With a total solar eclipse crossing through the United States on August 21, here are a few reminders about what's to come and how to get the most of your astronomical experience.

It has been almost 40 years since the last total solar eclipse cast its shadow across the contiguous United States. The path of totality - the 70-mile wide area that will experience the most complete periods of darkness - stretches from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. You can follow them here.

Sit at the deck at Riverbend Park or bring a lawn chair and sit in the grassy area to enjoy a spectacular view of the Potomac and the eclipse.

NASA Solar Ambassador and Delano teacher Roberta Parnell talked to parents and kids about the importance of protecting their eyes during the natural event.

Families can join the museum's education team on the plaza of the Butterfly House to view the eclipse as a group using 50 shared eclipse glasses and two solarscopes.

So how do people make sure that their glasses are certified?

Why is everyone so excited about it?

In addition to its rarity, its beauty and magnitude are unlike any other experience, Schneider said. I'm going to tackle the most frequently asked questions for you here. "It's impossible to describe".

Hopefully you're a fan of road-tripping, as flights to Nashville from Pittsburgh are around $400 or more to get there in time for the eclipse. You view an image of it against the backside of the cardboard box.

So you're not necessarily going to feel any pain at all. Day will start to seem like night, despite what the clock says. Birds will stop singing and nest and crickets will begin chirping. Basically, like I said, you're frying the special cells that allow you to see. Below are some of the most important things to know before the day of the 2017 eclipse, as well as cool information on solar eclipses in general, including when and where the next ones will occur.

What Is a Full Solar Eclipse?

You should never assume that you can look away quickly enough to avoid eye damage because every person is different in terms of their retinal sensitivity, and you do not want to risk being the one who damages their eyes just to try to look at the sun. "The reason is because the orbital plane of the Earth around the sun is actually not in line with the orbital plane of the moon around the Earth", he says. The American Astronomical Society recommends buying eclipse glasses from one of the reputed vendors it lists on its website.

When is the next solar eclipse?

The moon often passes slightly higher or lower than the sun in its orbit. As the earth rotates, the moon's shadow traces a path across a portion of the earth. On December 4, 2021, another total solar eclipse will occur, its path of falling across Antarctica, South Africa and the South Atlantic, although totality will only be visible from Antarctica. The moon does not completely cover the sun from our vantage point.
