Last solar eclipse of the year on Monday

No, you shouldn't. Whether partial or total, an eclipse is a rare opportunity to see our world looking decidedly different than it normally does.

The path of totality spans about 70 miles (113 kilometers) and will pass through 14 states.

It's one of the most talked about astronomical events of the century-a total solar eclipse. The next total solar eclipse in India will not be before 2034.

A total solar eclipse is crossing the United States from OR to South Carolina On August 21, 2017. The next time people in the USA get those bragging rights will be in January 2316, according to the American space agency.

There will also be many changes during eclipse 2017. A lunar eclipse, by contrast, occurs when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon.

THE CANADIAN PRESSThe moon covers the sun during a partial solar eclipse in Victoria on August 21, 2017. Earlier Monday, a NASA photographer captured a gorgeous photo of the ISS transiting the sun as the moon took a bite out of the star's bright face.

Despite the picturesque qualities of the eclipse, remember that looking directly at the Sun can cause damage to eyes.

The entire eclipse will take a total of four hours, four minutes to make its way across the nation.

"Cross the outstretched, slightly open fingers of one hand over the outstretched, slightly open fingers of the other, creating a waffle pattern; with your back to the sun, look at your hands' shadow on the ground...the little spaces between your fingers will project a grid of small images on the ground, showing the sun as a crescent during the partial phases of the eclipse", NASA wrote on its website.

"Totality" - the term for when the Moon completely blocks out light from the Sun - begins near Lincoln Beach, Oregon, at 10:16 am Pacific time (1:16 pm Eastern, or 1716 GMT).

Researchers say the eclipse is important because it will enable astronomers to study the outer realm of the Sun, known as the corona. Use only approved devices (eclipse glasses, pinhole camera, etc.) for viewing the eclipse.
