West Tennessee Company makes glasses to safely view August solar eclipse

Despite Missouri Western State University's decision to close campus the day of the total solar eclipse August 21, the school is offering several eclipse activities before and during the weekend of the big event.

Sounds like a once in a lifetime event, don't you think?

Hamilton's concern found its way to the Teton Valley News, so naturally we got in touch with the manufacturer, Canadian firm Total Solar Eclipse, prosolareclipse.cc. MTSU is considered an "Official NASA Community Event" for people to view the eclipse.

"The temperature drops because we blocked out the sun so it gets colder and that generates wind, so you're going to feel wind".

Time and Date's livestream will include user-generated footage from various points along the solar eclipse's path. He describes the trip as a kind of eclipse outreach, making Americans aware of the event and how to view it safely. We have a number of resources on the eclipse - like how to make a pinhole camera. This app comes from Simulation Curriculum, the company behind the mobile astronomy app SkySafari.

Becoming a citizen scientist through The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment program begins with downloading NASA's free GLOBE Observer Eclipse APP, which will fuel a nationwide science experiment.

Do project the image of the sun onto a white surface with a telescope or binoculars.

Carefully check your solar filter or eclipse glasses before using them. Not coincidentally, it's also near the place where the eclipse will last the longest. However, only some states and locations will get the view of the total solar eclipse; others will only be able to watch a partial one. "They'll miss the whole thing". The only safe way is to protect your eyes with special filters in glasses or other devices.

The artwork of the glasses is inspired by St. Jude patient.

For a few magical moments, we will have become one with the cosmos, in flawless syzygy with the three most important bodies in our solar system.

Laurel Kornfeld is a freelance writer and amateur astronomer from Highland Park, NJ, who enjoys writing about astronomy and planetary science. But surprisingly, for one of NASA-funded scientist team, the eclipse will be visible for more than seven minutes, thanks to that duo of retrofitted WB-57F jet planes. For the rest of us, here is what you need to know about the one less than one month from now. If this sounds complicated, no fear - there's a demo mode to let you practice ahead of time.

This online telescope platform will be showing the total solar eclipse live from Elk Creek Campground in Stanley, Idaho, which is directly in the line of totality.

Cities and towns along the path of totality - where there will be about 2 ½ minutes of darkness - are gearing up for the crowds. This app might be ideal for teachers and educators, as it also features activities for families and schools.
