A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and earth, casting a shadow on earth’s surface.
This is the first total solar eclipse visible in the continental U.S. in 38 years. It’s been nearly 100 years since a total eclipse moved from coast to coast across our country.
More information on the eclipse from NASA here
A 70-mile-wide path from Oregon to South Carolina gets the best show. That’s where the sun will be 100 percent covered.
Other areas, including Ohio, will witness a partial eclipse. In Cleveland, it starts at 1:06 p.m. and ends at 3:51 p.m. The maximum eclipse occurs at 2:30 p.m.
Glasses and viewers:
It’s important to keep your eyes safe! NASA said the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially- eclipsed sun is through a special solar filter.
Beware of counterfeit products. Amazon recalled potentially phony glasses.
A list of NASA-approved vendors for eclipse glasses, handheld views and more is available here. It may be too late to buy solar viewers in time for the eclipse. Many places are sold out.
If you can’t find glasses, you can make a pinhole projection viewer using NASA’s instructions.]
