Solar Eclipse 2017

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.

Wasn't that impressive from here plus it was overcast so I didn't bother. My sister made a pinhole camera just to look at it.

I heard that you should pray (extra) upon seeing it. I haven't seen one in years because we were told that if you look directly it damages your eyes

There are protective glasses for it.

how can the sun have a shadow on it, its just a massive ball that radiates tons of light

 

Lol, to clarify, I was just describing it as I saw it through the glasses. The moon looked like a shadow.
