On Aug. 21, 2017 the sky will go dark midday, and planets and stars will shine bright starting around 2:42 p.m.
One focus of attention will be the sun's outer atmosphere, called the corona, which is revealed when the moon slips in front of the sun and blocks its blinding light.
NY isn't one of the 14 states in the path of totality, the period of total eclipse when the sun is completely blocked by the moon.
Experts predict the natural phenomenon will continue for the next 60 million years, until the distance between the moon and the sun will be too vast. Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially eclipsed, can cause serious and permanent eye damage. However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing - which requires some type of filtering device and indirect viewing where you project an image of the sun onto a screen. "There [are] still whole parts of the sun that can't be seen from satellites and that we just see better at eclipses".
American Astronomical Society (AAS) Eclipse Task Force have advised people driving to the path of totality to stock food, water and have a full tank of petrol. This will be the first time that an eclipse will move from the West and East coasts in 99 years.
It is set to happen locally at 2:45 p.m.
So you'll want to have the right equipment to protect your eyes, and only when the moon completely covers the sun can you look straight into the sky. The phenomenon is expected to begin after 10 a.m. local time in Lincoln Beach, Oregon, and is expected to take an hour and a half to pass over those 14 states.
The best locations to see an optimum total eclipse will be in southern IL and western Kentucky.
