Solar eclipse: When New Yorkers can see the phenomenon

"Then, when they got here, they did arrive with the correct iso number, but then I started thinking, anyone can put anything on anything they want to and I could tell they weren't American", says Walter.

On August 21, 2017, beginning at 10:15 a.m. PDT, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States. "Since Cleveland is in the path of totality, hosting an event was a no-brainer".

Kansas City, Nashville and St. Louis are some of the cities that will have a good chance of seeing the sun totally covered. "And you don't want to get stuck".

Remember this: hope for no clouds!

According to information obtained from Voyages of Discovery, this astronomical occurrence is 22nd of the 77 solar eclipses in the series called Saros 145.

It's important, according to experts, to have the proper eyewear for the rare occasion - especially if you are watching the eclipse from a location that's not within the "path of totality", the strip of communities where the sun will appear entirely obscured by the moon for more than two minutes. Sunglasses, smoked glasses and other filters still will allow harmful radiation to reach your eyes. The eclipse will begin at about 11:54 a.m. and will peak at about 1:19 p.m.

He explains that, whenever the Earth, moon and sun align to form a solar eclipse, the event is visible somewhere on Earth.

"Libraries all over the country are providing informational resources, hosting events, and helping people view the eclipse safely", said Jen Marx, Library Public Services coordinator.

"We'll also be doing an (educational) activity that's easily transferable to the classroom and that students also can do on their own", said Sondra Geddes, education specialist at NASA's Armstrong Educator Resource Center in Palmdale. It will be followed in 2024 by another total eclipse that runs from Texas to Maine. So when the moon passes in front of the sun, it can create a total eclipse, depending on your viewing site.

The glasses are to be used during the whole eclipse except during the brief period of totality when the moon completely covers the sun.

"It'll be interesting to see the amount of effect is has on individual systems and everyone with solar has a monitoring system so they will see their power going up during the day, hopefully it's nice, and when the eclipse hits, it'll drop down as if a cloud is going over and slowly come back up". It's safe to look at a partial eclipse with these.

Total solar eclipse simulation for Kansas City, Missouri, at 11:30 a.m. on August 21.

The average high for temperatures in Mid-Missouri on August 21 are in the upper 80s and with the eclipse starting a quarter before noon, we can estimate temperatures will be in the mid-70s.

The special glasses block the harmful rays that would damage your eye when looking at the sun.

It will be a chance to get a view from the path of totality without having to travel to Missouri or southern IL.
