Be solar eclipse ready: How to photograph it, safely

The total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21 will be the first total solar eclipse in 99 years. Because the heat from the sun is blocked as well as the light, it will slowly but surely become cooler, resulting in a spooky eclipse breeze. This extraordinary cosmic spectacle will pass through 13 states, and everyone in the continental US will have the opportunity to see at least a partial eclipse, making it the most widely viewed American eclipse of all time. However, if you watched the sun before totality, you will catch a glimpse of the brilliant solar surface and this can cause retinal damage.

You can see times on the eclipse's peak where you live here.

From everything I've read it is worth the trip to travel and see the total eclipse.

Solar eclipse glasses are flying off the shelves.

The email sent by Amazon doesn't specify the exact nature of the defect, but does warn against using the glasses to view the eclipse directly. "This is a great option for viewing the eclipse together as a family, especially if you have been unable to secure a pair of eclipse glasses", said Karyn Perdue, education program manager for The Lab. "Solarscopes actually allow you to see the sun in greater detail". The sun and the moon appear to be the same size, but the sun is 400 times larger and 400 times further from Earth.

Also something to consider, is the idea of making your own pinhole project to look at the eclipse. Particles called neutrinos pass through the solid body of the moon during the eclipse and a second later reach Earth and pass through it, too.
