timer ($1.99) offers app-generated voices to "talk" you through the eclipse, counting down to the moment of totality and alerts on when it's safe to take off your glasses. The solar eclipse is a significant astronomical event that creates exciting visibility. They wrote, "It has been almost 100 years since a total eclipse has moved from coast to coast across the #United States". That eclipse took a somewhat similar path as this month's will, from OR to Florida.

Should the day be rainy or cloudy, the event will take place inside the library's second-floor Veterans Room, where the eclipse will be live-streamed. Here's an article about the stunning experience of totality. The 2045 eclipse will track from northern California to Florida.

An eclipse does not happen often. Because the Moon orbits in an ellipse, it can either be close or far from the Earth as it circles us. This is the result of the last remaining little bits of sun shining between mountains and through deep valleys on the edge of the moon, and is called Baily's Beads.
