Best places to watch the solar eclipse

The physicist's 90-minute, multi-media lecture was scheduled as a way to provide information about the upcoming celestial event. "If you're not looking for it, you'll probably miss it".

Of course you can take a picture on your phone or other device of the eclipse without a filter, but since we won't have totality here in MI they won't turn out that well. The amount of solar energy that will be lost is equivalent to the power generated by 15 coal-generated plants.

The shadow of the so-called "great American eclipse" will pass right across the mainland, from one coast to the other.

Far northeast Georgia, including Blue Ridge, Blairsville, Hiawassee, Helen, Clayton, and Toccoa, is in the path of totality. It's an "All American Total Solar Eclipse", meaning a shadow will be cast from coast to coast.

It's been 99 years since the last total solar eclipse was visible all around the U.S. And now for two lucky contest winners, Airbnb and National Geographic are offering up front row seats to watch this stunning event take place on August 21.

Here are the details about the actual event: the eclipse will pass through the US from OR to SC.

You can see a partial eclipse, where the moon covers only a part of the sun, anywhere in North America (see "Who can see it?").

This 65- to 70-mile wide corridor stretches from Waldport to Pacific City, centered around Depoe Bay, and will pass east through Salem Madras and Baker City.

So, here's how it's going to play out.

The eclipse on August 21 is projected to be the most viewed eclipse in history. That's the outer atmosphere of the sun.

Where Can You See It?

Birds roost. It only lasts a few minutes.

"It's something I heard you can pretty much feel in your soul", Barbara Miller, programs manager at Broward County Main Library, said.

Harris explains that a total solar eclipse is even more unbelievable. You'll what one that comes with a tripod so pictures don't come out blurry. But check before you go because hotels in prime viewing locations along the eclipse's path have been sold out for months. However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing - which requires some type of filtering device and indirect viewing where you project an image of the sun onto a screen. Eclipse glasses will be available on board. "The thing about a solar eclipse is it's probably the most tangible and impressive thing you can see", said Angela Speck, professor and director of astronomy at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
