9 best places to view the solar eclipse in San Francisco


Many people are excited and looking forward to the total solar eclipse on August 21.

Dr. Randy Fitzgerald of Advanced Vision Care in Burlington says that directly viewing the sun as the moon passes in front of it can be risky. But location will determine just how much of the moon is obscuring the sun, so just how much of an eclipse can be seen. Teachers can learn if their schools are in the path of totality, exactly what time it will happen in their area, and what their students can expect to see.

Cantore and Abrams will anchor live coverage of the eclipse as it crosses the country over the course of the day.

You can see a list of recommended brands and vendors here.

On eclipse day, put on your special glasses and view the big show from the Lincoln Saltdogs baseball game, which is hosting an eclipse-themed game. However, at the time of writing, Google has already given away all of the free glasses, but it says that many local libraries across the country will have some to spare. The town of Blairsville will experience 2 minutes of totality while Clayton is closer to the center of the path of the eclipse and enjoys 2 minutes and 35 seconds.

There are four main types of solar eclipse: partial, annular, total and hybrid. Here are video instructions from NASA. The path of totality will create a 70-mile wide path from OR to SC, the rest of the country will see various amounts of coverage. The inclined orbit of the moon relative to earth's orbit around the sun prevents every new moon from eclipsing the sun. Therefore, it will never be safe to watch the eclipse here without glasses. Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases.

The eclipse itself will start at about 1:30 p.m. and reach its peak at about 2:20.

NASA has provided a list of reputable vendors for solar filters and viewers.

Whether you're handy or not, don't even think about watching the eclipse through conventional sunglasses (even ones with very dark lenses). "It's one of the most remarkable, most spectacular naked-eye phenomenon that you can see".

"[Many] are working together to help people understand and view the eclipse safely, and we are delighted to be part of this".

"It's something you remember your entire life, and you will tell stories to your grandchildren about it", Espenak added.
