Why is it called the "Great American Eclipse?"

There is a 70-mile stretch from SC through OR that will have the best views. Here in Moscow, totality hovers near the 94 percent mark.

The library will also have educational resources and display materials for those interested in learning more about the sun, moon, stars and space. "Safe solar filters produce a view of the sun that is comfortably bright (like the full moon), in focus, and surrounded by dark sky".

For those outside of the zone of totality, NASA has warned people not to look directly into the partial eclipse.

If you take a cardboard box and make a small pinhole at one end, an image will project through the pinhole on the opposite end of the box's wall.

If you waited until just a few days before the eclipse to get protective glasses or a filter, your chances of tracking them down now are pretty slim.

Rock Island Library will offer guided solar eclipse viewing at the RI 30/31 branch 3059 30th Street.

South Korea joint drills may bring catastrophe to region, says Pyongyang
Kim told Guterres the resolution "constitutes a flagrant infringement upon (North Korea's) sovereignty and an open challenge to it". "But we don't need to be impatient", he said.

But if it's cloudy and you've traveled for the total solar eclipse, prepare for disappointment.

The AAS warns that fake solar eclipse-viewing glasses are being sold ahead of the August 21 event and to be cautious when purchasing them. Moscow High School science teacher Pat Blount, along with the University of Idaho's NASA club and the Moscow Library, released a data gathering balloon.

It's not a "total" eclipse that will be visible in our area. However, the location to view the eclipse at its best and for the longest has been pinpointed as Hopkinsville, Kentucky at 1:20pm local time. We will also release another balloon.

Kopp said he has treated many patients with eclipse burns to their eyes. This can be good for children viewing the eclipse who may try to remove their glasses before totality is reached or who might not get their glasses back on by the time the sun peaks back out. It is open to customers, employees and the general public.

While the solar eclipse is an event not to be missed, remember safety first. It is absolutely necessary that the sun be observed with a safe solar filter or by safe protection methods. Always wear protective, worldwide standard glasses.
