And now, people in Yolo County can join the county library staff for two special solar eclipse viewing events.

Smith was in college in North Carolina at the time of the 1970 total solar eclipse.

There has been a lot written about the total solar eclipse that will occur on August 21, 2017, but did you know that there will also be plenty of unusual and fantastic phenomena that will accompany this eclipse? It became very dark, even the stars could be seen; it seemed to men as if everything were green, and the Sun became like a crescent of the Moon, from the horns of which a glow similar to that of red-hot charcoals was emanating. For those who want to make sure that they witness the solar eclipse in its totality, the path of the 2017 total solar eclipse will meander through 12 states along a 2,500-mile stretch of land from OR to SC.

In our area the eclipse will begin around 1 p.m. on August 21, reach maximum coverage around 2:30, and end around 4 p.m.

"We're talking about a sliver of the moon's shadow that crosses the surface of the Earth", Lazarova said. "But we only get these total ones where they're lined up just right about every 18 months". According to NASA, the total eclipse lasted just over a minute. "For Kearney, the previous one was more than 800 years ago".

Excitement continues to build about the upcoming total solar eclipse, but as you make plans to watch the rare event, don't forget to protect your eyes. Most cameras, including many found on phones, have adjustable exposures, which can help you darken or lighten your image during the event.

"So, when the moon is orbiting around the Earth, it actually has an incline compared to that sun-Earth plane [of] about 5 degrees", he explains.

If you're lucky enough to be in the path of totality, you may notice a change in the sky's hue as the shadow moves closer to you, Young says. Solar eclipse glasses use lenses which reduce the amount of transmitted light to safe levels and are the only eyewear approved for use during eclipse events. However, at totality, when the moon completely blocks the sun, make sure to remove the filter so you can see the sun's outer atmosphere - the corona.
