However for those under the "path of totality"-a 70-mile-wide diagonal band running from OR through Kansas and Tennessee and ending in South Carolina-there will be a period of about two to three minutes of total darkness, happening between about 10:15 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. local time, depending on the location". After this year's event, the next solar eclipse in North America will be in 2024, when the total eclipse starts in Mexico and travels northeast through Texas, southern IL and Canada.
A group involving Quaglia, Kentrianakis, and Jubier was unable to get funding for as broad a flash-spectrum experiment as they would have liked - something like 30 separate measurement stations arrayed just inside and just outside the predicted eclipse path.
Many communities that are on the center of the path are hosting special events, including Alliance, Tryon, Stapleton and Grand Island.
"You can end up with totally circular blind spots for the rest of your life so the key is to use good judgement which includes good protection for viewing this which absolutely under no circumstances should even anyone even glance up at the sun during this eclipse".
Hamilton County schools to close for total solar eclipse
But a team of NASA-funded scientists chasing the moon's shadow in retrofitted WB-57F jet planes will experience the rare phenomenon for more than seven extraordinary minutes. National park information can be found at www.nps.gov. What makes this even more fascinating is that it will mark the first time in in 99 years that a total solar eclipse crossed the entire continental United States of America and here in Vancouver. From our vantage point, it'll be a partial solar eclipse, meaning we won't get the full show of stars and darkness. "Nobody has ever live-streamed aerial video footage of a total solar eclipse before", said Angela Des Jardins of Montana University.
During the two and a half minutes of totality, Clemson researchers will snap many pictures, along with everyone along the path in the United States associated with this experiment, to record the sun's activity. About two-thirds of the US population live within one day's drive of the path, and many are planning to make the trek. It will begin its pass over the Upstate at about 1:07 p.m. and finish around 4:02 p.m.
