Considering that demand, the American Astronomical Society has updated its safety advice "in response to alarming reports" of unsafe eclipse-viewers popping up online.

Stores across Lexington are reporting that they are out of eclipse glasses and aren't sure when they will get more in stock.

Anecdotal evidence and a few scientific studies suggest that as the moon moves briefly between the sun and the Earth, causing a deep twilight to fall across the land, large swaths of the animal kingdom will alter their. If weather is cloudy, most viewing events will provide a live NASA stream of the eclipse inside. The next solar eclipse in Kansas will be in 2045, according to local officials.

The eclipse will be visible to millions of people as it crosses through 14 states, with the path of totality stretching from Lincoln Beach, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina. However, it will only visible in certain areas. That means that most months the moon's position is either above or below the sun's position when they are in the same part of the sky.

The next total solar eclipse that will be visible from the continental United States will be in 2024.

If you want to find out more about what her team - and many others - hope to learn, check back in the coming days. Normally, if you look directly at the sun, it is too bright and hurts, and you look away quickly, This happens usually before the light can be focused onto the eye's retina long enough to do permanent damage. Some sellers are even printing fake test results on their websites, claiming the glasses are safe. "It was kind of disappointing", said Smith.

"There's no reason to panic if you don't have eclipse viewers themselves", he said.

In the eclipse's "path of totality", the sun will shrink to a sliver before going completely dark for about two and a half minutes.

There are several viewing parties planned here for the community and tourists. Many organizations will be providing these cardboard-framed glasses free of charge. Pizza also will be available for purchase.

"The real glasses look very similar to movie theater 3-D glasses and can be purchased for as little as $2", said Steve Bernas, president and CEO of Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois.

The LAS will be handing out 150 certified solar glasses for free at the Jeffersonville Township Public Library at 6 p.m. August 16.

'In a brief moment of ecstasy, we will understand everything, and together create a new universe. Sunglasses, even dark ones, aren't safe for looking at an eclipse.

"We have an opportunity to experience a spectacular natural phenomenon, and we can enjoy it with some simple protection". The southern half of Wyandotte County Lake at 91st and Leavenworth Road is not in the totality area, while the northern half is, according to the map.

Doug Duncan, director of the Fiske Planetarium at the University of Colorado, Boulder, has had a few unusual run-ins with animals over his many years of eclipse chasing.

Larry Ciupik director of Adler Planetarium's Doane Observatory, hopes even the most modest observations could help scientists fine-tune their knowledge of the solar system.

The Bonner Springs City Library also has an eclipse program planned August 21, with a program in advance scheduled on August 16.

Law enforcement officials are discouraging residents from driving and stopping on the side of a highway to view the eclipse. You could make your own pinhole projector to project the eclipse as a shadow on any flat surface.
