A solar eclipse is an awesome sight to take in - just make sure you do so safely.

The college is pulling out all stops to make the "Great Eclipse Caper Event" educational, safe and fun. The last coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in the country was 99 years ago, in June 1918, and the next eclipse in the country will be in April 2024 going from Texas to Maine.

Places nearby the path of the total eclipse, like Washington state, experience the total eclipse.

The best of the apps are the Smithsonian's Eclipse 2017 and Eclipse Safari, which offer science history, and best practices for why you need to wear your solar glasses during the time of totality, respectively.

If you're hoping to catch a glimpse of August 21's solar eclipse, buyers beware. It will start in Texas and go in a northeast direction, through OH and up into Canada. These may be ordered online but care must be taken, as several companies are selling solar glasses that do not meet minimum safety standards. Further south, in the Plains, thunderstorms will be less likely but are now predicted to be higher than average on August 21.

"Therefore, the city believes that it is in the best interest and safety of residents, visitors, and citizens to prohibit tour vehicles, including horse carriages, small tour busses, etc. from operating on the peninsula on August 21, 2017, to help alleviate and assist with traffic congestion", as stated in the Department of Livability and Tourism's request to the Traffic and Transportation Committee.

Hamilton is not in the path to see a total eclipse, but will see the sun about 95 percent covered.

NASA will also be taking high-definition images and measurements of visible and infrared light from two WB-57 jet planes flying over the path of totality in Missouri, Illinois and Tennessee. The partial eclipse starts around 11:41 a.m. Blair said the sun will not be fully uncovered again until 3:58 p.m. Maximum coverage will happen at 1 p.m. "I think the coolest part will actually be able to hear whether any of the animals react". But these take-your-breath-away eclipses usually occur in the middle of the ocean somewhere, though, or near the sparsely populated top or bottom of the world.

Makanda is designated as the nation's spot of the longest total duration of eclipse totality, at 2 minutes, 41.6 seconds.

Satellites and ground telescopes will also aim at the sun and at the moon's shadow cutting a swath some 60 to 70 miles wide (97 to 113 kilometers) across the land.

"Because we're going around the Earth every 90 minutes, about the time it takes the sun to cross the United States, we'll get to see it three times", Randy Bresnik said Friday during a NASA Facebook session. Not only must there be a new moon, but the sun, moon and Earth must all be in a straight line. The orbit of the moon is tilted five degrees from the orbit of the earth around the sun. "How fast is it moving?' Now we have spacecraft that are around and on the moon, and the precision of our radio transmitters and tracking is far more accurate than just watching the moon cross the sky".
