NASA announces television coverage for August 21 solar eclipse

Temperature may drop as much as 15° during solar eclipse

There are now two official NASA solar eclipse viewing locations in our region on Monday, August 21.

The 2017 eclipse is the first total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States since February 26, 1979.

Ever since I read Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" as a young girl, l have wanted to experience a total eclipse of the sun. The eclipse will begin at 9:09 a.m. and end at 11:53 a.m. with a peak at 10:28 a.m., NPS said. The focused sunlight can melt the filter and damage the eyes.

Yuvraj Singh dropped, Manish Pandey back for ODIs, T20I
Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul Thakur have also been called upon in the absence of the prime bowlers. Kuldeep Yadav, who was a part of India's team that toured West Indies recently has also been retained.


McDonald's locations in OR are on NASA and the American Astronomical Society's list of certified retailers of eclipse glasses, which allow you to safely watch the solar eclipse on August 21.

You will also need to use solar filter on cameras, binoculars and telescopes and don't use eclipse glasses to look through them. In addition to making sure that eclipse shades or handheld viewers meet the ISO safety standard, they suggest making sure they're in good condition.

Here in OR, we won't see another total solar eclipse until 2169, when one will cross Portland, Seattle, Boise and Salt Lake City - though another one glances the OR coast in 2108.
