Eclipse August 21, 2017: An Overview

Do you see an eclipse in your everyday life? The answer is No. The last total solar eclipse was in Marsh 9, 2016 and  in August 21, 2017, it will be another one, but this time, United States will enjoy the most spectacular life event. The term eclipse is derived from the ancient Greek  noun (ekleipsis) which means "the downfall". An eclipse occurs when a planet is temporarily obscured, either by passing into the shadow of another planet or by having another planet pass between it and the viewer, it is usually used to describe a lunar or solar eclipse. 
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through Earth's shadow, on the other hand, a solar eclipse happens when the Moon blocks the light of the Sun, by covering it and casting a shadow on Earth. It is a result of the exact cross movement of the Moon orbit between the Sun and Earth. 
There are three types of solar eclipse: Total, partial and annular. The people of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Northeastern Kansas, Missouri, Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Tennessee, Southwestern North Carolina, Northeastern Georgia and South Carolina, will be lucky to see this majestic astronomical phenomenon, the Total one.
The first point of contact will be at Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 a.m. PDT. Totality begins there at 10:16 a.m. PDT.
For your safety, use only eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewers. DON'T use ordinary glasses, even very dark ones or homemade filters for looking at the Sun. Happy Eclipse!
