Lots of people! Everyone in the contiguous United States, in fact, everyone in North America plus parts of South America, Africa, and Europe will see at least a partial solar eclipse, while the thin path of totality will pass through portions of 14 states.

Residents near Dallas, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Buffalo will all see a total solar eclipse. You'll see a white circle on the paper at the end of your box and can watch as the moon eats away at its shape as the eclipse is happening! When the sun, earth and moon come in a flawless straight line and as the Sun s rays falls on the Earth and its (Earth s) shadow falls onto a patch of space and the moon enters that patch a lunar eclipse is seen, he said.

"They won't be able to look at eclipse without pair of glasses so these enable you to be protected from the sun", said Chris O'Hara, Manatee County libraries' youth services coordinator. According to NASA, these five manufacturers have certified their eclipse glasses and hand-held solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard: American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium, Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17. Then, come time, Samantha (Page, youth librarian) will take them out to see if they can see anything.

South Jersey should get a glimpse at the solar eclipse around 2:30 p.m.

However, local skywatchers will still be within the moon's penumbral shadow.

Times for partial and total phases of the eclipse vary depending on your location. If you miss this one, you'll have to wait seven more years (until April 2024) before another partial solar eclipse will be seen in our region.

While New York isn't in that path, Rice says we will still get a good view.

No matter how much of the eclipse is available, properly viewing it with special glasses it is a must.

A red hue over a part of the moon will also be visible.

Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical devices.

It'll be the first solar eclipse visible from the continental United States in 38 years, and the first one that goes coast-to-coast in 99 years.
