The next total eclipse of the sun in Louisville

To allow students to fully appreciate the experience, the school day in Thomas County Schools will be extended by 30 minutes on the day of the eclipse.

"For DSLR cameras, the best way to determine the correct exposure is to test settings on the uneclipsed Sun beforehand".

On March 7, 1970, the path of totality ran up the east coast of the United States.

The Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever stamp changes from an eclipse image to a moon with the heat of your finger. "So that means that ... most of the time, the moon is above or below the sun in the sky, and so it doesn't cover it up". When the sun is totally blocked, its outer atmosphere (the corona) becomes visible, and it has been observed as big jets and streamers of light rippling around the sun. I find it mind blowing that the moon is just the right distance from Earth (240,000 miles) so that is appears to be the same size as the sun. It's been described as stunning.

In the Hanford area, we will see a partial solar eclipse.

To ensure safety, the American Astronomical Society is now recommending people buy their eclipse glasses from one of the vendors on its curated list.

Because of the sudden darkness and drop in temperature, it's very possible to witness sudden changes in animals' behavior.

Wide-open pupils are one of the reasons that viewing a solar eclipse can be unsafe. This is why doctors recommend wearing special eclipse glasses, which are created to filter out those harmful rays.

Go outside and hold the sheet of paper with the hole in it towards to sun. It's a long duration event so spread your looks out.

According to Dr. Sweeting, the eclipse will begin at 1:05 p.m., while maximum coverage will occur at 2:36 p.m., and the event will end at 4:01 p.m. Children will be closely monitored, and parents who do not wish for their children to participate may opt their children out of the event.

Shadow bands will appear as dark, thin objects that race around on the surface of light objects right before and after total solar eclipses, nearly like tiny snakes dashing back and forth or moving slivers of sunshine found at the bottom of a pool.

"One solar eclipse activity I hope to see less of is the sometimes-ridiculous effort to hunt down stars and planets during totality".
