"Absolutely not. It's only during a total solar eclipse that you can take off your eclipse glasses, look up where the sun should be with your naked eye and see a sky you've never seen before".

The earth's and moon's orbits will align in such a way on August 21 that the moon will block part of the earth from seeing the sun.

Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center, Townsend, TN is hosting a Solar Eclipse Tour to Cades Cove.

A solar eclipse will block almost 90 percent of sunlight in Stillwater next month as the moon's shadow travels across the contiguous United States on August 21.

"You will probably be able to see Jupiter and Venus fairly close to the sun, and if you look, it will look like the sunrise in every direction", Howard told Channel 9.

The partial solar eclipse begins locally at 11:37 a.m., reaches its maximum point at 1:06 p.m., and ends at 2:35 p.m.

"If you get well inside the path of totality you ought to be able to get more than two minutes of this total eclipse".

On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse will cross the entire country, coast-to-coast, for the first time since 1918.

NASA has been alerted that some unsafe eclipse glasses are being sold to consumers. Looking directly at the sun, even during a partial eclipse, can easily damage your eyes. We can see the total eclipse when the moon completely blocks the sun's bright face up to 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

IL is just one of 14 states that will witness the total solar eclipse.

If you happened to be sitting on the moon facing Earth, it would look just like the moon is casting a dark circular shadow - called the umbra - on the Earth. "We're suggesting our area residents try to do their shopping and stock up on enough staple foods before then to carry them through Tuesday, Aug. 22, the day after the eclipse", McGregor said.

NASA will have a live stream of the event here.

"We are expecting 10,000 people to come to the museum and see the eclipse here with us", said Jennifer Howell, spokeswoman for the museum. It may not be a complete loss of sun, but a little goes a long way, as temperatures will drop several degrees during the event. Meteorologist Travis Herzog says at peak eclipse in Houston, the sun will be 67% covered by the moon.

- Use solar filters on camera lenses, binoculars, and telescopes.

"Photographing the solar eclipse coming up is going to bring some challenges for your average camera and your average person, but [it's] nothing that can't be overcome", Whittaker said. Whittaker says there are many different styles of solar glasses. "It's hard to see a lot of the sky at night", she said.
