Solar eclipse: What will I see in Florida?

Columbia Cashing in on Solar Eclipse Crowds

Griffith Observatory welcome all to come up a see the “Great American Eclipse” happening on Aug 21. The eclipse will only be partial over Southern California

We are mere days away from the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, which will be visible to all of North America.

By now you have seen numerous reports on the solar eclipse that will occur on August 21.

The full solar eclipse will be visible across the country from OR to SC for the first time since 1918.

The only safe time to look at an eclipse without eye protection is when the moon completely blocks out the sun's rays, which won't happen in MI. The first one starts at 1 p.m., with the next one a 2 p.m., and the last at 3 p.m. Hartline says the Mobile Astronomy Lab is free for all to attend.

Regardless of location, the eclipse will be starting at roughly 1:30 p.m.

Check listings for additional air-times.

If you go to a viewing event, check to see if eclipse glasses will be provided.

Eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers are low-priced and can be purchased from many retailers. Go to BBB.org to look for accredited businesses, and read reviews and complaints before you book.

If you are looking for a place to stay during the eclipse, be careful if you are booking through a site like Airbnb, VRBO, or Craigslist. 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. We've been hearing a lot about the total solar eclipse that lasts for 2 minutes, but let me clear this up: It will not be a total eclipse here in Michiana, and it doesn't just last 2 minutes.

If you plan to watch the solar eclipse, you have options. Yet here's something that you may not have thought of: How will a total or even a partial solar eclipse affect homes and workplaces that use solar power?

What time will the partial eclipse happen in NY? If the solar filter shows any signs of damage, they are not safe to use. Goggles, homemade filters, or sunglasses, even very dark ones, will not protect your eyes. You won't be able to see any part of the eclipse if the view is obstructed by cloud cover. Not only is what I described above so incredibly unbelievable, but what makes it even more special is how rare it is.

Younger people are most vulnerable to these injuries, making it imperative for parents to supervise children during the eclipse and be sure they're viewing it properly.

As the expected solar eclipse approaches this month, authorities have warned people of buying bogus sunglasses in the market.

Don't attempt to view the eclipse through any other means, whether it's a camera, telescope, binoculars or other device.
