Partial solar eclipse will be viewable from Newport on August 21st

On Aug. 21, it's lights out, if just for a few minutes - that's when the moon will block the sun in a total solar eclipse.

This event map is a Google Maps overlay, and the events don't necessarily have to lie within the path of totality, which runs from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. The path of the eclipse started in the Northwest, beginning in Washington and traveling east to North Dakota before moving into Canada.

"The path of totality, the path where this moon blocks the sun's light, the main body of the sun, comes in through OR, comes across the United States and exits out of SC", said Nicholeen Viall, a NASA astrophysicist.

Thursday in court, however, Swift said the man had copped an undeniably intentional feel of what was most definitely her buttocks. Haskell admitted he participated in efforts toward getting Mueller fired, but that it was ultimately Bob Call's decision to make.

On May 20, 2012, a portion of the western United States experienced an annular solar eclipse. The episodes also feature eclipse simulations that show skywatchers what they can expect to see in various areas along the path of totality, according to a statement from CuriosityStream, the online streaming service where the documentary can be viewed. The moon will cover 95% of the sun over Macon.

According to NASA, this is the first time a total eclipse will be seen in the contiguous United States since 1979. "Even though the moon will block most of its light, the sun won't be safe to look at during the partial eclipse".

Anyone within the 70-mile-wide path that stretches through fourteen states from OR to SC will experience a total eclipse, arguably nature's most awe inspiring sight.

While we have not heard of this happening locally, there are reports of travelers in other states who booked hotels for the eclipse long in advance, before it was more publicized.

Comcast is hosting an event the day of the eclipse where attendees will get protective glasses. The next day, you'll go up in your private jet, and get a bird's eye view of the eclipse as it happens. Be sure to check exact times of totality if you're lucky enough to be in the path.

In less than two weeks, on August 21, the sun will disappear across America.

In order to view the eclipse you will need to wear glasses with special-purpose solar filters.
