Scientists prepare for rare phenomenon during total solar eclipse

Library to host solar eclipse programs

Don't fret, everyone will have the opportunity to experience a partial eclipse.

The night before, the pair will spend the night stargazing in a geodesic dome in the OR wilderness. And given how reliant many of us have become on having access to the internet and other communication access on the go, it's something you'll want to take into account when planning your eclipse-watching activities. The astronomical feat happens when the sun, moon and Earth align completely. The August total eclipse is hitting superstar status thanks to its high-profile path across the US. The path of totality crosses over portions of many major cities.

"Those who have been fortunate enough to experience a total solar eclipse usually describe it as a "moment of awe", Schlacht said in a press release.

Asus ZenFone 4 to be released on August 19
The phone comes with 8GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of internal memory which can be further expandable via a micro-SD card slot. The head of marketing at Asus , Marcel Campos, seems too keen to hold off his excitement about the new phone launches.

Google has already partnered with others, like the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and NASA, to bring two million pairs of eclipse glasses to around 4,800 local libraries in the country. The solar eclipse starts at 11:37 a.m. CDT and totality begins at 1:02 p.m. CDT, lasting for a little under a minute and a half.

Hawley, a physics and astronomy professor and the director of engineering physics at the University of Kansas, advised booking any travel tickets and hotel reservations way ahead of time and to expect plenty of traffic on the road. The sun is massively bigger than the moon, but our star is so far away from Earth that the much closer moon can cover it up when seen from our planet-bound perspective. Kentuckians will have some of the best seats in the house, but safely viewing the eclipse is important.

Make sure the glasses carry this rating: ISO 12312-2. It's still the sun, "said Keith Barger".

NASA has teamed up with medical and science professionals to provide additional safety information and alternative methods for safe viewing.

According to experts at NASA, one popular theory is that the bands originate in the atmosphere due to highly unpredictable air cells that help to "focus and de-focus the sharp-edged light from the solar surface".

- Never use homemade filters - such as potato chip bags, smoked glass, exposed film, DVDs or "space blankets" - and don't try viewing through any ordinary sunglasses. The glasses will be available to attendees at the event on a first-come, first-served basis, Library Director Jackie Icenhower said, and won't be handed out in advance. "It's one of the most remarkable, most spectacular naked-eye phenomenon that you can see".
