Texas will experience a coverage of 68 percent and should be visible with good weather in the Killeen area. "They actually give a fine view of the Sun, but I have no idea if they're blocking sufficient amounts of invisible ultraviolet and infrared radiation as required by the ISO 12312-2 global safety standard", Fienberg says.

After months of waiting and planning, the solar eclipse is finally nearly here!

Staring at the sun without proper filtration, even when it is partially obscured by the moon during an eclipse, can damage or destroy photo-receptor cells of the eye's retina, leaving blind spots in a person's field of vision, experts said.

According to the Great American Eclipse website, between 1.8 million and 7.4 million people are expected to travel locations along the path of totality, when the moon briefly blocks out the sun completely, that stretches from OR to SC.

Total solar eclipses often are compared to near-religious experiences by ardent eclipse chasers, known to travel thousands of miles to remote locations to see the rare events.

Stocks, dollar extend slide as US-North Korea tensions intensify

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.

Camp sites in OR have been winning at an auction for $500 a night, compared to the normal $28 a night, and some premium spots with unobstructed views are going for $2,000.

Lamade and Volunteer stadiums are lighted, so officials plan to turn on the lights to allow play to continue when the eclipse begins in central Pennsylvania at around 1:14 p.m.

While they can't anticipate the eclipse phenomena like humans who read about it ahead of time, family pets are unlikely to have a primeval reaction to the eclipse like their wild animal relatives.

Scientists have put the last eclipse at 600 million years from now. This is why, despite the size difference, the moon appears to completely cover the sun during a total solar eclipse.

FTSE falls as North Korea details strike plan
North Korea had responded to Trump's previous promise to unleash "fire and fury", with a threat to land a missile near the U.S. The market's main backstop in times of strain, gold, hit a two-month high of $1,282 an ounce amid the nervousness.

Time: 9 am to 3:30 p.m. Family showcase at 3 p.m. This might be the only total solar eclipse I will witness in my lifetime so I'm looking forward to seeing the dark sky for couple of minutes during the daylight.

Tickets, which include the cost of eclipse-viewing glasses, are $12 for adults, $10 for children age 12 and under and $7 for planetarium members. When viewing the eclipse, keep in mind to protect your eyes.

August 21 2017 will be the longest in the history of the solar Eclipse.

"It's definitely not safe just to look at it with binoculars or a telescope", Bridges said.

Useful tip 2: "Your sunglasses will not protect you from certain death if you look at the sun".
