    A solar eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21 that will be visible for much of North America. This is an animation showing the path of the Moon's shadow across the Earth.

    You will also need special glasses. At the following website you can find a list of libraries that have eclipse glasses for you to use in order to look safely at the sun.

    Happy viewing!

    I heard about this on the radio--so intriguing! Wish I lived more directly in the path.

    or one long sleep for the eternal solar eclipse
  8. I've seen a partial eclipse but never a full one. I'm hoping to travel to the states to see it in full this time.

    Indeed. Everybody knows you get the best view of a solar eclipse by looking straight at it :-D

    Just wear sun glasses. :) or go buy dark sunglasses for a few bucks at the filling station. If it were really that dangerous, I think we'd have all been flooded with media by now if we all needed "special" glasses.

    Lol you can buy the eclipse glasses for a couple of bucks, and libraries are giving them away free. It isn't a money making racket, they're usually just flimsy glasses made of cardboard

    You all put your faith in science this solar eclipse will happen but obviously that's just an animation, so there is no evidence. And Special Glasses? Clearly some ruse by the government elites to keep people in control.

    Spot on, Meli. That's why I find it so upsetting that they standard teach that rubbish in schools.
