The eclipse, which will be total in Clarendon County, will happen in the early afternoon hours of August 21.

Dr. Henderson is encouraging everyone to make eclipse viewing plans.

In less than a fortnight, the moon is going to totally cover the sun.

Washington's Department of Transportation is anxious about what will happen if thousands of British Columbians head to OR to watch the solar eclipse later this month.

This forecast will no doubt change, but it's evident that several weather systems could come into play, ending the party in some spots by early that afternoon.

Solar Eclipse - a phenomenon not very rare.

Pierce said the moon will start encroaching on the sun around noon, and the eclipse will finish by about 3 p.m. "Outside the path of totality, skywatchers in the continental United States and other nearby areas will see a partial solar eclipse, in which the moon appears to take a bite out of the sun's disk". In fact, for this area, waiting for the 2024 eclipse may be the better option as the Wheeling area will see a 97.13 percent eclipse with Columbus, Ohio only two hours away seeing a 99.84 percent solar eclipse.

Eclipses in the USA were also rare throughout the 20th Century.

It said the U.S. was ready "along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any nuclear threat from the North.

Just like the other face, the solar eclipse happens when there's a movement of the moon past the sun and earth, making the world experience darkness.

In the East Bay, Chabot Space & Science Center will open from 8 a.m.to 1 p.m. for telescope viewings and will feature a live feed of the total eclipse in the museum's theater.

The path of totality of the total solar eclipse will be crossing 14 states in the America on August 21, 2017.

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.

The easiest way to watch safely if you don't have the eclipse glasses is to use a pinhole projector.

You can now take off your eye protection and look at the eclipsed sun because, at this point, daylight has faded into night. Even if you're outside the main path, you can still get the treat of a partial eclipse. You will need special eclipse or solar viewers to look at the sun safely.

For these glasses to protect your eyes, they must be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 safety standard.
