Space India recently organised a series of online interactions with Padma Y Fisher, Senior Research Scientist at the Space Science Institute, California, to take students, researchers, and astronomers through a detailed experience of the total solar eclipse.

For the first time in almost four decades, the United States will be affected by a total solar eclipse on August 21.

The path goes just south of the IN border, which means Fort Wayne will experience a partial solar eclipse with about 85 percent of the sun blocked, Science Central Executive Director Martin S. Fisher said IN a news release.

'Game of Thrones' and Its Ferocious Battle Scene from the Fourth Episode
Conversely, threatening the Lannister Army is probably an efficient way to destabilize Cersei, which is surely what Dany wants. Game of Thrones tends to make your pulse quicken - but now we know exactly which moments in the show are the most thrilling.

In an email sent to buyers of the unverified glasses, Amazon told customers "We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse".

Unfortunately, because the human eye still sees the world as, "sunny", even if the majority of the sun is blocked by the moon, we'll miss the show if it's overcast in Houston, or in any location across the majority of the country.

Many local libraries are handing out glasses on the day of the eclipse, possibly before, so check out that possibility. If it is scratched or damaged, throw it away. The interaction consisted of an interesting presentation on Total Solar Eclipse containing the information on different types of eclipses, reasons behind them, research work going on in this field.

Wal-Mart and a few other stores may be selling eclipse glasses in areas close to totality but they may have sold out already, and I haven't seen any locally, so that may not stretch as far north as Pennsylvania. Even very dark sunglasses can not protect your eyes while looking directly at the sun.

Top photographers will use powerful cameras fitted to telescopes to get the best shots, attaching sun filters so as not to ruin their camera (or their eyes) when preparing the shot. The intense solar rays coming through these devices will damage the solar filter and your eyes.

" Carefully look at your solar filter or eclipse glasses before using them".
