  • Showers, isolated storms today, tomorrow and Thursday

For the first time in nearly 40 years the path of the moon's shadow passes through the continental United States.

When the sun goes dark August 21 during a total solar eclipse, churches from OR to SC will use the event as an opportunity to illumine their communities with the gospel.

Get Ready for the 2017 Solar Eclipse.

On Amazon.com, for instance, the run on eclipse glasses has left many models out of stock directly from the online retailer, but they continue to be available through third-party sellers.

With the cereal box pinhole projector, Woodard-Latin says the show will just as good, and encourages everyone to come out.

"Fortunately, getting hold of eclipse glasses is very easy", said MacTavish.

The American Astronomical Society is warning people about a glut of counterfeit eclipse glasses for sale online.

"We already have free glasses".


The weather will ultimately determine who gets to see what come August 21.

Throughout the month of August, the Abingdon and Whiteford libraries will offer Story Walk: Eclipse, which encourages families to take a walk around the library while reading a story about the solar eclipse. Hybrid eclipses where an annular eclipse changes into a total eclipse, and vice versa, is also possible. "Some of the other moons in the solar system, like some of Jupiter's large moons are from the distance that Jupiter is, they look bigger than the sun".

"The moon has a two-part shadow the central part called the Umbra which is where you'll see the total solar eclipse", said said astronomer Ken Wilson.

The 2017 total solar eclipse is just weeks away and the excitement is building.

Observers in Africa, Asia and Australia would be able to see the partial eclipse in its entirety. The total eclipse will end in Charleston, S.C., at 2:48 p.m. EDT, and the partial eclipse ends in the continental U.S.in that location at 4:09 p.m. EDT.

Southern Denton County is not in line to see the upcoming solar eclipse in totality, but it will certainly notice it. Special eclipse glasses can protect your eyes.

"Additionally", Mountain View pastor Buddy Hanson said, "if our parking lot is utilized for eclipse watchers, we will take that opportunity to try and share the gospel".

"Even at maximum eclipse it is not safe to look directly at the sun", Violet Mager, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, said in a statement.
