This means, weather permitting, residents will see a majority of the sun's diameter covered by the moon and experience unnatural darkness in the midday. The partial eclipse will be viewable for only an hour, between 6:20 and 7:20 a.m. HST. The movie will start 1 p.m. on Monday Aug. 14.

For this area, the event will begin at 11:54 a.m. and end at 2:53 p.m., with the about 89 percent of the sun eclipsed at 1:26 p.m.

We're just over a week away from the epic eclipse, and one Nashville university has made a decision to delay the first day of class so students and teachers can enjoy the sight.

According to multiple studies, with the eclipse comes a unsafe form of radiation that can cause severe eye damage and in some cases, blindness.

While people are graced with the chance to watch solar eclipses each year, it commonly occurs just twice in a year so the hype that it builds up once scientists announce that the world can expect to see them at certain day and time is understandable.

Read and follow all directions that come with your glasses or filters. The eclipse this year will last no more than three minutes in its totality. One way of looking at it is that it's basically the difference between turning a light on or off. Turn away from the sun before removing the solar filter. Viewing the sun or an eclipse using any other glasses or filters could result in loss of vision or permanent blindness. "The intense solar rays coming through the devices will damage your eyes".

Apple already confirmed that the iPhone can take pictures of the upcoming solar eclipse no problemo, but that's not all there is to it, if you are planning on documenting this galactic event with your smartphone. The clinic is located at 2311 Yorkshire Drive. The event is free to those who pre-registered.

Traffic will likely be heavy on any road between a major city and the eclipse path. Only in areas that see the maximum total eclipse and during the peak eclipse is it safe to remove glasses (and that is a fairly short window). This certification is used to indicate they are safe for viewing the sun.
