If you can't get your hands on a pair of eclipse shades, you can still see an eclipse through pinhole viewing.

It will look like a typical overcast, dark kind of a day.

This forecast will no doubt change, but it's evident that several weather systems could come into play, ending the party in some spots by early that afternoon.

That's it, you can use all the tricks in the bag that your phone is capable of when shooting the eclipse on August 21, just do not forget to get a set of solar filters for both you, and your trusted handset. It actually slows down to 1,462 miles per hour when it reaches Kentucky because the moon's shadow hits the earth more directly there. Plants totaling about 4 GW of capacity-mostly in North Carolina and Georgia-will be at least 90% obscured.

Fresh floods hit Assam, 11 lakh people affected in 19 districts

Montreal won't be the best place to see the solar eclipse, but it will definitely be visible. NASA has released a map to find out the exact time and how long it will last wherever you are along the path of totality.

The email sent by Amazon doesn't specify the exact nature of the defect, but does warn against using the glasses to view the eclipse directly.

What is a solar eclipse?

The college will also show NASA's livestream of the eclipse in the Weaver Library.

The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable eclipse glasses and handheld viewers on its website - stamped with this approval code.

Homemade filters and ordinary sunglasses don't provide enough protection for looking at the sun or the eclipse. Also, be sure your binoculars or telescope are fitted with a solar filter or you can seriously damage your eyes. Use proper eye protection for safe viewing! "I plan to avoid the bid crowds so I can enjoy the event". Looking at the sun for even short periods can literally sunburn your cornea and blister the cells, causing painful irritation that if you're lucky goes away.
