You don’t need to be an astronomer to appreciate the astonishing solar eclipse that will play out across the U.S. later this month. While the logistics of the celestial occurrence are tied to the same cycle that caused a similar event in 1999, that’s for professionals to chart out. For the rest of us, Aug. 21, 2017 is a time to head outside and appreciate a true wonder of the universe as the moon passes between the Earth and sun. The kicker here is that America is going to get a front-row seat of the event, as projects show that the eclipse will cross the continental U.S. and provide for at least two minutes of daylight deprivation.
“The U.S. only covers 2 percent of the globe, so we get very few eclipses,” Matthew Penn, an astronomer with the National Optical Astronomy Observatory, told CBS News in July 2017. “And to have one travel across the entire country is an unprecedented sort of opportunity. It’ll be a heck of day.”
According to projections, the best places to view the event along the so-called “path of totality” span from Oregon, across the Midwest all the day down to Charleston, South Carolina. It’s along this path that 70-mile-wide swath will be treated to a total eclipse and those who want to truly celebrate and making journeys to cities that are hosting a whole lot of visitors on Aug. 21. Steinberg Law Firm, which specializes in personal injury cases, plans to participate in the eclipse by handing out specialized eclipse sunglasses to clients at their three local offices. This free offer should be taken advantage of by anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the day’s main attraction, as staring at the sun and waiting for it to go out is never recommended. According to a NASA-backed event page that details all things eclipse-related, it’s suggested that those who plan to use specialized glasses while viewing the event only remove them when the event is at its peak and the darkness around you permits removal. As the eclipse begins to wane, viewers are strongly advised to put their protective glasses back on.
While adults told you time and again while growing up to not stare directly at the sun, those in Charleston, SC on Aug. 21, 2017 are undoubtedly in for a treat. Thanks to the community service being offered by Steinberg Law Firm, plenty more visitors are going to get the chance to view in full this truly rare occasion. Glasses are on high demand so act quickly!
