This Monday will mark the first time in nearly 40 years that a full solar eclipse has been visible in the mainland United States.
Yes, solar physicists will be learning about the sun's corona, which is so dim that we can only see it by eye when the rest of the sun is blocked out.
The total eclipse will cut through only a 70-mile-wide band of the country, stretching from the Northwest to the Southeast US.
Faculty members and students from the department of physics will be on hand to provide proper viewing equipment, including solar observing glasses and a solar telescope.
-The only time that you can look at the sun without a solar viewer is during a total eclipse. In this case, that's the sun as it eclipses. That one will be annular, however - which means the edge of the sun will remain visible as a bright ring around the moon. Specifically, the plan is for the spacecraft to turn toward us at 11:25 a.m. PT to capture an image of the moon's shadow on Earth during the moment of greatest eclipse over western Kentucky.

Humboldt State University's Department of Physics & Astronomy hosts a special eclipse viewing on Monday, Aug. 21, from 9 a.m.to noon.
So enjoy Monday afternoon's eclipse safely, and keep your fingers crossed for those mostly sunny skies. Instead, you can use a method called pinhole projection: by letting sunlight shine through an opening, such as a hole in a sheet of paper, and onto another surface, you can see a projection of the crescent sun. Also, put your eclipse glasses back on as soon as totality ends. Its longest duration will be near Carbondale, Illinois, where the sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds.
If you plan on viewing the eclipse on your own, there are a few tips to consider. Sunglasses, no matter how dark, are not efficient enough protection, and specialized filter glasses are recommended. "The intense solar rays coming through these devices will damage the solar filter and your eyes". Even with one-day shipping, orders aren't expected to arrive until Monday.
