"It now appears that some companies are printing the ISO logo and certification label on fake eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers made with materials that do not block enough of the Sun's ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation to make them truly safe", AAS explained on its website.

WYFF News 4 Chief Meteorologist John Cessarich is getting you ready for the total solar eclipse!

NASA has teamed up with The College of Charleston to make sure the solar eclipse is enjoyable to everyone on August 21st.

But a satellite orbiting Earth in the same direction as the shadow of the moon racing across the surface of the planet can experience totality far longer.

Solar eclipses aren't new or especially mysterious to grid operators.

As students return to school, a rare and lovely natural phenomenon will help kick off the school year.

The city of Carbondale (USA) will be unique - there will be two total solar eclipses within seven years - in 2017 and 2024.

There's no video from the basement, and the lead detective says he now suspects it was purposely erased and charges may result. Bream said in a brief email to The Associated Press that he won't comment or be interviewed, following his attorney's advice.

But a partial eclipse is pretty cool, too, said Ken Munson, a member of the South Bay Astronomical Society. Once the eclipse has begun, the moon continues to eat its way across the blazing sun before darkness falls, the temperature drops and the sky is dominated by a radiant crown around the moon.

- When millions of Americans turn their faces skyward to witness the nation's first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in a century, many will reach for specially designed sunglasses, but experts caution the public to stay clear of unsafe counterfeits. It will span coast to coast, from OR to SC. The deepest part of the eclipse will be at 2:25 p.m. when just shy of 90 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon. The event will take place on the lawn to the northeast of the 1918 Hoist House.

"I'm a little nervous about the eclipse, because I know we're going to end up seeing people that end up having damage from it", Batra said.

And then there was the most popular query about whether or not someone looking at an eclipse without eclipse glasses will actually go blind.

"We will also have telescopes set up with filters so people can look at it", said Huston.

It should be remembered that though the Moon and covers the Sun, it does not mean that the phenomenon can be observed without special instruments. If no filters are available, it is best to use a pinhole camera to project the eclipse indirectly. NASA had not been lacking in reminding everyone to use proper protective gear to enjoy the eclipse without the worry of causing damage to their eyes.
