The last time the United States of America saw a full Solar Eclipse that crossed across the country was June 8, 1918. This Monday, August 21, 2017 you can witness this natural phenomenon, “The Great American Solar Eclipse”. The ellipse will begin at Lincoln City, Oregon, at 10:15 a.m. PDT (1:15 p.m. EDT) and continue across the center of the US bringing a few minutes of darkness in its path to each state in certain areas, where other area’s will see a partial eclipse. It will end at 2:48 p.m. EDT near Charleston, South Carolina.
Warning!! It is not safe to view this eclipse without protecting your eyes.
One thing we have today that was not available in 1918 are Solar Viewing Glasses or also called Eclipse Glasses and Personal Solar Filters.(Sunglasses cannot be used in place of these viewing glasses).
