Observers in the moon's umbral shadow will have the same events unfold as with the partial eclipse but much more noticeably. The path of the total solar eclipse will cut throughout the United States and will be viewed by millions.

For those who are just now coming out from under a rock or emerging from a bunker in some sort of "Blast From The Past" situation, there's a huge event happening that's got everyone in America jumping out of their socks.

Gracison Saylors has never seen a solar eclipse.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the light of the sun from reaching Earth, and the moon casts a shadow onto Earth, according to NASA.

The last one to thrill Kansas City happened in 1806, 211 years ago.

People in India will be able to witness the August 21 total solar eclipse on a YouTube channel, thanks to an initiative by Space India.

Pickens recommended looking at other things besides the sun during totality.

People living along a narrow band from OR to SC may see a total solar eclipse if the skies are clear. And solar filters are available for telescopes, which allow viewers to see sun flares, sun spots and the outer layers of the sun safely.

Scientists say this is the "sight of a lifetime", but there's a catch. (Find out the exact eclipse time for your area here, and we have separate audio stories above and below for those in the path of the total or partial eclipse, respectively.) Also, we want your eclipse plans, stories and photos.

Whether you're an amateur photographer or a selfie master, try out these tips for photographing the eclipse. In 2017, officials estimate 1 million people will converge onto the path of totality in OR alone, with millions joining in across the country.

But every so often, there's a narrow window when the Earth, sun and moon align.

The path cuts north of New Mexico, so August 21's view won't be quite as striking in Albuquerque, since only 73 percent of the sun will be covered.

Since then, Zeiler has traveled the world to see seven more: from a farm in rural Austria to the tropical rainforests of Gabon to the ice-covered Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. Ninety-five percent is related to the solar eclipse. Two minute will seem like 8 seconds and you will remember those seconds as long as you live.

Don't have faith in I-25?

Nadine Sullivan, president of the Eco Depot, 1326 E. Sprague Ave., said her business handed out 100 in one hour after it opened and gave away another 100 before running out. Because stonehenge, but with cars.

No way, travel sucks.

"We were originally going to book an RV park in the eclipse path in Wyoming, but everywhere was full", he said.

OK, dealing with horrendous amounts of traffic is not your idea of fun.

Be sure you know the capabilities of your camera before Eclipse Day. See the difference yourself in this simulation. "Normally if you look directly at the sun, the natural response is to squint, shield your eyes, blink or turn away". The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m.

Denver Museum of Nature & Science is holding solar-scope viewing and special events from 9 a.m.to 2 p.m.

Crowds frighten me, how can I watch this at home (or at work)? But let's be honest, you won't really be working (you procrastinator, you). "So, it's about an hour and a half across the country".

The path of totality will stretch along a route from OR to SC. It'll be your own virtual party from the safety of your home or office.

"The more I talked to people, the more I realized people think they can look at the eclipse, and it concerned me", said doctor of optometry Elizabeth M. Atkinson from Atkinson Eye Care in Algonquin. Now you've saved yourself the hassle of driving and camping. Those who have seen totality say it changes you, humbles you before the cosmos. If you're watching from Statesville, there will be direct light from the sun at all times which can cause permanent damage to your eyes.
