If you haven't placed an order yet - or your glasses are arriving after the solar eclipse - don't panic yet. It will cross the OR coast and exit near Charleston South Carolina.
However، the total solar eclipse will also have imperceptible effects، such as the sudden loss of extreme ultraviolet radiation from the Sun، which generates the ionised layer of Earth's atmosphere، called the ionosphere.
On August 21، the Moon will slide in front of the Sun and for a brief moment، day will melt into a dusky night in the US. This will not mean it will be 68% darker than normal in Syracuse.
The partial solar eclipse will last 2 hours, 48 minutes, 58 seconds in Roanoke. Staring at the sun without proper filtration, even when it is partially obscured by the moon during an eclipse, can damage or destroy photo-receptor cells of the eye's retina, leaving blind spots in a person's field of vision, experts said. It begins at 1:17 pm Monday August 21st, reach its peak at 2:38 pm and end at 3:53 pm. That is largely because this year's spectacle will be the first in 99 years to span the entire continental United States - the world's third most populous nation - across a 70-mile-wide (113-km) path over 14 states, from the Pacific coast of OR to the Atlantic shore of SC.
2,955 Speed in miles per hour that the total eclipse will be travelling when it when it first reaches the OR coast at 12:05 pm EDT. The Moon's shadow will block the Sun's light، and weather permitting، those within the path of totality will be treated to a view of the Sun's outer atmosphere، called the corona. The total eclipse leaves the SC coast at 2:44 pm EDT.
Many people are calling the upcoming solar eclipse a once in a lifetime event. The next total eclipse won't occur in the USA until April 2024 and the next total eclipse won't touch Virginia until May 2078. That will be a big deal for us!
