Some Americans will be lucky enough to witness a total solar eclipse twice in just seven years, as the paths of totality cross, creating an "X" with an intersection in an area spanning across Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky. We know that there are an average of two or three eclipses every year so they are not that rare, but this one is the first to cross the entire USA continent since 1918 and the first with a totality exclusive to the United States since 1776. So users are able to see what the eclipse would look like if you were standing on the sun, or looking down on the North Pole.

Free, 1:30 p.m., MIT Kresge Oval, 77 Mass. Central time, and maxing out at around 1:37.

We know to expect a multitude of otherworldly sensations as the sun is completely blocked out by the moon but I wonder, what will the animals think? The rare part of it is when the eclipses occur in specific locations. The one-word answer is: proximity.

"We want people to be very careful looking at the eclipse", Dobek said. "And the last totality that touched the continental 48 [states], was February 26, 1979". What really happens is the moon lines up to block the sun and thus cast a shadow on the Earth. Other effects, says Wooten, will be felt as well. "It will typically drop 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit". "The Eclipse Across America will provide an opportunity for students to experience phenomena such as lighting, shadows, temperature and wind changes, and even animal behavior".

Catholic schools can also allow ball caps to be worn on Monday in addition to the viewing glasses.

"Get a flat mirror, and cover it with paper; punch a hole about an inch in the paper", said Wooten. More information on the solar eclipse can be found here. Unless the sun is at least 75 percent covered by the moon, you may not even notice much illumination change at all unless you are aware the eclipse is happening. Urquhart says the next eclipse like the one happening Monday will be April 8, 2024, and its path will be right through Dallas. "We're getting a spring tide".

Every so often the moon passes directly in front of the sun, blacking out most of its light. St. Charles schools are also moving all outdoor activities indoors, with the exception of dismissal and changing of classes, during the eclipse. In the center of that 70-mile wide path, the total eclipse will last from 2 minutes to 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
