Watch NOVA: Eclipse Over America August 21 at 9:00 p.m. on WCVE PBS/WHTJ PBS.

Total solar eclipses produce harmful rays that can cause blindness.

So in 2017 it's our turn to see a total solar eclipse, but you have to be inside what's called the path of totality, which is a 70-mile wide streak of land that will run from Idaho to SC, including mid and east Tennessee and western Kentucky. St Joseph, Missouri; Kansas City, Kansas; St Louis, Missouri; Bowling Green, Kentucky; Nashville, Tennessee; Greenville, South Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina.

A mother, who has a misguided view of how nature works, asked if it was possible to reschedule the total solar eclipse because the date wasn't practical for her.

You can see times on the eclipse's peak where you live here. This is why doctors recommend wearing special eclipse glasses, which are created to filter out those harmful rays.

Nikon says that despite the fact that the moon covers the sun, the crescent that is seen around the moon is so unsafe that it could cause vision damage and even blindness. There is no need for you to return the product. "Those are going to be some great moments to capture to show the emotion of the whole thing".

The museum is sold out of eclipse glasses, but guests participating in the day's events will have two options for safely viewing the maximum partial eclipse: a community viewing party with solarscopes and a live stream of eclipse sites from across the country in The Lab and Magic Wings Butterfly House. I find it mind blowing that the moon is just the right distance from Earth (240,000 miles) so that is appears to be the same size as the sun. Make sure you know how to manually focus the camera for crisp shots. They can be tested before the eclipse by seeing if they project a nice even round image of the normal Sun. This extraordinary cosmic spectacle will pass through 13 states, and everyone in the continental US will have the opportunity to see at least a partial eclipse, making it the most widely viewed American eclipse of all time. "During totality, the corona has a wide range of brightness so it's best to use a fixed aperture and a range of exposures from approximately 1/1000 to 1 second".

According to NASA, the following are common misconceptions that people have regarding an eclipse. Upload your eclipse images to NASA's Eclipse Flickr Gallery and relive the eclipse through other peoples' images.
