Clemson to participate in upcoming Solar Eclipse

Clemson to participate in upcoming Solar Eclipse

The total solar eclipse will occur on Monday, Aug. 21 and will be visible in totality only within a specific band across the United States with Excelsior Springs listed as a prime viewing location. For example, the next total solar eclipse will be in 2019 and will be visible in parts of Chile and Argentina.

The path of totality is a roughly 70-mile-wide swath running southeast from OR to SC.

To catch a the best glimpse, drive to western North Carolina to places such as Andrews, Cullowhee, or Murphy. The total eclipse will begin around 2:37 p.m.in Clemson and last for 2 minutes and 37 seconds before heading through Greenville and Columbia to Charleston.

35758 (Madison County) - The eclipse will peak at 1:30 p.m. CDT with the moon obscuring 96.6 percent of the sun. "We endeavor to use the most cutting edge tools, resources, and communication", said NASA on its website. The celebration at the state capitol will include concerts, NASA's traveling "Journey to Tomorrow" exhibit, presentations from NASA scientists, and a live broadcast of the eclipse by NASA TV.

Start of eclipse: 9:10 p.m. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger then the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight and turning day into darkness.

Lattis says that the effects of the partial eclipse in Wisconsin will be subtle, but worth watching nonetheless.

According to the release, every K-12 teacher will be provided lesson plans about the eclipse and safety to present in the weeks leading up to the event.

NASA, along with student teams across the USA, is sending high-altitude balloons that will test the ability of life to survive beyond Earth as well as livestream footage of the upcoming total solar eclipse from the edge of space.

No matter how dark they are or what their UV rating is, normal sunglasses will not be enough to protect your eyes as you look directly at the Sun.

"The sun will look like a thin crescent moon", Lattis said.

Eclipse glasses will first be given to those who attend the solar eclipse classes. We will post links to eclipse viewing webcasts, eclipse photos and news throughout August.
